The corrido also created popular heroes and celebrated their lives and adventures. Pancho Villa , revolutionary leader, was one of the figures celebrated through this corridos. Although these corridos mention kidnappings, assassination, executions, battles and disasters, they differ from the current narco-corridos in that the original corridos attempted to tell a story and give a moral message like the fall and redemption, the sin and punishment, or life and death of a person.
The first narco-corridos began to appear in the s. Narcocorridos glorify and romanticize narco trafficking, and in a more recent trend of hyper-violent lyrics called Movimiento alterado , Spanish for the cocaine- alertness movement ,  they started to express the pride of modern narcos have in murdering, torturing and dismembering their rivals. The traditional corridos spoke about the benevolent bandit who committed crimes for a good cause in a robin-hood style.

In addition to narrating the stories of well-known drug lords, narcocorridos demonstrate the evolution of drug trafficking in Mexico. The narcocorridos display a yearning for the countryside while expressing a desire for the modernity that the city has to offer. The austerity and simplicity of the countryside is reflected through images of horses, the ranch, agriculture, poverty, and the sombrero. The modernity of the city and material desires are expressed through images of mansions, luxury cars, cell phones, and designer clothing.
A music scene, similar to the early underground gangsta-rap scene of the Mid to Late 90's, has emerged in northeastern Mexico Nuevo Leon , Tamaulipas and Coahuila , where the musical phenomenon of hip-hop is being co-opted by the influence of organized crime and the drug war in the region. With lyrics similar to those of a narcocorrido drug ballad , has appeared the Mexican Narco-rap.
However, unlike the corridos, which relate to rural regions of the Mexican Pacific and which are generally linked to the Sinaloa cartel the narco-rap emerged in the urban area of Tamaulipas, in the border with Texas , a turf currently under armed dispute between the Zetas and the Gulf Cartel. Derived from the constant presence of "halcones" "hawks", cartel spies and cartel-convoys circulating the streets of the region, young people have been involved in the local narcoculture, and narco-raps express the reality of life on the streets, of those cities under the drug cartels rule.
There are several notable cases, among them is a highly popular song called The Song of Metro 3 on YouTube that praises the life and exploits of drug lord Samuel Flores Borrego alias Metro 3 for his "ferocity and loyalty. Narco juniors are the children of the older drug traffickers,   or the children of rich entrepreneurs that get involved in drug trade "for fun",   that have come to reconstitute the meaning of narcoculture and drug trafficking.
Unlike their fathers or grandfathers, the narco juniors have for the most part been raised in urban wealth. The older narco traffickers were raised in rural poverty, placed a high value on family and felt connected to their people and culture. They felt a responsibility to give back to their community. The narco juniors share a cynical pride in being drug traffickers.
The narco juniors place more value on spending money, parties, and luxury. Narco-superstition and religion is a major aspect of narcoculture. It is a form of superstition , depicted through drug traffickers' devotion to St. Jude Thaddaeus patron of lost causes and desperate situations and Jesus Malverde.
Jesus Malverde was said to be a bandit that stole from the rich to give to the poor. He lived his life running from the authorities. His image was appropriated as the patron saint of drug traffickers, the poor, and the marginalized. An altar with his name was erected in the place where it is said that he was hanged by the government. Another aspect of narco religion is the involvement of drug traffickers with their local churches.
This occurs primarily through narco limosnas narco-donations that drug traffickers give to the church. Nora Perez-Rayon Elizundia gives an example of a bishop in Aguascalientes that admitted to taking donations from a drug trafficker because he said that the money could be "purified" when used for good causes.
These type of activities are not mainstream narco-behaviors, but do occur in some remote areas. Narco propaganda includes narco mantas, banners that appear in public places, such as highway overpasses and bridges. This is a way for narcos to communicate directly to the populace. These banners are also used to threaten leaders or other members of rival cartels. Variations of these banners include the narco poster, a message left next to a dead body, and the narco-pinta, graffiti sprayed or hand-painted on a whitewashed brick or adobe wall next to a commercial building or house.

Modern literature, not only novels or poetry but also newspapers, magazines and internet publishings, are means that tend to narrate 'real stories', or at least what is believed to be real about certain people involved with the narco movement. Sometimes they exaggerate the legacy of these people, and of the crimes they have committed, in order to intimidate their enemies or the population in general. In a recent interview Hilario states that the narco western is the modern version of a western.

Narco cinema in Mexico started as a combination of telenovelas soap operas and Mexican cinema during the s, where the 'golden age' of cinema collapsed due to the interest of the population in television. These films are rarely discussed in mainstream media because of their low budgets, and connection with pop culture and low brow entertainment. Narco cinema today controls the Mexican film market, being influential along the border between the United States and Mexico. The films deal with the identity of the narco, consisting of a struggle of an anti-hero being immersed in a border culture, articulating narratives of life, death, love, loss, hope, greed, desire, humor and violence, alongside addiction, repetition and compulsion.
Narco cinema develops anti-norms and expresses feelings discouraged in culturally accepted institutions. The use of stereotyped characters and predictable plots alienates those looking for subtexts, complex story lines, and sophisticated writing, but for the poor rural people, these films are in demand because they tell the story of their lives and the lives around them. Narco violence is also used by mainstream films, taking inspiration from real life events that marked the country, or in other cases fictionalized events,  example: Breaking Bad.
Miss Bala , a film directed by Gerardo Naranjo, that premiered in Cannes and got attention from critics, became a box office success in Mexico. Based on real life events, it tells the story of a young woman dreaming of becoming a beauty pageant queen.

Narcos manipulate her to work for them, in exchange for her victory. El Infierno is a film directed by Luis Estrada. Compared to Miss Bala , this film is more fictionalized and makes use of dark humor, developing empathy for the anti-hero, glorifying the drug bosses. Heli , by Mexican director Amat Escalante, is one of the most representative films of narco cinema.

The director said he tried not to focus the movie around explicit violence, which is expected of drug related movies. Yet one scene from the movie was considered the most brutal in Mexican cinema, showing traffickers burning the genitals of two young men in front of a group of children. Escalante refers to this as exposition, in that it shows how Mexico's youth is being ruined by these kind of people, at times leaving them without anything to look forward to in the future. The film focuses on love, family and hope, people wanting to believe they can succeed. This hope is conveyed through the eyes of Estela, a girl who falls in love with an older boy who involves her and her family in the drug world.
