Not just The Jingle Jam: some more hype plans from Down3r and Lokust! MEET THE GRINCH!
11 Nov 2022

If you’ve ever seen a Down3r show before, you’ll know that it’s something really special. But you don’t have to take our word for it: the comments on posts like this wherein DL reflects on his recent adventures should tell you all you need to know. The fans love him, that’s for sure!

If you wanted to get a slice of that for yourself, there’s no better place to start than the upcoming Jingle Jam 9! The perfect way to have a great time with DL Down3r, Lokust Luciano, the Suga Boom Boom crew, AND close out 2022 with a big holiday bang! Will you be there? Will you make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate? We can’t think of a better way to do that than taking in your favourite music, personally!

With giveaways, a festive atmosphere, and a fun time for all, Jingle Jam 9 is gonna be an unmissable event, especially if you’re young or young at heart! One lucky kid is gonna get a bike given to them… that is, as Down3r puts it, unless the Grinch steals it first!

But what did he mean by this? He isn’t talking about the LITERAL Grinch, is he…?

Oh my God he is. THE GRINCH IS IN TOWN EVERYONE! What are we gonna do?! We’ll need to keep an eye on him at the Jingle Jam together to make sure he doesn’t cause any trouble. All the more reason to attend and keep an eye out for any anti-holiday SHENANIGANS that might be going on…

If you wanna get in on all of this, there’s no better way to keep up to date than with the schedule, available now on BandsInTown!

Can’t wait to see you there! And we’re very excited for what could be coming after the Jingle Jam, too… Lokust recently teased that something BIG is on the way, and DL Down3r will be involved too, as you’d expect… stay tuned. We sure will!

But what about those readers who haven’t heard about these talented rollers and what they do? 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’re indecisive about buying tickets for the Jingle Jam.

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 a determined 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, just be there at Jingle Jam 9 and get ready for a wakeup call like you’ve never had before!
