The term "cangri" spawned from the Puerto Rican term "cangriman" which was derived from "congressman". "Cangriman" was used to denote someone who was important and well presented, such as a congressman. It eventually evolved into the shortened "cangri" which has become more widely used since its presence in Reggaeton.
