No Hay Manera
Label: Univision Music
It wouldn't be hard to argue that Akwid's "No Hay Manera" kick-started the urban regional phenomenon. The song tore up the charts and within a year Proyecto Akwid had gone platinum with almost no air play. Radio didn't know what to do with the duo, but fans rightly revered them for solid rhymes and the innovative gangsta-banda songs like "Pobre Compa."
