Who is Nicky Jam?
Nick Rivera Caminero was born in Lawrence, Massachusetts USA, on 17 March 1981, meaning that his zodiac sign’s Pisces. He’s probably known best for his hit songs “El Amante”, “Hasta el Amanecer” and “Travesuras”, while he’s also known for his collaboration with many popular singers and rappers, such as Anuel AA, Ozuna and Daddy Yankee.
Nicky was raised in Lawrence by his Puerto Rican father and Dominican mother. He was around eight years old when he became interested in rap, and a fan of LL Cool J, and Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch. When Nicky was 10, the family moved to San Juan, Puerto Rico; he later revealed that his father was involved in a drug case and escaped bail, leading to the family’s relocation.
It wasn’t easy for Nicky to find friends in Puerto Rico, as he spoke no Spanish when they arrived there, but he succeeded after his peers became interested in his rap verses. He was 11 when he started working at a grocery store; a customer heard him rapping, and invited him to record a song. Nicky was 14 when his debut extended play (EP) was released, entitled “Distinto a los Demas”; he tried cocaine for the first time in the following year.
He steadily became popular in Puerto Rico, and then met his role model Daddy Yankee, with whom he then formed the duo Los Cangris, and released songs “Guayando”, “Donde Estan Las Gatas” and “En la Cama”. In 2001 and 2004, Nicky released his solo albums “Haciendo Escante” and “Vida Escante”, respectively.
As Nicky became addicted to both cocaine and alcohol, he and Daddy Yankee began dissing each other, and their duo fell apart in 2004; Nicky then fell into depression, and gained a lot of weight, reaching 300lbs (135kgs). The year 2007 saw him move to Medellin, Colombia wanting to stop using drugs and create new music; he was able to stop drinking and using cocaine, but only for a short while, as he overdosed in 2010 and nearly died.
It was the near-death experience that led Nicky to entirely stop using drugs; he began leading a healthier life, and lost around 100lbs (45kgs). He met Daddy Yankee on a plane in 2014, after the two hadn’t seen each other for around 10 years; the rappers apologized to each other, and began touring together in the same year.
Nicky’s hit song “Travesuras” was released on 27 January 2014, and reached the top 10 on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs Chart; the following year saw Nicky collaborate with famous Spanish singer-songwriter Enrique Iglesias on the single “El Perdon”, which won Nicky a Latin Grammy for Best Urban Performance. His album “Fenix” was released on 20 January 2017, and on 2 March 2018, Nicky and J Balvin released their single “X”, which reached #41 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart.
Most recently, on 3 February 2022, Nicky embarked on his Infinity Tour.
He’s also a bit of an actor, having made his debut appearance in the 2017 action thriller movie “XXX: Return of Xander Cage”, while the same year saw him appear in the drama film “The Keys of Christmas”. In 2018, Nicky starred in the biographical series “Nicky Jam: El Ganador”, which follows his childhood, struggles with drugs and success in the rap industry. He’s had only two other roles: Nicky played Lorenzo ‘Zway-Lo’ Rodriguez in the 2020 crime action movie “Bad Boys for Life”, and voiced Butch Cat in the 2021 computer animated comedy movie “Tom & Jerry”.
