It began 10 years ago! In July 2006 Cuban Americans in Miami, Florida got their first hope that Fidel Castro was assumed dead. Most Cubans took to the streets of Miami hoping that it would all be over. While reaching out to engineer/producer Adrian “Drop” Santalla @dropdeadbeats. @PITBULL had a vision of taking the record Chango from Latin Express to reproduce this sound. When Pitbull gave him a call to finish the record, Drop was at his brothers’s wake; thus Pitbull dedicating the first few seconds of the record, screaming out “This goes out to DROP’s older brother Raul Garcia!”.
Drop and Pitbull organized a masterpiece for the Cuban people, it had the recipe for the anthem, a voice for the Cuban people. Ya Se Acabo was released in all local radio stations in Miami, DJ Laz and Power 96 being the number one advocate. It was short-lived when news broke Fidel was still alive. Now almost 10 years later, this song is perfectly suited for what just happened on Friday November 25, 2016. #yaseacabo #pitbull #dropdeadbeats #drop #miami #cuba #castroisdead #fidelisdead #castrodead #VivaCuba @djlaz973 @power965
This post was copied from Adrian “Drop” Santalla’s FB, a good friend of 305 Magazine. We’ve been waiting along time to push this song. The first time was a false alarm. Today we are over joyed that the tyrant dictator is gone. Does this mean Cuba is free? no, it means its a step closer to be. – 305 Magazine
