Black Point
Black Point is originally from Dominican Republic. His song Watagatapitusberry was remixed by international star Pitbull together with Lil Jon, El Cata and Del Patio. Black Point utilized social networks like YouTube to get his name out to his audience with an average of 100,000 hits.

Black Point started singing at a very early age. His uncle made him listen to various genres of music from rap from English artists, to Campamento Revolucionario and Tribu Rebelde. Listening to all these songs, his interest for music grew and he started rapping in Spanish.
