Loco used to have a stutter when he was younger, during his junior high and high school days, which was totally lousy. He couldn’t hold a conversation with people, especially girls. At that point, hip hop came to him, he thought it was a cool movement, just like rappers, who could just say whatever they wanted. This inspired him, as well as the group CB Mass and Kanye West, who he listened to at school besides his classmates. He and his friends decided that they also wanted to compose and in fact, they formed a group called “Satgotbong” (which is why their instagram is “Satgotloco”) which was the name of the sauna that was located in their neighborhood. They all had the idea that if they were going to do shows like any other rapper, it would be boring, so they all decided to dress up in those particular clothes they wore in the saunas while doing their performance.
