| Starts Off Strong, But Gets a Bit Slow In Later Episodes
The series starts strong, with Darkiel playing a very convincing young Nicky Jam. The cast is made up of an assortment of characters from reggaeton: Miky Woodz, Jon Z, Juhn, De La Ghetto, Ñengo Flow, etc. All who were surprisingly good actors.

Camera work is solid and they jump to an assortment of interesting places like Santo Domingo, DR, Medellin, Colombia, NYC, New York, etc. Lot's of time is spent in Puerto Rico, where the bulk of the most interesting scenes were shot.

The first 3 episodes were the most exciting. Nicky Jam and Daddy Yankee are being harassed and basically hunted by this dangerous gangster named Cuti. Things get so bad Nicky and Daddy run to NYC just to get away from the stress.

I found the relationship between Nicky and Daddy to be the opposite that I expected, at least as portrayed in this series. It seemed like Nicky had the power, he would snatch the phone out of Daddy's hands, interrupt him during conversations and meetings. It just seemed like Daddy would be the Big Boss and that is not the impression I received.

I found the parts from Nicky's childhood in Massachusetts necessary, but super depressing. As the episodes continue, they focus more on a adult Nicky and his battle with drugs, love life and path to success and sobriety. They still show flash backs of his youth, but I found myself yearning for the earlier episodes with Darkiel running around Puerto Rico getting into a little of everything.

Conclusion: Pretty solid series, good acting, interesting locations, although I found myself getting a little bored in the later episodes. If you are a fan of the reggaeton genre, then this is a must see.
