What The Hell??? Mexican Drug Cartel Murks Singer The Day After Dispelling Death Rumors

- By Bossip Staff

The death of Sergio Vega this weekend has shed light on a genre of music more dangerous than gangster rap… SMH

Hours after a famed Mexican musician told fans he was very much alive – someone killed him.

Sergio Vega, a singer known for songs about Mexico’s drug wars, was shot dead on his way to perform a concert in Mexico Saturday, the BBC reports.

Vega, 40, performed under the name “El Shaka” and rose to fame for his catalogue of “narcocorridos,” songs that celebrate the culture of Mexico’s drug cartels.

Musicians who sing these songs have often become targets of warring drug gangs, and at least seven have been killed in the past three years, the BBC reports.

Vega spoke Saturday to the website La Oreja to deny rumors he had been murdered, Sky News reports.

“It’s happened to me for years now, someone tells a radio station or a newspaper I’ve been killed, or suffered an accident,” Vega said. “And then I have to call my dear mum, who has heart trouble, to reassure her.”

Only this time, the reports proved prophetic. Vega was reportedly gunned down in a state controlled by the dangerous Sinaloa cartel while driving his red Cadillac Saturday night to play a concert.

Gunmen opened fire on Vega’s car, causing him to lose control of the vehicle. The gunmen then “finished Mr. Vega off” with shots to the head and chest, according to a report in the Mexican newspaper El Debate.

Vega told several media outlets he had upped his personal security detail after the 2007 slaying of singer Sergio Gomez, frontman for the band K-Paz de la Sierra.

Gomez, a fellow Grupero (or Mexican folk) musician, was kidnapped from a concert and later found strangled.

This is crazy. Seven murders in three years? These motherfu*kers are RUTHLESS.

  • whoknew!?

    what the heck are yall talking. you make it seem like black people are suppose to be jealous, or disappointed because the Mexicans are hard when it comes to drugs and drug killings. in fact, teeths over lamenting that now black young people will be forced into education as an alternative. i know you were just messing around teeth. anyway, i just think that this whole thing is a mess and a terrible way to live. but some folks like living that way, and it costs them. sometimes their lives.

    Educated Goon cut it out urkel, First you are in college and now you know gangsters. Now you know the dope game, ?????..What you are saying is completely false, if you ever been to LA you know that the EsE’s run it. A war with those EsE’s is violence and pure and indiscriminate violence, because those Sewer rats shoot on kids and women. Its like a religion to those Mexicans, its sad but a life of stupidity. No black gangsters are shooting EsE’s like that, normally the war stays between races, when the blacks over reach trust the ish gets heavy. No one is shooting those Ms13 cats, if they were, you would be hearing about more killings. Like anyone who has been to Cali Knows, those EsE’s run it, and they run it like they in prison.
