While Mexican country music has long lauded drug traffickers in cowboy hats, their songs have recently turned deadly due to a raging narco war. The “narco corrido” ballads of Mexican drug cartel singers have been the target of assassinations and assaults by hitmen as a result of their lyrics siding with rival gangs. As a band manager for five Tijuana-based ensembles, “Narco corridos are too risky to sing these days,” he claimed.
After years of performing for drug gangs, “my lads have been beaten up and had guns put to their heads, all kinds of threats for choosing the incorrect song,” he added, dressed in black cowboy hats, boots and trousers. Gunmen in the Gulf Cartel’s stronghold of Reynosa, Mexico, killed popular singer Valentin “Golden Rooster” Elizalde last year for singing “To My Enemies,” the famed narco corridor.
On the surface, the song appears to be an attack on the cartel’s private force, The Zetas.
Small narco corridos bands are going out of business because they are afraid of turning up at narco parties, which is the best way to make money as a musician on the US-Mexico border.
