After the premiere of his heartfelt video “El Sitio” (The Spot), urban Latin’s most iconic rapper launches another moving video for the song “Robin Hood”. It is the next chapter in a special series of music videos being launched from the mixtape, ‘El Original Gallo del País – O.G. El Mixtape‘ (The Original Rooster of the Country – OG The Mixtape), which was launched in June and continues to garner praise among critics and fans alike.
Through this video series, Tego Calderón wants to show a different side of Puerto Rico, the more authentic part of the island. The location was in the very traditional area of Piñones in the neighborhoods ‘El Indio’ (The Indian) and ‘El Chorro’, which reflect the island’s ancestry. The video was directed by Kacho Santiago Lopez, cinematography done by ‘Chago’ Benet, and produced by Tristana Robles for Zapatero Films.
Tego Calderón was very involved with the director in the creation of the concept for “Robin Hood”and had the final input for the recording, location and treatment of the video. The video “Robin Hood” contains a preview of the song “Si Yo Fuera Usted” (If I Were You), which belongs to the genre known as “bomba”, folkloric music native to his homeland Puerto Rico. The video focuses on several sociopolitical and economic themes such as the immigration of Dominicans to Puerto Rico.
