We are only 34 days away from the 6th Annual Arizona Hip Hop Festival and of course that means you are probably looking at the lineups and trying to decide which artists to catch live. We wanted to highlight some artists you should check out when the biggest Hip Hop event in Arizona commences for the sixth year in a row. We are proud to present an AZ artist making waves in Hip Hop, Jalopy Bungus.
If you like your Hip Hop served up with enlightenment, poignant topics, and lyricism then you need to listen to Jalopy Bungus. Cutting his teeth on stages as part of the Hip Hop group 20 Pounds, it was clear that Jalopy Bungus was the front runner for the group at the time and with a cavalcade of talent and motivation he decided to carve his own path. With change comes unrest and with unrest comes conflict. He channeled that energy and internal conflict into an incredible album. His album Samson has garnered praise from industry heavy hitters like Futuristic, Lyrical Lemonade, Tory Lanez and Cypress Hill. Dropping his first official project in 2017 and gaining momentum with it, Jalopy Bungus could‘ve taken a less complicated approach and made significant moves but he doubled down on his connections to the truth and made an album that has connected with people in ways that even highly acclaimed artists can’t achieve. His videos are thoughtful and well shot with a direction that syncs up with the song and amplifies the message. With his drive and ambitions it’s clear to see that Jalopy Bungus has what it takes to take over Hip Hop. He crafts music for the masses by pulling back the wool that is covering our collective eyes and shining a light into the darkest corners. His fans look to him as a beacon of honesty in our industry and they have shown by how packed his performances are that they are turning into some of the most fanatical around. Don’t miss your chance to catch him headlining this year at the 6th Annual Arizona Hip Hop Festival.
