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.

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

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.
