So who is Farruko anyway? Well, we were curious ourselves, so we decided to investigate. Here are a few things we found out that you may want to know about the rising Latin Trap star. 

26-year-old Carlos Efren Reyes Rosado was born in Puerto Rico and began his career in music in 2009. He dropped his first album, El Talento Del Bloque, in 2010, and featured a guest appearance by the iconic Puerto Rican singer/songwriter Jose Feliciano on the track "Su hija me gusta." 

According to Wikipedia, he credits MySpace with helping to jumpstart his career. He's gained quite a bit of fame working alongside some of the Latin music scene's biggest names, including Bad Bunny, J Alvarez, Daddy Yankee, and more. As Latin trap and reggaeton becomes more popular, many English-speaking hip hop stars are jumping  at the chance to collaborate with Farruko, Bunny, and many others, all in an effort to bring fans together.

And if you were wondering why his stage name reminds you of 5th grade, that's because he says it's inspired by Egyptian pharaohs.
