With Deftones he released the albums Diamond Eyes (2010) and Koi No Yokan (2012).

He was the eighth member of a family of 13 children originally from the Horn Ejido, located on the outskirts of Ciudad Obregon, Sonora.
As a child, he moved to the USA where he founded Los Hermanos Vegas with his brothers. After several years the band renamed to Los Rayos del Norte returned to Mexico. The band later changed to Sergio Vega y Sus Shaka’s del Norte. Sergio was a singer of so called narcocorridos, in which the lives of drug bosses are glorified. Such singers are sometimes the target of rivaling gangs.
