Daddy Yankee Overview


Ramón "Raymond" Luis Ayala Rodríguez (February 3, 1977), known artistically as Daddy Yankee, is a Latin Grammy Award winning Puerto Rican reggaeton recording artist. Ayala was born in Río Piedras, the largest district of San Juan, where he became interested in music at a young age. In his youth he was interested in baseball, and aspired to become a Major League Baseball player. He was unable to continue this sport when he received an injury to one of his legs, leaving him unable to walk correctly. He then became involved in the underground rap movement that was in its early stages in Puerto Rico, later to be called Reggaeton. After receiving lessons from several artists within the genre, he developed an independent career, first recording in a production titled Playero 37. After this he began to produce independent albums. His first solo album was "No Mercy". He subsequently formed a duo with Nicky Jam, and then continued his solo career with the releases of "El Cartel" and "El Cartel II". This led him be one of many pioneers of the reggaeton genre.
