Residente is back with explosive new music…
The 45-year-old Puerto Rican rapper, singer, songwriter and filmmaker, whose real name is René Pérez Joglar, has released the new diss single “Bajo y Bateria” via 5020 Records.
As Latin urban continues to significantly increase in popularity and consumption within the mainstream, Residente continues to stand at the pinnacle as one of the best lyricists in the rap game, with hardly any competition.
With a snarling, sardonic delivery that is as playful as it is vicious, Residente testifies to his unmatched lyrical mastery.
He knows this well, spitting verses like,
“Ya nadie en el género urbano sonríe conmigo que sus dientes me los puse de collar,” this time challenging fellow Puerto Rican rapper Cosculluela.
In March, Cosculluela pleaded guilty for domestic violence against his ex Jennifer Fungenzi. “Por más que reces, los puercos como tú no van al cielo,” Residente snarls.
In a wildly potent nine-minute diss track, the ex-Calle 13 frontman challenges the confines of substantial Latin pop with stunning and riveting wordplay that’ll make jaws drop.
