Ay Chico (Lengua Afuera)
Label: The Orchard
Before Pitbull became a symbol of the EDM/pop crossover, he was a Little Havana thug who specialized in Spanglish strip-club anthems. But he's always been a singles artist, which is why this compilation spanning his first three albums may be the best snapshot of his early career. It's missing one or two hits, particularly "Dime" with Ken-Y, but everything else is here, from goofy samples of the B-52s' "Rock Lobster" ("Hey You Girl") and Debbie Deb's "When I Hear Music" ("Fuego"), to hardcore crunk mashers like "Dammit Man" and "Lemonade Delight."
