EDITORS’ NOTES

Even his imprisonment wasn't going to hold down Puerto Rican rapper Tempo. His Spanish lyrics are tough and defiant throughout Free Tempo, with "Mantenlo Gangster" proclaiming his ties to the underworld and "Corran Por Sus Vidas" threatening revenge on those who set him up. Musically, the album takes in everything from sampled sirens on "25 de Septiembre" to orchestration on "Porque Soy Tempo." On the English title track, Fat Joe and Barrington Levy call for Tempo's freedom to an easy, head-nodding groove.
