The Root Recommends: Yotuel Romero

The Latin Grammy-winning Cuban rapper is releasing a new solo album.


The rapper in the Cuban trio Orishas has embarked on new solo effort, but he's collaborating with some big names along the way.

Yotuel Romero recently released his newest single, "Rock & Roll Con Canchleta," with Puerto Rican rapper Tego Calderón. The single, with its mix of hip-hop, rock and conga, is available on iTunes. Look out for Romero's album Afrocuban-Punk later this year.
