Valentín Elizalde Valencia ((Spanish: [balenˈtin e‧li‧zal‧de baˈlensja] : February 1979 – 25 November 2006) was a Mexican banda music singer gunned down in an ambush. Known by the nickname “El Gallo de Oro” (The Golden Rooster), his biggest Banda hits included: “Vete Ya,” “Ebrio de Amor”, ” Vete Con Él”, “Vuelve Cariñito”, “Cómo Me Duele”, “Vencedor”, ” Mi Virgencita”, and “Soy Así”. Some of his songs were narcocorridos eulogizing Mexican drug lords like Vicente Carrillo Fuentes. He was allegedly murdered at the age of 27 by a member of the drug trafficking gang Los Zetas, which at that time served as the armed wing of the Gulf Cartel.

It is widely believed that Elizalde was killed due to his concert performance of “A Mis Enemigos”, which contains lyrics believed to antagonize drug trafficking gang Los Zetas. Raúl Hernández Barrón, alleged murderer of Elizalde and member of Los Zetas, was arrested on 22 March 2008, in Coatzintla, Veracruz. Valentin was buried in his father’s hometown Guasave,Sinaloa.

Por favor, disfruta.
