The Cacaman: Shittin' on the Industry is a music album by the rapper Álvaro Vega (Now known as Communion) consisting of parodies of popular songs like Crank Dat or Sexy Back with scatological lyrics; the record label of the album is Big $hit Records.
The album was released in 2007, with music videos released on MySpace and YouTube, three music videos were made, "NastyCrap" (parody of "SexyBack" by Justin Timberlake), "Crap Dat" (parody of "Crank Dat" by Soulja Boy) and "Ain't Got Much of a Smile" (an original song about his depression), which were taken down as of April 25th, 2008,and because of this, The Cacaman's songs and videos became harder to find with the years.
The Cacaman, birth name Álvaro Vega and now going by the rap name Communion, is a Latino rapper based out of Florida. In the mid to late 2000s he tried his hand at comedy music, mostly themed about scatological subject matter, though the song "Ain't Got Much of a Smile" was a more serious take on his personal life and depression at the time.
His career as a comedy musician was short-lived, however: in 2008 he made a blog post on his MySpace page explaining how he found Jesus through a copy of The Imitation of Christ and gave up on his former parody career, deleting all of his back catalogue and branding all secular forms of pop music as "satanic".
The album has a page on Amazon.com, but it's not available to listen to, the album can't be found in most websites.
