In 2007, El Babo was jailed for nine months after being charged in the accidental homicide of Ulises Nayit Buenrostro.

He was his friend and bandmate — a real tragedy.

The incident occurred on the night of March 30, when Eduardo met Ulises and Juan ‘Micky’ Chávez, the band’s driver.

El Babo fired a .38 caliber gun, killing Ulises instantly and hitting ‘Micky’ in the leg.

The case became more complex when it was reported that Ulises had been shot three times in the back.

Soon after, El Babo was arrested and charged with qualified homicide and illegal possession of a firearm.

The Cártel de Santa rapper claimed it was an accident, and that he was defending himself from Micky, with whom he had a strained relationship.

He was in the San Pedro Garza García prison in Nuevo León, Mexico from April 2007 to January 2008.

Soon after, the rapper released a song about the incident, titled ‘Cosas de la Vida,’ discussing the incident.

With my buddy Ulises, who came to do me a favor, a stray bullet took his life, you know, bro, it wasn’t even about you.

Recently, El Babo gave a long interview to Roberto Martínez for his podcast Creativo, discussing his time in jail.

In the interview, which sparked various reactions, the singer shared that he was surrounded by murderers, «all serving long sentences.»

«I thought, why befriend guys here for a short time and lose that strength?»

The singer was aware he might spend 25 to 40 years in prison, but luckily that didn’t happen.

During a part of the interview, according to infobae, El Babo said he was punished in jail for smuggling cell phones.

«I was punished for a while because they thought I was involved in some phones that came into the cells where I was,» he said.

He spent nearly four months in a space without ventilation, unable to read or write, and completely isolated.

«I didn’t know if it was night or day, 24 hours of that buzzing light… a damn… all-white cell…,» he said.
