Lokust, Down3r and the crew RULE Arizona!
May 26 2022
We said they were on their way, and they made sure that this was a tour to remember! The Suga Boom Boom crew took Arizona by storm and saw to it that they were the hottest party in town! TEN THOUSAND people showed up! Now that’s a hell of a night.
The night was dope as hell, and there’s no underselling that. Obviously we can look to the talent of all the artists involved when we think about how lit it was, but you should always remember the crew behind the scenes making it all happen. The Suga Boom Boom gang have given them their shoutouts too, along with giving the ups to each other and the brotherly bonds they share!
G’s 1st Studios has done a hell of a job putting all this together, and their social media hype surrounding the event before it went off is sure to be a large contributing factor to why it went down so good! We already KNOW you’ve seen these around before the event, a couple weeks back. Well we reckon it did the trick!
Avondale got rocked to its core, and seeing Down3r on stage with all of his crew is gonna be a sight to remember for the rest of our lives! Did we see you there?! DL Down3r and Lokust Luciano tore up the stage across these events, but don’t think for a second that they were alone! Just like the pre-event posters say, joining them were Bigg Cixx, Cordell Drake, Uno Tha Prodigy, Solja Sick, Moscato, NHL Gang, Yostailingo, Mia Banc33, A.N.R., Stee3y Cash, Backwood Biddy, Immin3nt Thr3at, Native Kyng, and G’s 1st Studios! That’s an all-star roster if we’ve ever seen one, and no matter your preferences for hip hop, there’s sure to be someone you like in the lineup. Perhaps you had a chance to see them at the limited meet and greet? Even if you didn’t, it would have been so lit to see this WILD show in person!
We’ve talked a big game about a few of these artists in particular in the past, and a refresher course might be just the thing you need if you attended the events and wanted to follow up on some fresh faces you wanted to hear more music from. Down3r and Uno Tha Prodigy have rocked many awesome and emotional singles together before, and the recent UNDEFEATED with Cordell Drake is absolutely killer. Bigg Cixx and DL showed the world that they take No L’s, Solja Sick impressed us with his awesome “Alright” that made New Years 2019 a blast, and of course Lokust Luciano has been turning heads his way with his latest releases. In fact, Lokust and DL are on our radars in a big way lately!
Lokust Luciano was born William Arciszewski on June 21st, 1988 as a premature baby, and diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. He grew up in North Fort Myers and began writing poetry at the tender age of 9 years old. He is the first rapper with Cerebral Palsy, and has been active in multiple facets of the Hip-Hop scene since 1998. He moved to Florida for leg surgery when he was very young, as the medical world at the time (1988) didn’t have a solid understanding of Cerebral Palsy yet, so he had to seek out an expert specialist. Orlando was the only place he could go for it, and he came out on the other side grinning. He is well known in the underground music scene for his production talent and lyrical delivery. He is also sometimes known by the handle “Crippled Kingpin”.
The adversities he has overcome are now a part of his personal aesthetic, showing his strength and sturdy sense of humour. His creative drive is unstoppable, and we’re sure you’ll agree when you see some of the hits from his catalogue that have been turning heads his way! We’ll see you there, and until next time, do what we’re planning to do… keep your ear to the ground for some spicy new releases from the Kingpin himself!

And of course there’s DL Down3r, the namesake behind the “Suga Boom Boom” part of the tour. Through fierce and funky west coast rap, DL Down3r shares his prolific work with the rest of the world, and the stage with west coast rap legends such as Coolio, Brown Boy, Jay Tablet, Lil Young, Snoopyblue, LadyDice, Baby Bash, Steel City Hustlers, King Z and DJ Kane to name a few.
From powerful messages, lyrical poetry and sharp comments on society, to G-funk and Trap/EDM hype songs, he proves that age and experience is the opposite of a liability in today’s rap game. Blast it loud, get ready to feel something, and rest assured knowing that hip hop never died! For evidence of that, we’re pretty sure all attendees for these recent Arizona shows will attest to the experience they’ve had… Suga Boom Boom baby!
