Description

Adriel Favela y Javier Rosas are two of Mexico's rising stars within the narcocorrido genre. Just like American gangster rap--and heavy metal before that--the music, which centers around stories of cartel life, has drawn plenty of hand-wringing from the authorities. It's also spawned real-life violence. Back in 2015, Rosas was the victim of a drive-by shooting in Culiacan, home to the Sinaloa drug cartel. Despite taking a number of bullets, he survived and is now on tour with Favela. Together, they teamed on a 2018 hit, "La Escuela No Me Gusto," which combines elements of banda, furious and infectious Spanish guitar picking and gangland lyrics.
