Open Post: Hosted By Rapuela (AKA Gloria Estefan’s Mother)

September 3, 2016 / Posted by:

The Estefan family is full of talent. There’s consummate performer Gloria Estefan and her husband Emilio (he’s a producer who was in Miami Sound Machine with her), their daughter Emily Estefan is a singer-songwriter, and now there’s a new Estefan-related, white-hot hip-hop talent emerging from the underground to slay us with her lyrical flow.

Bob your heads to the stylings of Gloria Fajardo aka Rapuela, aka Gloria Estefan’s mom! (via Popsugar)

The Return of #Rapuela ? El regreso de #Rapuela ❤️ ???

That’s granddaughter Emily beat-boxing for her nana. Rapuela ain’t a one-hit wonder, either.

I don’t speak a lick of Spanish. Michael K., a translation?

You can get into more of #Rapuela on Emily’s Instagram. She’s got enough songs for a mixtape. I expect her to feature on several artists’ tracks in the new year, culminating with a two-hour spoken word/rap performance at the VMAs with the theme being “me.” Britney, make sure you go on before Rapuela this time.
