Can it be true? After years of recording tiraeras (diss tracks) against one another and refusing to appear together in concert, “El Cangri” and “El Rey" have made peace Puerto Rican daily Primera Hora reports that Don Omar took the stage during a Wisin y Yandel concert at Puerto Rico’s El Coliseo on March 8, and as he jumped into his hit “Nadie Como Tú,” Daddy Yankee made a surprise entrance, crossing the stage to give his former enemy a bro hug in an act of reconciliation that shocked everyone in attendance. The pair then delved into “Gata Gangster,” a collaboration from their pre-beef days in 2005, and Yankee improvised a verse that went a little something like this: “Listen up everyone, this is a reunion that’ll go down in the books/at the concert of “El Duo De La Historia” (Wisin y Yandel)/This scene will stay fresh in your memories/Here are four great singers who have brought glory to Puerto Rico/The Don and The Big Boss have settled their differences/we’re going to make money, and that’s called intelligence.” (It rhymed in Spanish, we swear.) Congrats to both of these vets for coming to their senses and realizing that it pays to be friends, especially when there’s a total of about 15 legit stars in your genre of choice.
