Hey Deuxelle, What your looking for is a N.Y. accent, with a slight spanish accent, there is no such thing as puertorican, mexican accent, because all hispanic`s sound the same when speaking in english, so ignore the ignorance of the world, & go and learn what you need to know( jou kno ), & for the world, it`s time to stop the hate, it`s unnecessary !!!!!!!
