Hailing from Guadalupe, Nuevo León, representing Monterrey and Northern Mexico to the fullest, La Gallo 3:20 is a lyricist and MC taking urban Mexican rap to new heights. Inspired by her hometown and cumbia "rebajadas," La Gallo 3:20 weaves urban narratives and street wisdom over dark hip hop samples and slowed cumbias.
She has performed in legendary venues such as Salon Los Angeles and Lunario National Auditorium in Mexico City, as well as in her hometown in Monterrey performing at festival tributes to the great Celso Piña.
In 2023 La Gallo collaborated with Trucha Soul Records to put out La Panicumbia EP, which has found its way around the world to dance floors and radio stations in Tokyo, Medellin, CDMX, LAX and more.
