Reports Of My Death Have Been Greatly Corroborated: Mexican Singer Killed After Denying Death Rumor

Mexican country singer Sergio Vega, known as “El Shaka,” performed “narcocorridos” — songs that celebrated the lives of drug lords. Singing narcocorridos can anger rival drug gangs and result in such killings.

Vegas was shot in his red Cadillac after appearing on a radio station to deny the rumor of his death. Vegas, 40, told the station “It’s happened to me for years now, someone tells a radio station or a newspaper I’ve been killed, or suffered an accident. And then I have to call my dear mum, who has heart trouble, to reassure her.”

It is another example of the downward spiral in Mexican society as gangs engage in wanton violence. Mexico appears to be going through a period much like our own Prohibition period in places like Chicago where violence and corruption were rampant.

  1. Oh good. Let’s invite 10 million or so of these sorts of folks to our country.

  2. Man-o-Manischewitz, that freekin video made me want to shoot him. I guess he should have invested in Vitamin H20 and moved to LA.

  3. I’ve never been shot in the Cadillac, but I did fracture it once.

    Hurt like Hell.

  4. Dredd,

    Thanks for making me snort my coffee this morning.

    At least it was brewed and not served in lines.

  5. Mexico appears to be going through a period much like our own Prohibition period in places like Chicago where violence and corruption were rampant.

    That sort of implies that the United States has put the political corruption of drugs behind her. I think it’s more likely that Mexico is showing our future, not our past, should the War on Drugs be continued.
