amazon has it listed for 2008, imdaly, but it shows a 34.98 MSRP, making it 25.49. at 19.99 msrp, it may have been a blind buy, but 25.49, far too many big titles coming to justify it at that cost.

Good news for the Latino Community. Just one thing from the note I don't agree with.

the film, which stars rappers Daddy Yankee and Maestro in the tale of a gang member who escapes his life by becoming a reggae artist.
I don't think that's the right statement. The correct term it’s a Reggaeton artist. (IMO)

What is Reggaeton (That's what Daddy Yankee blends with Hip-hop tendencies):

Reggaeton (also spelled reggaetón, and known as reguetón and reggaetón in Spanish) is a form of urban music which became popular with Latin American youth during the early 1990s and spread over the course of 10 years to North American, European and Asian audiences. Originating in Panama, reggaeton blends Jamaican music influences of reggae and dancehall with those of Latin America, such as bomba, plena, salsa, merengue, latin pop and bachata as well as that of hip hop, contemporary R&B, and electronica. However, reggaeton is also combined with rapping or singing in Spanish. The influence of this genre has spread to the wider Latino communities in the United States, as well as the Latin American audience.

While it takes influences from hip hop and Jamaican dancehall, it would be wrong to define reggaeton as the Hispanic or Latino version of either of these genres; reggaeton has its own specific beat and rhythm, whereas Latino hip hop is simply hip hop recorded by artists of Latino descent. The specific rhythm that characterizes reggaeton is referred to as "Dem Bow. The name is a reference to the title of the dancehall song by Shabba Ranks that first popularized the beat in the early 1990s. Reggaeton's origins represents a hybrid of many different musical genres and influences from various countries in the Caribbean, Latin America and the United States. The genre of reggaeton however is most closely associated with Puerto Rico, as this is where the musical style later popularized and became most famous, and where the vast majority of its current stars originated

Gasolina! Dame mas gasolina!

I think that's how the song goes? I remember it being one of his biggest hits in the U.S.
