SOOPA STAGE LINEUP
SOOPA STAGE LINEUP
The spirits of our Ancestors are called to the sacred grounds of Shimmer Forest, lending their energies to empower the living, lyrical embodiment of The Warrior Soul. His booming voice and supernatural cadence compel you to move amongst an ocean of Juggalo Homies, splitting and mixing together in a kinetic mass as though under the influence of a shaman’s spell. The Shapeshifting abilities of this MC have allowed him to transcend his mortal restraints and move freely through the Hallowed Halls of Hatchet History. Now the time has come for The War Chief to emerge once again, rattling the earth with wardrum sounds of Native Funk and testing the worthiness of all who claim Warrior in his presence with a microphone in his hand and a medicine bag at his hip.

Ancient scripts written from an order of dark voodoo tribes foretell of an entity that will come upon our world as a shadow of death, reigning destruction and speaking in a rhythmic tongue that will instill madness, murder, and chaos. His passage will herald an age where the light of the world will dim and the vilest of magic will flow, ushering in a new age infused with unmentionable evil. It is foretold that with his passage the seas will boil, the skies will rain with blood, and the very dead will walk again. He goes by many names whispered amongst those who study the very darkest of occult lore, but you may know him by his true name…Big Hoodoo!
