Neo-Reconquista is well produced, and presents Boogát as an artist who has long moved past being known simply as a “Spanish-language rapper from Quebec” and who has committed to a more textured artistic evolution and genre-agnostic growth."

The Boogát experience is usually a non-stop party, and “El Lobo” fully meets those expectations. But even the best party can’t shield you from the harshness of life sometimes. “El Lobo” demonstrates that there’s more to Boogát than just a good time."
