Los Tigres Del Norte
Jefe de los Jefes
Fonovisa

By Pilar Alvarez

Published September 13, 2005

Mexico's Los Tigres Del Norte has been bringing norteno music to the masses since the late '60s. But they really hit their stride in the '70s, when they injected drugs, guns and vivid pulp storytelling into the corrido ballad to invent the narcocorrido, one of the best-selling genres of Mexican regional music. And they haven't looked back since. This 1997 double album is Los Tigres' masterpiece, a daring concept album that opens with a Mafia don reflecting on his empire, but that goes on to push against the limits of the genre and move it forward to the next level.
