Daddy Yankee Biography

Personal Life: Ramón Luis Ayala Rodríguez was born on the 3rd February 1977, in San Juan, Puerto Rico. He is a singer 👨🏻‍🎤, songwriter, producer as well as actor known under the professional name Daddy Yankee.

During his childhood, Ramon grew-up influenced by his musical family, including his father and some relatives of his mother. At the age of 12, Ramón started singing and especially loved reggae and hip-hop.

Although Ramón joined the baseball league, he had to abandon this after having been involved in an accident when he was under fire and was wounded by two AK-47 bullets – one bullet grazed his arm and the other touched his right thigh. After this incident, he focused on the underground rap movement that was emerging at the time.


Career: He began his career with hip-hop and Latin rhythms, but we can say that his greatest success came after he began to interpret and produce his Latin hip-hop songs. He has received several nicknames in the music industry, such as the 30-30 for the message containing the lyrics of his songs which represent many aspects of daily life in Puerto Rico.

Daddy Yankee earned the title of King of Improvisation for his special creative ability, a virtue that made him the winner for five consecutive years of various Street Jam Reggae Awards. Eventually, he abandoned the traditional rap and become one of the first artists to perform reggaetón music internationally. Daddy Yankee now owns a rich discography including 55 singles, seven studio albums, 72 music videos, two live albums, two DVDs, two mixtape compilations, a compilation album and soundtrack.

The most successful albums earned certifications for sales, adding huge sums to the total size of Daddy Yankee’s net worth. These were “Barrio Fino” (2004), “Barrio Fino en Directo” (2005), “El Cartel: The Big Boss” (2007), “Talento de Barrio” (2008), “Mundial” (2010), “Prestige” (2012) and “Kind Daddy” (2013).

In addition to this, Yankee has added sums from other engagements like acting. He has landed roles in several feature films such as “Straight Outta Puerto Rico” (2007) and “Talento de Barrio” (2008) – the latter was also produced by Daddy Yankee. He has also appeared in various series on television, such as “The Bold and the Beautiful” (2010), “Combate Americas” (2012), “La Voz Kids” (2015) and others.
