Episode 74: Daddy Yankee’s Barrio Fino

This week, we do a deep dive into the album that ushered in the global reggaeton explosion of 2004 – Daddy Yankee’s Barrio Fino. Now fifteen years old (!!!), we revisit this timeless classic with Reggaeton historian and music journalist Eduardo Cepeda (of Episode 55: Cholo Jams fame!). We talk about El Cangri’s MC skills, BX ties, political evolutions, and why Gasolina might not be as dirty as you originally thought.

Featuring music by Daddy Yankee.

Don’t forget to follow Eduardo on Twitter and IG!
