Maicol (Miguel Muñoz) y Manuel (Manuel A. Pérez) is a reggaeton duo from Puerto Rico. They have their origins in the first wave of reggaeton artists as early as 1991. The duo have released countless songs on many various artists compilations. In addition they have recorded and released albums such as Yakaleo and El Desquite.

Controversy

A bit of controversy arose in 2006 when Hector El Father's single, "El Telefono", was released from his album "Los Rompe Discotekas". The song, which featured Wisin & Yandel, became an instant hit but soon after it was released, a much older song began floating around the net which featured the same chorus. The song was the original "El Telefono", which was released by Maicol y Manuel many years ago.[1] This became a popular topic among reggaeton forums during the year, as Hector had a history of "copying" other artist's songs in his own without proper credit. It was not known, however, if Maicol y Maunel had sold the rights to the song or if Hector had used it without permission. A popular track was soon released which was recorded in the same matter as a diss record Cam'ron released towards Jay-Z. The track showed various verses that Hector has used from other artists, as well as the original verses sung or rapped by their original artists. The song was titled "Hector El Copion".Some of the artists from the track Hector El Copion are Eddie Dee, & O.G.M. & Oakley. After a while of controversy, Maicol y Manuel, along with Alberto Stylee and Nano MC, released a version of "El Telefono", with a much more modern beat than the original, dissing Hector and Wisin & Yandel. Few Reggaeton fans claimed that this version was much better than Hector's. However, Hector's supporters say that even if he really did 'steal' the songs, he composed better version of the songs, seeing as how practically every song became a hit. Since then Maicol and Manuel temporarily split and started developing music as solo artists. Maicol is currently signed to Diririri Business record label, while Manuel is independent at Yakaleo music. Currently they are staging a comeback together releasing many underground songs. However their style is not the same as the years of 2002 and 2003. With Dj Blass "El Sandunguero", they made a more underground style of reggaeton, different from what was playing in the radios.
