Residente has reignited his beef with fellow musician J Balvin. The former released a jaw-dropping track along with music producer Bizarrap. The two attacked J Balvin relentlessly in the 8 minute and 39 second song. Twitter has now unleashed a slew of memes mocking the Columbian singer.
Residente’s rap session was divided into three chapters where he bluntly targeted managers taking credit for work and musicians releasing music for fame. He attacked Balvin as well, among many other topics.
In the last chapter titled “Capítulo Tres: El Caballero de los Espejos,” he sang about the MOJAITA-singer whom he has been beefing with since November. Balvin took a dig at last year’s Latin GRAMMYs for not including urban representation in the nominations, which led to Residente calling Balvin “a little hot dog.” Residente also compared Balvin’s music to cheaply available fast food.
The Bellacoso singer fired shots at Balvin on his latest track and called him a “hot dog” yet again. He also referred to him as a “coward,” “racist” and also the “Logan Paul of Reggaeton.” His rap included:
“He’s so insecure that he has to be announcing on Instagram how much money he makes.”
Residente also took a dig at Balvin’s misogynistic past where he featured two Black women as chained dogs.
