In his own nation, Jesús Cardenas, better known by his stage name Chuy Montana, was a rising star. Cardenas gained popularity on social media for singing and playing his guitar in between cars in a queue to re-enter the United States through the San Ysidro, Tijuana, side of the border in Mexico, even before Ortiz Paz’s Street Mob Records signed him.
After the release of his hits Porte de Scarface and Ramos Buchones, Cardenas eventually became extremely popular.
