Recently I learned that several months ago, the Venezuelan rapper Canserbero killed his friend by knifing him and then jumped out of a ten story window to his own death. According to published reports, his mother passed away when he was 9, and his half brother was killed 5 years later. Death was a recurring theme in his music. I stopped paying attention for a while and one of the best narrators of dark tales, whose name refers to the canine guardian of the under world, did something as outrageous as this. While he was alive, he wrote what I consider to be one of the best songs to emerge from the Latin American rap movement. A song which reflects the revolutionary consciousness of Latin America and asks young people if they're willing to accept the challenge of changing the world.
