Wow, sh*t gets REAL in Mexico.  So these guys managed to not get merked by THE F*CKING GRENADE someone threw on stage, but couldn’t escape the guys with automatic weapons waiting for them outside.  Mexico is out of control.  You can’t just be murdering people for not playing music past 4 in the morning.  All these rappers complaining has just been put in perspective.  According to the NY Daily News:

  • Two members of local group La Excelencia were murdered in a Guadalajara bar early Monday morning after refusing to play more songs past closing time, El Occidental of Mexico reported.
    When La Excelencia’s performance came to an end around 4 a.m. local time, four reportedly intoxicated and aggressive audience members demanded the musicians continue playing. Sensing trouble, the group extended its set by two songs, but was eventually forced to pull the plug by the bar’s owner, according to El Occidental.
    Out of nowhere, one of the instigators threw a grenade at the stage. The explosion injured one person and had panicked customers running for the exits.
    Martinez and Alejandro were among those who fled the bar, but they were met at the front door by a hail of bullets, presumably from the same four men who had harassed them earlier.
    By the time police arrived at the scene, the killers had already escaped by car. No witnesses were able to identify the getaway vehicle.
