Just when you thought it couldn’t get any hotter in Phoenix this summer, it did just that. On the 30th day of July, Arizona hip hop heads woke up to a reenactment of Don’t Be A Menace to South Central in the form of a music video. A new, flavorful single by newly signed artist Marquel Deljuan, 23 of Peoria, Arizona, who acted as Shawn Wayans’s character, Ashtray. The song and video features Arizona’s chart-topping artist, and head of Sheeesh World Collective, Futuristic, who played the role of “Loc Dog” originally portrayed in the film by Marlon Wayans.
There is a lot of talent in the state of Arizona. From artists like Tommy Will, Vee Tha Rula, Marquel Deljuan, JusXJustice, Delly Everyday, and Dann G, or groups like 20 Pounds, Vibe Lane, Prime Society, and Swag Kingz, the Arizona music scene covers a wide variety of styles. This is not an exclusive list (Arizona definitely has a longer list of talent).
