Tego Calderon has dropped the bling

Tego Calderon has dropped the bling. A few weeks ago, after much soul searching, the Puerto Rican rapper took off his trademark chains, rings, diamonds and anything remotely ostentatious and continued about the business of making music as he has always done: quietly and with little fanfare.

Indeed, the change in accoutrements suits Calderon well. The rapper has cultivated an image as the deep thinker and top lyricist of the reggaeton movement, a notion supported by his recent trip to Sierra Leone to film a documentary on the diamond mining business. Calderon returned a changed man, acutely aware of hardship and more determined than ever to lose that bling.
