Cartel de Santa – Ya no van

Cartel de Santa is one of Mexico’s top hip-hop groups. The video is framed by clips from then president Felipe Calderón speaking about a violent act attributed to Miguel Angel Treviño, the Zetas cartel leader who was arrested just recently.

They are appearing on August 9 at a Music festival in Monterrey.


Akwid – No Hay Manera

Cool video of a great song by Mexican-American hip-hop band Akwid. The combination of traditional norteño instrumentation and vocal style with the hip-hop beat is smart and unique. Sorry about the ad at the beginning, but I promise it’s worth it.
