Duki, one of the greatest Argentine exponents of trap (a subgenre of rap, which originated in the late 90s in the United States), launched this afternoon Sold out dates, a new song and video clip that shows the artist in different shows.
At the beginning and at the end he can be seen walking in Bahía Blanca through Alsina and saying: “Good morning, we are filming a short film, how much do you think a palm tree is worth?” At the end of the video, a man replied: “In Monte Hermoso, 15,000 mangoes each palm tree …”.
His real name is Mauro Ezequiel Lombardo and he is 24 years old. Started doing freestyle (rap battles, improvising the words and rhyming) in El Quinto Escalón, a competition that began in 2012 in Parque Rivadavia, in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Caballito, thanks to Ysy A (Alejo Nahuel Acosta), a boy who at that time had only 13 years old.
From a few they were happening to many, many: so many that El Quinto Escalón ended in 2017 with battles in the Malvinas Argentinas microstadium, where the youngest could not with Dtoke, a recognized freestyler Argentinian who is 34 years old.
From there came some of the exponents of Argentine trap, who no longer dedicate themselves to improvising but to record songs and launch them on digital platforms, doing shows throughout the country and even internationally. Others continued to compete by doing freestyle in the FMS Argentina, a professional league that started in 2018, where he won WOS. This year the third season is being done.
The video was published on the YouTube channel of the Belarusian group “Aura”. The video has already gained more than 125 thousand views.

These lines end with Lukashenko’s words: “Just know – you will not give up your loved one!” We recall that Lukashenko said this on August 4, shortly before the presidential election in Belarus. This is how he concluded his annual message to the people and parliament of the republic.
Representatives of the singer Buinova said that they did not know that Lukashenko’s quote was used in this composition. Kirkorov’s spokesman also said it had nothing to do with Lukashenko’s support.
It will be recalled that on August 8, on the eve of the presidential election, a concert in support of Lukashenko was scheduled to take place, with many Russian stars scheduled to perform, but their representatives urged artists not to do so.
As a result, Leonid Agutin, Grigory Leep, as well as American rapists Tyga and Saint Jhn refused to perform. On September 17, Nikolai Baskov did not listen to fan requests and spoke in Minsk.
From his residence, located in the Novalito neighborhood of Valledupar, the vallenato singer-songwriter Gustavo Gutiérrez Cabello, who celebrates 80 years of life, continues “staring at the sky, and among the mountains makes his thoughts fly”, just as he did long ago to create true jewels of our folklore as Camino Largo, immortalized by the voice of Diomedes Díaz and the accordion of his great friend Colacho Mendoza, on the album Para mi fanaticada (1980).
The letters of the ‘Romancero del Vallenato‘, due to their lyrical richness, are among the favorites of artists such as Hermanos Zuleta, Diomedes Díaz, Jorge Oñate, Binomio de Oro, and transcended to other genres from the hand of Pacho Galán and Billo’s Caracas Boys who recorded The Thorn for him.
In dialogue with EL HERALDO, Gutiérrez Cabello expressed having mixed feelings for reaching this stage. “I feel great nostalgia for my great friends who leftLike Colacho Mendoza, Rafael Escalona, El Trío Malanga, which was the one with whom I participated in the parrandas; but hey, I’m happy because I reached 80, I feel that I have lived them well, in fact 20 years ago I quit drinking to have a better lifestyle”.
Many have classified him as a poet or philosopher of music; he, plain and simple, considers himself a “romantic and dreamer.”
Just as he expressed it in the theme Landscape of the Sun, recorded by Jorge Oñate and Juancho Rois. “All my life I have been a dreamer, a sensitive, simple person, I live a lot remembering when I made my songs along all these long roads that Valledupar has for Patillal and Atánquez. My life has been full of bohemia, all my songs came from my soul, I always liked poetry and I have a sensitivity for verses, I partied a lot with Jaime Molina who was the ‘Poeta de Valledupar’, So my songs bear that stamp, that indelible mark of romanticism“, Held.
Regarding the song that most moves him to listen, he does not hesitate to say that it is Confidencias, his first composition. He also delights with The thorn, Long way, Without measuring distances and My child grew up, dedicated to his son Gustavo José when he turned 10 years old. “I had four childrenOne of them died seven years ago (Jaime Daniel), two work in Bogotá, Gustavo José and Evaristo Raúl, and Kike who lives with me, I adore them all ”.
A complex moment was the one that lived Luis Jara in January of this year, after he was admitted to the hospital and underwent surgery after an internal bleeding that had him on the verge of a thrombosis.
The entertainer suffered a tear playing sports in Miami during his vacations and, at the beginning of January, he resumed his normal activities, without giving more importance to the injury.
Jara related this fact in conversation with María Luisa Godoy through his Instagram program. “I had a tear, because my children are very athletic, so I got hit on the beach with my middle son, who is dry, and he gave me a tear. It had never hit me, it’s heavy“, said.
The worst came later, when he resumed his usual activities and woke up with “a ball in the calf and it started to hurt”, he counted. Given this, he called his kinesiologist, who recommended an emergency treatment.
“Four hours to Santiago, I arrive at the clinic, twelve at night, they look at my leg, they did all the tests. The pain was getting over me and at three in the morning I grabbed the doctor, hit the wall with a combo and said like this: ‘Cut my leg with …!’ That was the pain level“He added.
