NEW YORK — He’s not bustin’ outta this one.

When convicted cocaine kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman is sentenced June 25 for a litany of crimes that will likely keep him behind bars for the rest of his life, chances are good his new address will be a notorious Supermax prison in Colorado that boasts a 100 percent no-escape record.

The former head of Mexico’s vicious Sinaloa cartel helped forge his legend with a pair of daring, straight-out-of-Hollywood prison breaks. In 2001, he hid in a laundry cart pushed along by a corrupt guard; 14 years later Guzman rode to freedom on a motorcycle through a 1 {-mile tunnel built under the shower of his cell.
