Ramón Luis Ayala Rodríguez but also known as "Daddy Yankee." He was born on February 3, 1977, in Río Piedras, the largest district of San Juan, Puerto Rico. In his childhood he was a very good baseball-player but unexpectedly he suffered an injury to one of his legs which left him with a permanent limp. This was the reason why he had to give up baseball. He began his career at the age of thirteen. In those times the reggaeton was a rhythm that was recently growing up. This motivated him to start playing it and tried to take it to the top and this was exactly what happened.
Even though the business side of Daddy Yankee threatened to overshadow his music, Barrio Fino stands tall as the definitive reggaeton album of its time. He has a Reggaeton, Latin pop, and Hip-hop style. Daddy Yankee became the first reggaeton act to debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart with Barrio Fino in 2004.
Daddy Yankee's best albums were: "Barrio Fino", "El Cartel: The Big Boss", and "Talento de Barrio." His top selling song was called "Gasolina", with over 82,000 cds being sold on the week it dropped.
