Chillin’ on a Sunday afternoon at Player’s Billiards with some of EPT’s finest car clubs and Hip Hop artists couldn’t have been any better. It was Convicted Artist’s first photo shoot of El Chuco Town’s lowrider movement, and it was impressive and entertaining.
We enjoyed the day socializing about cars while listening to the live performances of El Dreamer, Cuatrero, Mr. Geo and Kappa DeKurse. After the show we were introduced to two well established Car Clubs, Pachuco C.C. and Destiny C.C.
It was an honor to meet these quality clubs and feature their mean low riders. We leave with a respectful salute to EPLowrider.com, Pachuco C.C. and Destiny C.C.
Long live the ChucoTown lowrider movement!
Your great journalism and social skills makes ConvictedArtist.com that much better.
Destiny Car Club is a well established El Paso club with a tight family-oriented structure. These bad boys are nationally known and have low riders that incite envy in all four corners.

Chicano rap has always influenced me to do what i do. Back in 5th and 6th grade i would hear Lighter shade of brown, Lil Rob Lowprofile etc, these artist were a big thing in to my life, cause they were chicanos like me doing there own style of music that i can relate to. So know im a local artist from El Chuco, and im just trying to represent for all my RAZA, and the big bad 915. Latly Ive been doing alot of shows, I opened the Moter feast in the Noth East of El Paso (Kilo aka Down, Baby Boy, Mr Lil Uno), I also did the car show in Las Cruzes NM, opend up for Brown Boy. Ive been to phoenx for shows and I got Radio play in New Mexico. Im just a Chicano trying to put it work for the Chicano rap game. I thank god for this gift that he has gave me and for opneing doors for me and getting me a step higher to reaching my goal.
Through My Eyes

It was in the late 80’s and early 90’s when Chuco Town was blasting. Gang banging was hard and low riding was even harder. I was young, dumb and feeling good.
It was all about 40 ounse Mickey’s, red hair llesca and sensual cajeta brown Chuketas who were only a phone call away. Simon ESE, not a worry in the world, just me, my homitos and my cocaine white 79 Cutlass Supreme.
I remember my best friend Mr. Happy (Vito Attaguile RIP) and that loco always had the hook-ups. Always the finest rucas on his books. Babes from Jefferson, Riverside, Bell Air, Burges, Austin High, Andres, yeah get the picture.
We’d go down to the Goodtime Car Wash on Paisano and wash and wax the Cutlass, from its flawless body right down to its 13 inch 100 Spoke Wire Rim Roadsters. Then as the sun was about to set I’d head out to the chante , tirar playa and iron my best pair of dickies.
Mr. Happy and me would then cruise up Alameda while hitting the switches and thumping to Cypress Hill . It wouldn’t take long before we’d come across some sexy ass cholitas looking for some true O.G.’s . We never let it get to our heads. We never thought of our selves as “players”. We just thought that having all Chuco’s most beautiful girls in the Cutlass was the way life was supposed to be.
Then I remember the times we’d get chased out of Ascarate Park by the cops. Those porkys couldn’t stand the sight of low riders. But having them hate on us low-lows was kind of flattering. Hey, when people hate on a player that means the players doing it right. Simon as the saying goes “dogs don’t bark at park cars”. They bark at shiny ones that get everyone looking.
Like I mentioned before, Chuco was the place to be during those times. The bumper to bumpers in Hidden Valley shopping center. Those were the days!
