The word Cangri, like many of the urban terms, derive from English. This word for example comes from “Congressman“, which in Spanish means “Congressman“, but nevertheless, the meaning of Cangri is boss, the one who commands or “the one who leads”.

This word that was coined by Reggaetón, is not in any dictionary, so its use has not been authorized by the authorities of the Spanish language, however, due to the influence of urban music, its use is increasingly widespread.
