El Chombo is best known by non-Spanish speaking audiences for the hit nonsense pseudo-Spanish song "Chacarron Macarron", which has become an Internet phenomenon, and because of its mumbling vocals and nonsensical "lyrics" he earned the nickname El Mudo.
His major local hits under his own name include Kung Fu, El Gato Volador, and Chacarron Macarron (as El Chombo). Rodney created an EP called Macarron Chacarron containing many mixes of his hits, which is available on iTunes. An excerpt from his song is also the track to the video "retarded running horse", which has over 58 million views and has spawned countless copies and versions.
As a producer, he is best known for producing Lorna's 2003 worldwide hit Papi chulo... (te traigo el mmmm...), which served as an introduction to reggaeton for many Europeans, reaching number one in the French charts with top ten appearances in Greece, Italy, India, Turkey, and the Netherlands.
