Yea...I figured it was Puerto Rico because that's where Daddy Yankee is from. I found this explanation on the internet: He is sometimes referred to as El Cangri (shortened form of Cangrimán, which in turn is a corruption of the English word congressman, and used in Puerto Rico to describe a brazenly powerful or influential person in the neighborhood).
