His name may sound as though he comes from New York, but Daddy Yankee was born and raised in Puerto Rico. To many, he might be a relative unknown, but to a growing number of fans all over the world, the name Daddy Yankee is synonymous with reggaeton.
Daddy Yankee tells the story of this hard-working, incredibly successful musician. From his youth living in a poverty-stricken barrio to first-class flights to performance venues worldwide, readers learn what it is about Daddy that makes him successful. In Daddy Yankee, the author also tells the story of reggaeton's development and how it relates to the American phenomenon of hip-hop.
Like many musicians, Daddy Yankee's influence extends beyond music. Daddy Yankee also tells how he continues his connection to his childhood home in Puerto Rico, and how he helps those who are still mired in poverty. It is a good lesson for everyone.
