The Tucson Hip Hop Festival

Although Tucson Arizona doesn’t come to mind when you think Hip Hop, it does have a thriving Hip Hop community. Pike & Jocelyn have joined to create a festival and we discuss it’s future, the local culture and the artists community.

Hip Hop





Pike Romero and Jocelyn Valencia

are two very busy creative entrepreneurs who care deeply about their community and the artists in it. The music scene in Tucson is diverse and Hip Hop continues to grow as the community of artists develop and perfect their craft. The Tucson Hip Hop Festival, now in it’s second year, showcases the culture and the talent locally and regionally.

Pike also manages, promotes artists and produces events, while Jocelyn is active throughout the creative community with seminars, poetry and blogging meet ups and much more.
