El Individuo is one of Havana’s most celebrated rappers who lives in the space between “world music” and the prolific Cuban hip hop scene. He has been a part of international collaborations like Gilles Peterson’s Súbelo Cuba, while continuing to represent his city through forward-looking rap. His newest EP, ‘2020 Escribo’ dropped at the end of 2020.. Most recently, El Individuo collaborated with Dominican producer and emcee Mediopicky on ‘El Que Sabe’. According to Remezcla, the song is “built on a spectral dembow beat turbo-loaded with unsettling echoes and distortion, El Individuo and Mediopicky take turns alchemizing boastfulness into poignant wisdom that newcomers would do well to absorb.”
