#TBT: Desloc Piccalo – Stick N Roll

by .

YEAR: 2008

At the peak of Miami’s dance revolution in the underground Desloc Piccalo will always be remembered for helping transition this part of rap culture to a bigger scale. In 2008 when times seemed golden and fun was never seldom, Piccalo released one of the few official videos for his many street anthems, this one being “Stick N Roll”. Named for the body movements that the entire South Florida danced, like one big tribe. The Rapper-Producer was constantly curating the movements of the listeners. Either forcing them to jook and bop, or just simply vibe. Today, we’d like to remind those who forgot and shed light to those who never knew the greatness of this time era.
