Peso Pluma has cancelled his Tijuana convert after receiving death threats from a Mexican cartel, TMZ reports.
The cancellation was announced on Instagram Wednesday, music labels Double P Records and Prajin Music Group said in a statement, “Our goal is to protect the fans and the team. For the safety of everyone involved, we will cancel our show in Tijuana.”
According to the report by TMZ, it’s been a week since the 24-year-old singer Peso Pluma was in the cartel’s crosshairs, when banners were spotted within the city, warning Peso Pluma to not come to Tijuana and perform.
They read, “This goes to Peso Pluma, refrain from presenting yourself on October 14, because it will be your last show due to your disrespect and loose tongue.” Seems the message was received loud and clear.
The threat was signed by the Jalisco New Generation Cartel, an organization based in the city where Peso was born.
Peso is just one of many Mexican artists who make references to drug lords, illegal organizations, and other crimes that have gone down in the country it appears that was where the cartel’s distaste was coming from.
