ABSTRACT
This essay examines how the duet Calle 13 uses food, satirical humor, and profane language in his lyrics as a rhetorical strategy to construct cultural and national imaginaries. It also discusses the role that Calle 13's alternative and urban music genre plays in providing a resistance tool against oppression, social inequality, and colonialism in the contemporary context of Puerto Rico.
