Daddy Yankee VS Don Omar

Everybody who is a fan of Daddy Yankee has heard the song GangstaZone which Yankee did with his friend Snoop Dog. But now Daddy Yankee wanted to add something to the song, so he did a little remix to criticize the reggaeton artist Don Omar.

The remix of the song has artist like Hector El Father, Yomo, Angel Doze, Arcangel y de La Guetto. This remix has a very clear message and that is that Don Omar is not the king of reggaeton. In other words Daddy Yankee says he is better at what he does then Don Omar.

Daddy Yankee didn't throw this song out just because he felt like it. He made this song because Don Omar recently made a song criticizing Daddy Yankee, so Yankee didn't stay with his hands crossed and made the remix.

My question is when is the battle going to end?
