Miami, FL–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–September 4, 2007. At this historical moment when Cuba’s future is uncertain Cuban-American singer songwriter and hip hop sensation GQ, releases Un Monstruo Controla Mi Isla (My Island is Controlled by a Monster), inspired by the legacy his grandfather left him. In this song, GQ describes the suffering of Cubans, as well as illustrates the cruelty under which the dictator Fidel Castro has dominated this country for over 50 years.

GQ (stands for God’s Quest), was born in Los Angeles, but at a young age moved to Miami. It was in the streets of this city where he reconnected with his Cuban heritage and the Latin flavor.

Today GQ is a clear example of the new generation of Hispanics who reside in the US, a generation that has not lost interest in the legacy that their parents have left them.

GQ’s skills and singular talent have been recognized by many artists like Jon Secada, who was the first to take GQ into a studio, to record his first demo. Alejandro Sanz was also amazed with GQ’s ability, and requested him to create a rap to be part of Try to Save your Song, one of the tracks included in the multi – Latin Grammy album No es lo Mismo by the Spanish icon.

In Un Monstruo Controla Mi Isla, GQ denounces many of the horrors that occur, day to day, to those who live under Castro’s regime.

In one of his rhymes, GQ sings in Spanish phrases as “Quiero tocar a mi gente como Celia Cruz te tocó a ti” (I want to reach my people like Celia Cruz did) “como siendo la voz de esta generación me tocó a mí” (like being the voice of my generation was destined for me).

When you listen to a couple of his songs, you will understand that he is definitively the voice of his generation, one formed by young people who speak the language of hip hop.
