The NarcoCorridos ( Mexico Drug Ballads )

A Narcocorrido (Drug Ballad) is a type of Mexican music and song tradition which evolved out of the norteño folk corrido tradition. This type of music is heard on both sides of the US–Mexican border. It uses a danceable, accordion-based polka as a rhythmic base. The first corridos that focus on drug smugglers—the narco comes from "narcotics"—have been dated to the 1930s. Early corridos (non-narco) go back as far to the Mexican Revolution of 1910, telling the stories of revolutionary fighters. Other music critics have compared narcocorrido music to gangster rap.

Narcocorrido lyrics refer to particular events and include real dates and places.[2] The lyrics tend to speak approvingly of illegal criminal activities such as murder, torture, racketeering, extortion, drug smuggling, illegal immigration, and sometimes political protest due to government corruption.

      Their situation is not much different from Italy's Sicilian mafia back in the 50s. Corruption is Increasing the problem beyond bearable limits.

      Billions are being made off their drug trafficking and obviously some government officials really high up there are partaking in it.

  • Mexico's violence can all be tied to politics. When Calderon got into power he decided it would be wise to escalate the conflict against the cartels. Before Calderon was in power Mexico had its share of problems, but large scale violence was off the table. The drugs were getting out, the cash was getting in. The police were able to be paid off, and no one really had any problems. This drug war has been a political nightmare for Calderon and his party, and I think he knows that, but guys lik More..
