About Daddy Yankee

La Rompe Corazones (The Heartbreaker) from January 2017
Daddy Yankee (Ramón Ayala Rodríguez) was born in 1977 in Río Piedras, San Juan, Puerto Rico. He started out in mixtapes in 1992.

His nickname is “El Cangri.” That is Puerto Rican slang for someone well-connected like a congressman. “ElCangri.com” was the title of Yankee’s 2002 album. It was his first to attract international attention.

Yankee released “Barrio Fino” in 2004. “Gasolina” put Daddy Yankee on the world map and the rest is history.

Daddy Yankee Concerts in New York City

El Cangri plays the Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk, Thursday September 21, 2017 at 8pm.

Daddy Yankee and Don Omar battle to be the king of Reggaeton at Madison Square Garden July 30, 2016 at 8pm.

“The Kingdom: Daddy Yankee vs Don Omar” tour is an unusual concept. When they were young up-and-coming artists, the two recorded together. Later the relationship went sour and devolved into one of the biggest rap battles in Latin music. The two surprised audiences by working together on stage in 2009.

The Kingdom Tour started in December 2015 and will run for two years with an accompanying album and a TV show. The show is being presented as a musical boxing match. Yankee and Omar will take turns playing sets. The audience will vote for their favorite artist through a special mobile app for the event. It’s a remarkable reunion for two of the top artists in their genre.
