The LACS at The Rust Belt

September 21, 2023 @ 6:00 pm

The LACSwith Justin Champagne & Dustin Spears
The Rust Belt | East Moline, IL
Thursday, September 21
“People see stuff that is already there and ask why I dream stuff that never was and ask why not”. This saying describes the LACS, they saw what was already there, had big dreams to be there, and asked the music industry why not? Their hick hop and southern rock sound is stronger than the moonshine they drink. The LACS are from the sandy dirt roads of Baxley, Georgia. A South Georgia town more famous for its sawmills and turpentine stills than for having a successful southern rap group. The LACS consist of hip hop artist Clay “Uncle Snap” Sharpe and lead vocalist / guitarist Brian “ Rooster” King. With a blue collar background they have worked shutdowns with the union and framed many a house to earn enough money keep their music dreams alive.
Justin Champagne
Justin Champagne was born and raised in New Iberia, Louisiana, and he is known for his genre-bending music rooted in the sounds, stories, and swampy swagger of his home turf. His father passed away when he was six years old, leaving his mother to juggle multiple jobs to help provide for the family. Her tireless work ethic inspired Justin, who started recording his first songs as a teenager. Meanwhile, the loss of his father – an amateur musician – shaped his own approach to music. Justin was determined to chase down the creative milestones that would have made his dad proud. He began making music that was diverse and driven, collaborating with multi-platinum rapper Kevin Gates one minute and then recording his own pop-influenced songs the next.
