This week we bring you a few gems we’re loving right now–a boricua bachatero, one of our favorite reggaetoneras showing off her MC skills, and a local D.C. group bringing social justice cumbia–plus a THE MOST MIAMI WhatsApp audio message from Vero’s sister, which…uncovers a possible Ivy Queen side hustle?! And because we stay doing the most, we throw in a grammar PSA about the “X” in Spanish and a rant about white Marxists. Ya tu sabes, the usual.
