We have often heard D. Gómez aka Kaydy Cain saying that he started rapping in his neighbourhood of Carabanchel because he didn’t know how to sing. Whilst at the beginning of this decade he edged into the public eye in two almost cult collectives Corredores de Bloque and PXXR GVNG to lay the foundations of the trap phenomenon that would explode in Spain a few years later, in private he was studying Héctor Lavoe, Ray Barretto and Ismael Rivera. Truth is, the rapper wanted to be a sonero...and he has ended up being both things at the same time:  he raps in a white suit and rumbas in sneakers. Whatever they serve him. And if they don’t serve him he helps himself: Kaydy always get what he wants in the urban self-service.
