Audio: Jose Reyes Raps (Reggaeton)
Listen to Mets Shortstop Jose Reyes in his rapping World Premiere.
"No Hay Amigo" (There Is No Friend) was just a rough demo by Big Mato and Vakero which got leaked in the Dominican Republic. Producer SPKilla got Reyes, or "La Melaza" as he's called by those who know him well, involved. He immediately got hooked on the track and decided to do a remix of it, inviting along established reggaeton artist Voltio and Poeta Callejero.
The lyrics of the song are based on the struggles Reyes encountered as a youngster in Palmar Arriba, his hometown on the Caribbean island. He makes reference to those people who are only there for you when you're at the top, but are nowhere to be seen when you're down and out.
