EDITORS’ NOTES

Kicking rhymes with the snarl and swagger of an old-school battle rapper, dropping beats that mix menace with melancholy, Papi Wilo isn’t your average reggaeton MC trying to cross over. A handful of tracks on Persiguiendo un Sueño may bump to the vintage dembow groove, but he saves his most ferocious performances for hypnotic bangers like “Freestyle 18.” Hitting you with a barrage of furious bars and raw drums, Persiguiendo un Sueño is the perfect fix for anyone looking for the bruising intensity of classic hip-hop street anthems, but Papi Wilo also flashes moments of low-key sweetness, especially on the woozy trap lullaby “Ella Quiere Volver.”
