Ugh.

I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

They've never really put their politics out there (at least not recently) that blatantly. And I don't believe them when they say it, I think it's what they say so that they can have access to the island and their and their families. Maybe that's me trying to justify the fact that I like their music so much.

I don't know about "always been open about it." From the various video clips that I've seen at Orishasthebest.com, there seems to be a "staying out of politics attitude in the group." Also, I've noticed that they are saying one thing in Cuba and another in the US. Compare the videos of Yotuel talking about the song "El Kilo" in the US and in Cuba -two very different interpretations where the explaination given in Cuba is clearly a BS Paquete. Given the struggle that Ruzzo and Yotuel had in Cuba as rappers, I have a hard time believeing that they are going to be infavor of castro's system. I'm convinced that the pro-castro comment was a CYA (Cover your ass) comment. If you notice it's the shortest answer in the interview. Why didn't Ruzzo go into it as he did about the Embargo, which he is clearly opposed to?

In any case this comment is still disappointing and nauseating.
