Why do Nicky Jam and some other reggaetón artists not pronounce the letter "s" sometimes For example they will say "nada mas" but it will just be pronounced "nada ma" or instead of "me gusta" it's pronounced "me guta" At the end of most of Nicky Jam's songs he says "La Industria Inc" but the way he says it sounds like "La Indutria Inc" Can someone explain to me why this is?

It's not to do with being cool, that's just how people speak in certain Spanish-speaking places. Dropping the 's' happens in lots of different places.

It doesn't have like a justified reason. They just think it's "cool" or to make their accent notice.

I agree Paul. Certain Spanish accents, specially in the Caribbean and in the north of South America, drop some "s", don't pronounce final consonants and put some stress in certain syllables. For example: verdad -> verdá, bus -> bú
