Cordell Drake recently posted something quite exciting on his Facebook feed!

That’s right, on the 24th of June, Bakersfield’s Kern County Fair Grounds are gonna get a hell of a visit! This venue is the home turf of a bunch of awesome hip hop artists, and they’ve come out en masse to celebrate the showdown in the best way anyone could imagine. DL Down3r, Uno Tha Prodigy, Lokust Luciano and Cordell Drake will all be out to help celebrate, and their dope musical panache will serve as the backdrop for the many vehicles of the event! We got Mini Trucks, 4x4s, C10 Hot Rods, Semis, and of course your good old cars and trucks! And don’t forget… Low Riders.

Low riders in particular are a kind of whip that these four boys can’t get enough of, and you’d know that if you’ve already seen the music videos where they were featured. And you can expect that kind of musical swagger from DL, Uno, Lokust and Drake on the day too.

Well, what are you waiting for? It’s at 1142 S P st, Bakersfield CA, 93307 on the 24th of June 2023, so make sure not to miss it, and if you need more info, click here to check out the original social media post!

Can’t wait to see you there! 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. 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 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 mastermind behind Suga Boom Boom. 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! See you there fam!
