Tego will be paired for a mash-up performance with another headlining artist of a different genre for a spectacular and memorable collaborative performance.
...
Busy in the studio preparing for his next album "THE UNDERDOG/ "EL SUBESTIMADO" due out on Jiggiri/Atlantic Records on August 29th 2006, Tego has been absent from the ultra-hot reggaeton scene of late. Though he paved the way for many newly discovered Latino artists with his original beats, Spanish rap and Latino-centric sounds, it's this new generation of artists that seem to have taken over the spotlight. Not any longer.
...
His first album, "EL ABAYARDE" released in 2002, broke sales records in the then-underground reggaeton genre, selling a remarkable 50,000 copies on the first day of its release, and made Tego an overnight Latin superstar. As Latin rappers have been embraced by the American hip-hop culture, Tego has been featured on
a variety of mix tapes and has been invited to add his trademark vocal style to collaborations
and remixes by the likes of Fat Joe's Terror Squad (the #1 smash, "Lean Back"), Usher, 50 Cent, Cypress Hill, and Wyclef Jean.
From his appearances at New York's annual Puerto Rican Day parades in 2004 and 2005, to becoming the first Spanish-language artist to be featured on New York radio station, Power-105, Tego has been breaking cultural barriers. Among Tego's achievements are Latin Grammy and Billboard Award nominations, a Source Award for "International Artist of the Year," a Tu Música award, and nominations for La Gente and Lo Nuestro awards.
In the spring of 2005, Tego signed with Atlantic Records via a deal with his own Jiggiri Records label -- becoming the first reggaeton artist to ink a global pact with a major label. His second proper album, "THE UNDERDOG / "EL SUBESTIMADO," is due out from Jiggiri/Atlantic Records on August 29th 2006.

Tego Calderón was born in Santurce, Puerto Rico, in 1972.
...
It was there that Calderón began to soak up the influences of American hip-hop. Hearing the California gangsta rap troupe N.W.A. proved pivotal. It really caught my attention, it was something that I related to, and I decided I wanted to be a rapper, Calderón said.
Moving back to Puerto Rico, Calderón also found a new appreciation for such Jamaican dancehall performers as Buju Banton, Super Cat, and Ninja Man. Around the same time, the Reggaetón movement began to become a force in Puerto Rico. Calderón began to forge his own multicultural rap style, earning a reputation as a street poet with a fresh musical approach.
He credits fellow Puerto Rican hip-hop pioneer Vico C with inspiring him to rap in Spanish, instead of imitating the English catch phrases of African-American hiphop. Establishing himself as a new voice of the streets, he made a series of appearances on best-selling Latin hip-hop compilations. A remix collection entitled EL ENEMY DE LOS GUASÍBIRI, released in 2004, consisted largely of tracks which had appeared on those early compilations.
EL ABAYARDE released in 2002, broke sales records in the then-underground Reggaetón genre, selling a remarkable 50,000 on the fi rst day of its release, and Calderón became an overnight Latin superstar. Just three months after making his solo debut, Calderón was greeted with a tumultuous response at a sold-out concert at Roberto Clemente Coliseum in San Juan.
...
When Tego first headlined New Yorks Madison Square Garden in August 2003, The New York Times heralded him as the most forward-looking performer of the artists on the bill, noting that Mr. Calderón made the best case for Reggaetón as music with room to grow.
...
As Latin rappers have been embraced by the American hip-hop culture, Calderón has been featured on a variety of mix tapes and has been invited to add his trademark vocal style to collaborations and remixes by the likes of Fat Joes Terror Squad (the ..1 smash, Lean Back), Usher, 50 Cent, Cypress Hill, and Wyclef Jean, among others.

In a cover story on Calderón and Reggaetón, the Village Voice noted that Tego almost single-handedly...steered his countrys dominant youth culture out of the island and Latino neighborhoods, and into the American stream of pop consciousness.

Not only is Tego, like many of his Salsa heroes, a formidable storyteller...he also incorporates the lyrical percussion and fi ne rhythmic lines that can be found in the works of Luis Pales Matos.
