A caco is pretty much the Puerto Rican
cousin of the British townie
or the North American wanksta
Their name comes from the greek "cacos" meaning "bad" or "low quality"(Example: cacophony) and was a term in used in Spain referring to a low-life. The female counterpart is called "caca" humorously enough.
Cacos listen to reggaeton
in the same way that wankstas
listen to gangsta rap
listen to garage
but they will also listen to anything resembling the sound(i.e. no talent music about gangs,hos and tha ghetto).
Caco fashion generally consists of mostly athletic clothes of known brands or anything that makes them look like they're rich(which is hypocritical considering their inverse snob ghetto
Males: brightly colored basketball jerseys wife beaters or long white T-shirts, baggy denim shorts, expensive reebok
sneakers(usually white) or wheat colored Timberland
boots and a white or 2 toned baseball cap. When cacos want to dress fine on a night out, they will wear imitation designer jeans, horizontal striped polo shirts and a pair of pointy tan colored shoes(puerto rican fence hoppers
). Preferred hairstyles are usually crew cuts which makes them looks like clones of each other or corn rows
. And of course no "self respecting" caco would be complete without a shit-load of gold jewelry mainly thick heavy gold chains with a huge medallion or cross, heavy gold rings and of course an imitation "blinged out" diamond earrings.
Females: Are J-Lo
wannabes so they will fashion themselves after her gaining a look that makes them look like cheap ghetto whores. Generallly they will wear tight "booty" jeans showing they're panties or tight trackpants or with a shiny writing on the ass or a slutty bright colored miniskirt, tight brightly colored tops with cheap floral designs or shiny letterings on them and high-heeled shoes or sandals. Like their male counterparts they will also sport a fairly large amount of bling
Cacos are extremely fond of riced-out
jap cars. Their choice rides are usually Mitsubishi Mirage Technica
s or Honnda Civic
s which they will trick-out with fart exhausts, body kits, chrome rims, tacky stickers and of course a bass
sound system to blast their infernal reggaeton
music to innocent citizens trying to get a good night's sleep. They also like to ride ATV
s, pocket bike
s or moped
s with radios instaled.
Cacos do not get along with "roqueros"(rocker
s) because they stereotype them as devil-worshippers. Despite the fact that they go to church cacos break all 10 commandments(stealing, murdering,adultery and of course gay prison sex) whenever they can so their hatred towards roqueros is hypocritical.
In short cacos are annoying scum and give Puerto Ricans a bad name.
