Los Angeles CA (May 2021)–Rapper and producer W. Corona unites with fellow Monterrey, MX-based MC Geassassin on the new single “El Jugador”.

Corona’s recent foray into Regional Mexican music, incorporating the genre’s traditional sounds with modern rap/hip-hop rhythms.
Watch the “El Jugador” music video:
The lyrics of “El Jugador” speak about both of the artists’ personal struggles and the obstacles they have had to face in life in order to finally gain respect as artists. They also go into detail about the sacrifices they have had to make to achieve financial wellbeing, including the difficult experiences they have encountered while surviving in the music industry.
This single release comes off the heels of W. Corona’s latest full-length album, Rancho Gang. Featuring thirteen songs infused with hip hop, sierreño, and norteño influences, the album takes listeners on a sonic trip through the genres that have formed a principal part of W. Corona’s childhood experiences in his home city of Monterrey, Mexico. It also includes Reggaeton and Cumbia rhythms, creating a multicultural album nourished by both Caribbean and and Mexican sounds. Rancho Gang reflects the experiences of W’s life, and each of the thirteen songs takes listeners through many wild twists and turns.
Listen to Rancho Gang:
- Corona is well known for the diversity of his music. Thanks to his honesty, listeners are consistently offered tails of his experiences, triumphs, romances, heart breaks, celebrations, nostalgias and failures. While in the studio, he always follows his heart and uses fear as an incentive to work harder and to take risks in order to achieve his goals: to grow as an artist and evolve, have fun with friends and enjoy the journey without “taking it too serious.” The young producer and MC recently has found a new path by mixing modern hip hop styles with organic Regional Mexican sounds while melodically telling poignant stories with colloquial lyrics.
