16 Narco Corridos
Released: Mar 2009
Label: Mendieta Discos
The Arizona-based Hernandez is one of the linchpins of the new wave of narcocorrido artists. This album has gone platinum in the U.S., and it is suffused with tales of drugs, shootouts, cocaine and cartels -- punctuated by mind-boggling runs on the accordion. Given the relative lack of radio support for narcocorridos, Hernandez has become savvy in new media: He has his own YouTube channel featuring homemade clips of himself singing and firing off his guns. Hernandez also plays accordion and drums, and counts slain singer Chalino Sanchez as a primary inspiration.
