I just found out that legendary New York salsero Willie Colón is going to perform in New York City for the first time in… this century, I think. It’s been a long time anyway. This song is the first track on his 1970 album, La Gran Fuga. I wish I could tell you what the lyrics mean, but I’m not even sure what exact language it is (aside from the spoken bit of Spanish towards the end). Despite that, this is one of Willie Colón‘s signature tunes. Old school hip hop fans might recognize some of it, as it’s been sampled a few times, most notably in Beat Street. I’d love to go, but my broke ass can’t even afford Clearasil these days; however, if anyone is feeling generous, I have no problem accepting a donation for my efforts here. Have a great week people!
