Cruz Cafuné, one of the biggest acts in the Latin speaking world, released his 3rd and most ambitious album this year and the reception is absolute fire. With a 10 million stream spread per song over the entire album on spotify, this 21 track piece is taking the industry by storm across audiences. With an urban street attitude and an allegorical tone to albums tracks and message, the once philosophy major has unleashed a full thread of pounding steps, popping beats, and preach worthy rhymes.
“Me Muevo Con Dios,” translated as “I Move with God,” is a showcase of eclectic storytelling by the rising Spanish talent, Cruz Cafuné. With its balanced mix of fluid lyrical prowess, thematic consistency, and bold experimentation, the album seizes the listener’s attention from start to finish.
Cruz Cafuné’s sonic universe, as portrayed in this album, is a fascinating fusion of multiple influences. One can spot elements of Latin hip-hop, traditional salsa, Jamaican rhythm, and contemporary trap beats woven together into a cohesive narrative. This compelling stylistic blend draws the listener into the unique cultural tapestry that Cafuné has spun.
One of the standout tracks of the album Corintios 13:12 includes a full verse as a back and forth dialogue with Westside Gunn. A definite demonstration of Cafuné’s versatility, you can feel the styles effortlessly crossing a bridge between the hip-hop scenes of Tenerife and Buffalo. The track sees the artists trading war stories, getaway schemes and the overall love of the game that the young artists are in. Lifting its title from the Bible, the track properly mirrors the moral of that verse which talks about the timelessness of love.
What is absolutely spectacular about Cruz’s piece is its ability to remain mysterious all while maintaining a straight urban beat that normally leaves little space for godly morals. In “Dios #1”, “Dios primero, Ice-o-lator, control de crucero,” and “Woh, Dios primero, Ice-o-lator, control de crucero,” Cafuné is not afraid to delve into complex themes and ideas, and his lyricism is both relatable and profound.
The production across the album is top-notch, providing the perfect backdrop for Cafuné’s storytelling. The beats vary from song to song, moving fluidly from laid-back and contemplative to high-energy and intense. This dynamic variety ensures that the album never becomes monotonous and keeps the listener engaged throughout.
However, the album doesn’t shy away from vulnerability either. In several instances, Cafuné reflects on personal and societal issues, grounding his lyrical flights in tangible reality. In “Sangre Y Fe” Cruz delves into a memory from 2014 when he and his friends were broke, indicating how far he has come. With a sense of gratitude and disbelief at the trajectory of his career, from almost quitting rapping to inspiring other young people. He also speaks about his absolute vision of independence, contrasting himself with those who rely on others for success. His ability to intertwine grand themes with intimate narratives sets him apart and adds depth to his music.
Cruz Cafuné’s “Me Muevo Con Dios” is more than an album; it’s a journey through various soundscapes, themes, and emotions. It pushes the boundaries of what contemporary hip-hop can sound like, marking Cafuné as an artist to watch in the genre. Whether you’re a longtime hip-hop fan or new to the genre, “Me Muevo Con Dios” is an album that should be on the top of your ‘to explore” list.
