Many of us in the 305 make fun of Hialeah. And why wouldn't we? The addresses make no sense, no one speaks English, and it feels like you need a passport just to enter the city limits.
Curiously, though, a lot of cool stuff comes out of Hialeah too. Like Hialeah Fest, which takes place in, ahem, Little Haiti at Churchill's Pub.
Another example: Satirical singer-songwriter Havy Rodriguez's new parody song about illegal cable and other weird shit in the Independent Republic of Hialeah. It's called "Comprate una casa en Hialeah."
See the cut for Havy's video and a full English translation of the lyrics.
