Hector Delgado is a Puerto Rican rapper, singer and record producer, formerly known by his stage names Héctor “El Father” and Hector “El Bambino”. After retirement, he obtained a degree in Theology at the Southern Methodist University and dedicated his life to preaching the Christian faith in his homeland of Puerto Rico. In his recent work as a preacher he has touched many lives, moving many rappers to follow in his footsteps including fellow batatas Tito el Bambino and Almighty. The threesome have changed the way rappers are viewed within Puerto Rico and beyond forever. He has also been prolific in the field of linguistics, coining terms like “calenturri” and “amensurri”, as well as phrases including “sácala, dale úsala” (which has seen widespread use in get-out-the-vote campaigns recently, as well as foreplay, and less so in the original sense of gangster violence). He announced his retirement in 2008, but his series of Farewell Concerts went until May 2010.
