Both El Fother and Rob $tone are considered to be two of the most influential urban artists of the moment. It is not surprising therefore that for some time there was a demand in the industry that longed to see them working together. Republic Network detected this need and was able to solve it, creating and financing a collaborative project. And thus, the single “Santos” was born.
El Fother is one of the main faces and a fundamental pillar of the Dominican urban scene. The Santo Domingo artist is a true all-rounder in music, be it in dembow, hip hop or trap rhythms.
On his side, Rob $tone is one of the West Coast’s most acclaimed rap artists. From San Diego, his songs combine freshness and tributes to his powerful Californian influences at the same time. A mix that makes him a true hitmaker.
It may be that both artists are separated by language and a different culture, but there is something much more important that unites them: their lifestyles. The street is both of the artists’ natural environment and they show it in “Santos“. A song produced by Richie Louie and Young Purpp in which there are no double readings or subtleties; a track as raw, honest and direct as its authors. In other words, the perfect combination of El Fother and Rob $tone’s styles.
Besides, the video clip deserves a special mention. It was recorded in La 42 de Capotillo, one of the most conflictive neighborhoods in Santo Domingo.
