About Hector El Father
Hector El Father didn't have a reputation for ... well, moderation in his heyday as one half of pioneering reggaeton duo Hector & Tito. As a bambino, he was part of the first wave of reggaeton coming out of Puerto Rico, with all the rawness and hedonism that implies. The group was the first to sell out a stadium in Puerto Rico, and their ensuing success took them around the globe. After they called it quits in 2005, Hector renamed himself "El Father" and signed with Roc-A-Fella. However, by 2008 he had experienced a change of heart about his profession and the dissolute life it encouraged; photos emerged of his baptism and conversion to devout Christianity. To fulfill his contractual obligation he released El Juicio Final, an album that details his lack of fulfillment in the midst of his success and his subsequent turn to God. He's scheduled to retire from music in fall 2008.
