What some of the critics are saying...
~ Jay Mulligan LSM CBS Radio
Tells the truth, the way it needs to be told. An anthem for change.
~ Multi Platinum producer Shawn McKenzie aka "Sir Scratch" (Madonna, Queen Latifah, O'Jays, TLC, etc.)
Pedro el Poeta, a native Nicaraguan, learned to speak English listening to rap and hip-hop while growing up in Washington, DC. I learned about rap listening to Pedro. He's a prolific poet and song writer, an extremely gifted artist equally adept in the studio or live on stage. Pedro is a producer's secret weapon - always performing at max whether he's recording something that he's already written, or spontaneously creating verbal magic.
~ Multi-Platinum Producer Lance Quinn ( Bon Jovi, Talking Heads, Star Wars and Other Galactic Funk, etc.)
As an Independent producer and communications consultant, I have worked with Pedro on projects that range from fun and pure entertainment to the political... Each time, Pedro has delivered unique performances that were the hit of the show... I personally and professionally hold Pedro in the highest regard and am sure that you will as well if you have the opportunity to work with him.

No stranger to the music scene, the talented Hip-Hop/Rap artist Pedro el Poeta sets in motion a compilation of beats and grooves with his latest release... Poeta’s spoken words are poetically infused with colorful instrumentation blends which give a cohesive and consistent sound. His voice is strong and rich and he reveals his abilities as an easy flowing rhymer. The language voiced throughout this collection is both English and Spanish, as listeners will hear on “El Problema.”
