CUBAN LINK


Cuban Link

Felix Delgado (born December 18, 1974), better known by his stage name Cuban Link, is a Cuban rapper. Delgado was born in Havana, Cuba in 1974. He and his family emigrated to the United States in 1980 and settled in the Morrisania section of the South Bronx neighborhood of New York City. When Delgado was growing up, hip hop music was rising in popularity in his neighborhood. Delgado took on stage name Cuban Link and associated with fellow rappers Big Pun and Triple Seis in a trio under names Caribbean Connection and Full-A-Clips. Cuban Link and Big Pun both made guest performances on The Beatnuts' single "Off the Books" in 1997. They joined the local rap group Terror Squad, and Link performed on the track "Tell Me What You Want" from the group's self-titled debut album. Link previously did guest appearances on Squad members' solo albums: Big Pun's Capital Punishment and Fat Joe's Don Cartagena. Cuban Link was signed to Atlantic Records and began recording his debut album 24K. Big Pun died on February 7, 2000, so Link wrote single "Flowers for the Dead" in Pun's honor. However, without Pun's mediation, contract disputes between Fat Joe and Cuban Link and leaks prevented the release of 24K. In April 2001, during an album release party for Angie Martinez at Jimmy's Bronx Cafe, Cuban Link got in an altercation and had his face slashed when he was trying to break up a fight between Fat Joe and rapper Sunkiss. By that time, Cuban Link left Terror Squad. He released a mixtape, Broken Chains, in 2003 put together by DrenStarr & Roy P. Perez . He joined independent label Men of Business in 2005 and released album Chain Reaction. It included singles "Sugar Daddy" (featuring Mýa) and "Scandalous" (featuring Don Omar) and combined some reggaeton sound as well.
