First I gotta give props to Rich L. for dropping this video in the comments yesterday. I havenâ€™t been up-to-date on my Spanish language TV for a minute so thanks for this. Now on to Tego. What more can you say about duke? Heâ€™s beyond a class act. Heâ€™s as real as you and I.
The above is taken from Univisonâ€™s Don Francisco Presenta. But before I get to TC, what the hell was up with that dumb-ass Valerie. She came off like a damn idiot. â€œReggaeton is about sex!â€ Shut the hell up. And those Mexican ranchero dudes, why they gotta hate on a genre they donâ€™t know jack about? Don Francisco then reminds everyone that urban music is much more. Tego sings a bit from â€œMi PapÃ¡,â€ a song about his deceased father. He also made it clear that it was a hip-hop song. He let some tears drop, got choked up and everyone shut the hell up . . . especially that Valeria chick.
Tego cried, y que? Thatâ€™s a real dude right there. He cried because his pops didnâ€™t see his success or his grandchildren. I can relate. My pops had a stroke last year and I cried like a mommaâ€™s boy on the first day of school. I didnâ€™t want to lose my pops. Thank God he's still with me. But my pops will never be the same, his mind wanders at times. Shit, I donâ€™t even know if heâ€™ll remember that Iâ€™m getting hitched this year but thatâ€™s life. Tego reminds us that life and family are bigger than rap, bigger than media, bigger than industry parties. And thatâ€™s real talk.
