2. Los Capos de Mexico - "El Cabrón"
This slow banger by Los Capos de Mexico is not so much about the glory of the bandit but the glory of the user and it is oh so danceable. Even the fake AK breaking the pace is forgivable. I'd like to see some pointy-boot dancing to this!
1. Zayda y Los Culpables - "Atrévete"
Here's an interesting one. Zayda and her merry band of "guilty men" were only guilty of grupera love songs and dancing needs. But somehow, she managed to piss some cartel off enough to be gunned down after a show on November 30, 2007. When the gunmen failed to "seal the deal" that night, they burst into the hospital where she was being treated and executed her in bed.
Nice. And your mom threw a hissy-fit when you came home with gangster rap records back in '94.
