Hip-Hop en Tu Idioma, Vol. 1 is a convenient compilation released by Machete Music that compiles a broad range of rap en español, including songs by such major artists as Control Machete and Daddy Yankee. Of course, Daddy Yankee is a reggaeton artist, not exactly a rap one, but it's this fuzziness that makes Hip-Hop en Tu Idioma, Vol. 1 so interesting. The artists come from all corners of the Spanish-speaking world, from Spain to Chile to California, and they all have different styles of their own. Machete did a good job picking quality inclusions, and assuming there's a market for this sort of compilation, a long-running series would be ideal for consumers who enjoy sampling a variety of rap en español but don't want to splurge on full-length albums.