Before starting the operation, a particular situation was generated with the doctor in charge of the procedure. “The only thing that mattered to me was that the hueon operated on me. The guy says ‘now, what music do you want to listen to?’ And guess what I told him, ‘mine, of course’ “, he indicated.
No doubt, the singer requested that they put his song In love, released in 2018 in the company of the duo 330am.
“Fortunately I was saved, because that clot could have mutated to the brainIt could have mutated my lung, it could have generated necrosis, my leg could have been cut off, “he said.

“Don’t let the public get scared, perform a song, the community has to get permission, this is very difficult to implement,” said Rhoma Irama at a press conference on Defending Copyright via Zoom, Friday (28/8/2020).
“For example live concerts, if you have to have permission, it’s difficult (to sing a song from a songwriter), ”continued Rhoma Irama.
Therefore, he hopes that the regulation will be reviewed and discussed further in order to find a bright spot.
“So this must be reviewed, or what. Before being displayed, you have to have permission, this is difficult, ”said Rhoma Irama again.
Apart from Rhoma Irama who was present to discuss copyright issues, there were also musicians Candra Darusman.
Candra Darusman emphasized that copyright does not only talk about legal aspects but there are other aspects in it.
“Back to the question cover lagu, indeed, the phenomenon of using songs inupload, not only legal aspects, but also creative aspects, other technological aspects and even defeating legal aspects. With the development of technology, these various aspects are dissolved, ”said Candra Darusman.
An open-minded celebration of female desire brimming with graphic sexual metaphors, the song “WAP” by Cardi B with the collaboration of Megan Thee Stallion it tops the rankings, and has left the American right wing heated and upset by “indecency.”
But this masterclass in obscenities, released this month, whose acronym for a well-lubricated vagina has had good press, leaves nothing to the imagination.
Some consider it a feminist hymn. Others are horrified by her outrageous indulgence in shameless details. But “WAP” started at the top of the rankings in the United States and in just weeks reached several reputed summer lists.
“I don’t cook, I don’t clean / But let me tell you, how I got this ring” (I don’t cook, I don’t clean / But let me tell you, how I got this ring ”, Cardi B raps in one of the few lines that can be published in a family media outlet, before beginning to give details of her sexual prowess.
The song itself is simple, and its most prominent musical element is a contagious part of Frank Ski’s 90s Baltimore dance song “There´s Some Whores in This House”.
It’s the lyrical presentation that makes the difference: Cardi B, from the Bronx, and Megan Thee Stallion, from Houston, delight in singing every juicy verse.
The video clip shows the two women dancing in a fantastic mansion worthy of Willy Wonka, jumping in shoes with high heels and wearing candy-colored corsets among exotic animals such as tigers and snakes in some scenes, and in a flat pool with vinyl bikinis in others.
Critics praised the song, and a dance challenge from “WAP” went viral on TikTok.
But some scandalized Republicans responded with disgust.
“#WAP (which I overheard) made me want to pour holy water in my ears,” tweeted Republican congressional hopeful James Bradley of Los Angeles.
Ben Shapiro, a prominent conservative columnist, did a dramatic reading of the lyrics – which led to much ridicule – and called the hit a step backward for feminists.
But the negative answer has not limited the rise of “WAP.” “They keep talking and the numbers keep going up,” Cardi B, 27, said recently.
Some social media users point out that conservatives who criticize Cardi B also elected a president who boasted of “grabbing” women “by the pussy.”
Her criticisms come as no surprise to Sherri Williams, a mass media expert at American University in Washington, DC, who has written about Cardi B.
“Patriarchy always punishes women for discussing any of their sexual experiences”he told AFP.
“If a woman is a survivor of sexual assault, she is blamed for her actions or for the clothes she wears. If a woman talks about sexual desire, she is classified as immoral “, he indicated.
The “hypocrisy” is even greater if we consider that the two rappers on “WAP” are black, Williams said.
“Traditionally, American values have meant the sexual subjugation and sexual terrorism of women of color”she claimed, citing slavery and gynecological investigations that exploited black women as examples.
Williams believes the song also lays bare the incorrect notion that feminism is “reserved for white, affluent, straight women” with prestigious college degrees.
Politically active mother who is not ashamed of her own success, Cardi B personifies feminine ideals, Williams said. But “because before she did striptease and we met her on a reality show and she comes from a working-class family (…) for some people they seem to deny and dismiss her feminism.”
First lady “WAP” vibes
For the well-known gynecologist Jen Gunter, “WAP” is a new “relevant cultural landmark” with which to “combat vaginal and vulvar misinformation”.
“Our society makes women ashamed to talk about their body parts”said the author of the book “The Vagina Bible.”
Gunter agreed that criticism of the song was to be expected. “There is nothing more dangerous for a weak man than a woman empowered about her own sexuality,” he said.
She praised “WAP” for opening conversations that can help women who feel embarrassed about their bodies, noting that pop culture rarely “talks about vaginas in a constructive way.”
Gunter praised “WAP” and other artistic expressions of its kind for allowing “women to express themselves in the same way that men have expressed themselves.” “I think that is a big step forward,” he said.
On Tuesday, during the Republican national convention, which aired the US First Lady’s speech, former Congressional candidate DeAnna Lorraine tweeted that “America needs many more women like Melania Trump and fewer like Cardi B.”
The rapper whose birth name is Belcalis AlmanzarHe responded by tweeting a photo of Donald Trump’s third wife, a former model, practically naked.
The image did not appear to be a criticism. Cardi B said she embodied “the vibes” of her song. “A simple observation,” he noted.
