Gotas de Rap

Gotas de Rap

Gotas de Rap "Drops of Rap" are a Colombian Rap Group from Bogotá. They toured Europe in 1995 and in their songs they rap in Spanish about the social and political problems in Colombia. They had huge success among the ghettos and rappers but never reached stardom because of their controversial lyrics and new breed of music for the Colombian people. Hip-hop only came to its peak in 2002 and has dominated radio stations since then. The new form of hip hop is reggaeton, a hybrid of RnB and Rap.

In 1998, Gotas De Rap dismantled because of the sudden death of Melisa, the female rapper. She died in a car accident leaving the band harm and the fans devastation. Not much is known about the rap group but that some members of the group started a Clothing line called "Ayara". One of the rappers from the Band "Donpopo" moved to the Netherlands in 2002 and has started his own music career there.

Gotas de Rap is famous for their song "Reina de mi Alma" featured in the famous Colombian soap opera "Por Que Diablos".
