If you look up the definition of a corrido, Google will tell you that it is a “ballad in a traditional Mexican style, typically having lyrics that narrate a historical event.” Key word here is “historical,” so if you hear those corridos that our parents played back in the day, you’d know what was going down in the Latino community during that time. Today, Latinos are going through a myriad complexities, and there’s a new generation of writers and performers that are singing about this crucial and terrifying time.

Meet brother and sister act Yaxeni y Ricardo who call themselves Los Luzeros De Rioverde. The siblings are a corrido band that is singing about the harsh times facing the community under the current administration.

These cute kids are Houston natives and while they look very young they are wise beyond their years.

In their short time as artists, they’ve already released three albums. Their latest is called “Con amor y sentimiento.”

All of their albums feature songs in both English and Spanish.

They’s performed for audiences at various venues, including in national tv for people like Steve Harvey.

Yup, they were featured on “Little Big Shots.”

However, they’re latest corrido is causing big waves on the internet because it’s about deportation.

The song is called “Si me deportan” (“If I get deported”).

The brother and sister sing about the strict laws of the United States, and they sing through the point of view of their parents.

“What if they deport us with our kids/even though they were born in the United States,” the song begins.

“We are millions who live here illegally/but we came here to improve our lives/and even though they call us criminals, that will never get us down.”

The duo has been showered with praise and love for the song highlighting the terrifying situation so many people are experiencing right now.

In 2016, Yaxeni y Ricardo talked about being against deportation and the separation of families.

They released a song about deportation back then called “El Descendiente” (The Offspring).

“We want to be the voice of all those kids who don’t have a voice,” Yaxeni said.

It’s no news that Cardi B and Offset have welcomed a beautiful baby girl into their lives and named her Kulture. We haven’t seen photos of the lucky bebe yet, but we have seen mad photos of the baby gifts that just keep flooding their mailbox.

So far, Kulture has been gifted at least $7,000 in designer fashions from Versace changing bags to Fendi strollers, she’s already living her best life. Low key, if we had the same friends as Cardi B, we’d love to have a baby. Here are some of the gifts that are giving us some serious baby envy right now.

Some gift givers kept it light and funny for the rapper.

Honestly, this kind of flower arrangement is equal parts beautiful and hilarious. Who wouldn’t like to know that they are more than just a mother after having a sweet, beautiful baby.

The Bardi Baby Bodega set the bar for Kulture gifts.

Cardi B threw a Bronx Fairy Tale themed baby shower, that touched on her own upbringing con la bodega. Talk about an adorable set up for a great baby shower and start to a life as a family unit..

As parting gifts, they gave their guests custom baby blankets.

It took over 40 people and two days to set up the baby shower in Atlanta. You know it also took weeks of planning to print all of these gorgeous labels.

The treats were rica af.

The couple offered a five tier cake, and get this: the layers were Dominican pineapple, strawberry, red velvet, chocolate ganache, and honey bun flavors. How can we get invited to the next baby shower?

Obviously there would also be some coquito for everyone.

She did say the Bronx, okay? Cardi B and Offset couldn’t be more excited to be parents and celebrate their little muñeca linda coming into this life with them.

Their home was flooded with packages for Kulture with so much love.

If you’re not already following Cardi B on Instagram, you’re missing out. Once a week, she gives shoutouts to some of our other favorite celebrities for some of the most insane gifts.

Baby Kulture has received so many gifts that Cardi B has lost track of who sent what.

“Somebody gave me this ugly ass flamingo, but for some reason I like him, and everybody else in the house likes him. I don’t know who put that green bandana on his head but whatever.”

Things got super personal with a Baby Bardi stroller and carrier.

The wheels are even gold rims. We cannot wait to see pictures of lil Kulture in this cutie stroller or all of her strollers for that matter.

Yup, Kulture already has at least $4,000 in strollers.

In Cardi’s own words, “this is 2020 modern sh*t.”

“Someone gave me this poppin-ass Fendy stroller with the Fendy diaper bag and IDK who sent it to me, but I’m finna find out. Your motha’s got the whips.”

Plus, Tiffany bows and a Givenchy teddy bear because duh.

The teddy bear is $195. I mean, that is an anatomically perfectly cute teddy bear, so it’s reasonable. Meanwhile, my teddy bear came from Toys ‘R Us.

Good to know that it was all 100 percent necessary.

“Every bottle, every diaper wipes, every pampers, everything, every binky, everything that people…from the smallest thing to the biggest thing… trust me it has been used.”

What proper bebe doesn’t need a massage baby seat?

“This shit fire right here. I think this gives massages and all that shit. My baby finna feel right and it matches my truck owwww.”

Even Chipotle is dishin’ out that chips, guac and queso.

They sent her a literal briefcase filled to the brim with a lifetime supply of free chips and guac, with a h/t to her collab with J.Lo on “Dinero”:

“We hear you Cardi B. Here’s all the chips, guac and queso, the most precious dinero.”

Meanwhile, Kulture got a lifetime supply of Adidas which is genius.

One pair in every size. Atlantic Records sent this over and Cardi and Kulture will be thanking them through the ages. Freakin’ genius.

At this point, Cardi doesn’t need to buy a single thing for Kulture.

“Oooooh, someone’s gonna be so popping’ in her cute little bows, but my baby got such a cute tiny little head right now, they might not fit her.”

We’re all helping clothe and adorn this baby.

It’s a public right and duty to groom the most loved, go-get-em niña to enter this world. Kulture is going to have a very nice and easy life.

Janelle Monae is not one to be outdone and this amazing gift proves it.

Apparently, these roses smell like roses for all of eternity and we don’t know how. We do know that Cardi B considers Janelle Monae to be in her top 5 of fashion icons.

Even fans are sending their love.

We don’t know what Kulture looks like, but we know she’s definitely wearing some cute bows on her head. As she should.

She’s already got a Benz waiting for her.

The gift was meant to match her mother’s car, but Cardi and Offset gave each other their own baby gifts.

And her parents have their own new whips to play with.

The two got matching Lambo’s for each other, officially making them the coolest parents of all time.

Also something I expect from my future wife as a ‘thank you for having my baby’ gift.

Basically, they need to buy Kulture her own house to store all this stuff in.

We’re positive that the moment her face is revealed to the world, there will be another Great Flood of Gifts in her life.
