Quedate Callao, Siete Nueve (Tiraera a Daddy Yankee)

Media went crazy a few weeks ago when candidate John McCain introduced Daddy Yankee as one of his supporters at a Phoenix High School. People were shocked to see reggaeton’s icon endorsing McCain, of course him supporting Obama would have meant nothing to the press. I’m personally over the Republican plan and ready for a change. Fat Joe and company criticizing Yankee for his stance on politics need to get themselves educated. I’m not a fan of opportunistic offerings, but a rapper by the name of SieteNueve has manifested his anger in the song “Quedate Callado.” A very clever song, nicely put-together, which does an excellent job making its point, “mejor quedate callado si vas a hablar por nosotros.” The reason behind the song might not have as much weight to be so aggressive, I actually hate the title of the song simply because it goes against my beliefs; it is time to speak out, keeping silence is for conformists. But I must say this is a great rap tiraera song that does a fine job picturing the current political tension among the Latinos and especially Puerto Ricans (living in the Island), American Citizens who cannot vote. "Quedate Callao" is available for free download at Siete Nueve's MySpace.

I like it. To me, McCain is the best senator in the U.S., but I'm also ready for a change. The excerpts from archival speech and McCain mentioning The Gasolina are Video Bizarro material.

McCain a great senator? Yes, jajaja, I actually do agree, well he is a senator from my state and I always find him brave for defying his own party. Hate to say this but I don't think I'll ever vote for a Republican... just not right.... to me...

Well, I don’t know if he is the best senator...but, he has showed integrity and judgment... that is without mentioning he has done more for the immigration reform than anybody in the DNC. Anyways, what do I care...? I was thrill to hear that one of Puertorrican’s post influential singer was backing McCain up!, that’s what I call having courage to stand up for what you believe in and not just be a bystander or even worst a follower, which seems to be what BFJoe stands for. Quedarse callao is not the answer to PR’s status quo! Tenemos que GRITAR q estamos cansaos de ser 2nd class citizens!
