Hip Hop: 3 Dueños - Cyrano (La Mala Vida)

This is the theme tune of Venezuelan director Alberto Arvelo's movie "Cyrano Fernandez", a contemporary take on the classic tale Cyrano de Bergerac set in the barrios of Caracas.
Edgar Ramirez, who stars in the title role, is perhaps Venezuela's most successful screen export, acting opposite Keira Knightly in "Domino" and Matt Damon in "The Bourne Ultimatum".
Instead of a big nose, this Cyrano has a nasty scar across his face and wields a pistol rather than a duelling sword, but he's as unlucky in love as his French predecessor.
"La Mala Vida" is a banging track by Tres Duenos, the latest collaboration between DJ Trece, Budu and Niggah, formerly operating under the monicker Vagos Y Maleantes.
