Rodrigo Ángel "Chito" Cano Rodríguez was a Mexican gun runner who is idealized as the subject of several Mexican corridos, including Ramon Ayala's "El Corrido De Chito Cano." This corrido recounts Cano's life and numerous encounters with death. He is described as a valiant man who was betrayed and shot in the back in 1971. Upon falling, he laughed and yelled for the cowards to finish him off rather than running away. As a result of the incident, he became a wheelchair user for the rest of his life. Cano died in 2010, at the age of 74, from complications related to pneumonia.
Los Cadetes de Linares also dedicated a corrido to Chito Cano titled "El Retorno De Chito Cano". Chito's brother Servando is the head of Serca Music.
