Further Proof That Daddy Yankee Sucks


A few years ago I brought you all the news that no-talent reggaeton dipshit Daddy Yankee was supporting Republican corpse John McCain in the presidential election. Now here's a story about how he may be a thief, too, as he stands accused of hiring a bunch of Mass artists and locking them inside a room with uncomfortable furniture while they cranked out his mega-hits (or something like that). Courtesy of Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly:

Just having a Reebok endorsement deal and an honorary award from Harvard University is not enough to justify suing rapper Daddy Yankee in a Massachusetts court, a judge has ruled. The Puerto Rican artist, among the most successful stars in the reggaeton genre, was sued by a group of Springfield musicians who claimed that a producer affiliated with Daddy Yankee had lured them to Puerto Rico to write and record an album. In their lawsuit, the members of the “Springfield Crew” say once there, they were forced in live in a single room without furniture and sleep on the floor for months and were never compensated for the resulting songs or recordings. They also claim Daddy Yankee swiped one of their tunes for his hit, “Salgo Pa la Calle.”
