Andrés Calamaro said that Argentines “don’t even care how much the ticket goes up” and supported the rag picker who attacked Minister Caputo in Cosquín

The controversial phrase that Dylan León Masa, better known as Dillom, launched at the Cosquín Rock festival when indicating that the Minister of Economy, Luis Caputo, must be “killed in the Plaza”, continues to widen the rift.

Now, it was Andrés Calamaro who supported the young ragpicker, saying that “he is the best current artist” and that “he has the right to say what he wants.” After several spicy posts, the former Abuelo de la Nada also stated that Argentines “don’t even care how much the ticket goes up.”

“Let’s not pretend that we care about who wins the elections, if they killed John Lennon or who won the Taylor Pfizer super bowl last night, or how much the bus ticket goes up,” Calamaro questioned after several posts critical of his defense of the rapper.

It all started on Saturday at Dillom’s presentation. There, the trapper performed the song from Las Manos de Filippi, which Bersuit Vergarabat later popularized with his censored version of “Sr. Cobranza.”

But, the young artist reverted it to current times: “I move here, I move there, they have to kill Caputo in the square,” he changed.

In the original song released in the mid-90s, there was a deep criticism of Carlos Menem’s management and, in the section that Dillom used, it pointed directly towards Domingo Cavallo after his first stint at the Ministry of Economy. “Norma Plá has to kill Cavallo,” was the phrase that completed the first stanza of the original.

The truth is that after several conflicting positions, especially on networks, the one who came out to support the stop was Andrés Calamaro, who posted on X: “Dillom is the best current artist and the best as a person. He is Hip Hop and Rock, He has to say what he wants, like it and offend. Plus he’s 22 years old. He has to say what he wants without thinking, let whatever come out,” he said.

The creator of “A Thousand Hours” defended “freedom of expression” and continued with a thread of posts defending Dillom.

“We know that offending the government is not a true act of rebellion; the rock musicians did not even bother the armed forces, those of us who received mistreatment were from the public and arrived in groups. But Dillom has a lot of aesthetic, conceptual and philosophical content. Rock,” Calamaro continued.

“Rock absorbs and offers: Blues, reggae, pop, Latin vibes and hip hop. Beastie Boys and RUN DMC was 40 years ago, Nobody has to show the public what it IS. To the rock public it is They chamullate easily with a rock attitude, speaking badly and making soft music,” El Salmón posted.

Dillom rose to fame in 2018 with the song Drippin, which he produced. Then followed Superglue, together with the musician Ill Quentín, and his session with Bizarrap. Even last year, the City Government distinguished him as an “Outstanding Cultural Personality.”

Complaint against Dillom

Judicial sources confirmed that lawyer Jorge Monastersky filed a criminal complaint against the ragpicker for his “incitement” at the Córdoba popular festival.

“The statements are extremely serious. “Freedom of expression has limits and they are clear, the law, the illegality, the criminal type that I understand was established and must be investigated by the judiciary,” he said in a writing.

And he added: “It seems from various sayings that with crystal clarity they incite violence, they would be seeking an individual to attack the life of a public official,” due to the mention of the death of “Toto” Caputo in the lyrics.
