"Concert Reveiw July 26th 2011"

"John Hernandez aka Juárez is a lyrical maniac that came from nowhere, and held Portland, Oregon's underground hip-hop scene at knife point. His live performance was nothing short of AMAZING! Imagine if Eminem turned into a Satanist, and wrote the sound track to A Nightmare On Elm Street.
He has been known to decapitate his rivals with just a few words, mutilate their corpses with sharp beats, and bass drops then dump them back on the streets to instill fear not only to the general public but to local law enforcement as well."

In the winter of 2010 John Hernandez aka JUAREZ,-Murder capitol of the world- began his musical climb from the gutters, straight out of the Hollywood district and 82nd street scene of Portland Oregon, with a mind set on rap, horror, and black magic. Funding his antics with tarot card readings, and moonlighting as a craigslist gigolo he acquired many aka's and monikers in the mean time, Mista Sinista, LeGioN, and Johnny Jay he became a favorite of haunted house parties, and small Portland grottos. Moving in the 503 to where the city code reads 666 Juarez began crafting a conjure. A demo of collected work entitled MAGIANEGRA, an eight song ep that is coveted by his local following, fondly referred to as legion. With lyrical smatters of spree killing, Aztec mythology, man whoring, and doomsday prophecies with a dash of satanic overtones, JUAREZ is well on his way to make his name in the realm of dark hip hop both as a DJ and as an MC.
