Rapper and singer Cazzu made a name for herself in her native Argentina with her provocative anthems of female empowerment and boosted the country's Latin Trap scene with collaborators like Khea and Bad Bunny on the single "Loca" and her own 2020 EP, Bonus Trap.
Born in Ledesma, Argentina, Cazzu (aka Julieta Cazzucheli) grew up influenced by her musician father but studied cinematography and graphic design before starting out as a cumbia singer. She soon found herself gravitating toward the country's urban scene and embraced a mix of Latin and R&B on her debut album, 2017's Maldades. The following year, Cazzu issued a number of singles and collaborations with the likes of Negro Fino, Lowlight, and Dellafuente, grounding herself further in the trap scene. By 2019 she had fully embraced reggaetón, hip-hop, and trap with the release of her sophomore album, Error 93. The effort saw her propelled as one of the leading lights of urban music in Argentina, while she used the platform to highlight inequality and push her message of female empowerment. The following year saw her teaming up with the likes of Tainy and Sean Paul on the single "Lento,' while also issuing the EP Bonus Trap. ~ Rich Wilson
