The Lost Boyz, the Grammy award-winning hip-hop group from South Jamaica, Queens, left an indelible mark on the music industry and hip-hop culture. Now, there’s a chance to immortalize their legacy by creating a “Lost Boyz District” in their hometown.

A new petition is calling for the establishment of a dedicated district in Queens to celebrate the contributions of Mr. Cheeks, Spigg Nice, Freaky Tah, Pretty Lou, and the entire Lost Boyz crew. This initiative aims to pay tribute to the rich hip-hop culture that has emerged from the borough and honor the icons who put Queens on the map.

The Lost Boyz burst onto the scene in the mid-90s with their unique sound and infectious hits like “Renee” and “Me and My Crazy World.” Their debut album, “Legal Drug Money,” went certified platinum and earned them a Grammy nomination for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group. Their success paved the way for countless other artists from Queens and inspired a generation of hip-hop enthusiasts.

By signing this petition, you can help ensure that the Lost Boyz’s impact is forever etched in the fabric of their community. The “Lost Boyz District” would serve as a constant reminder of the group’s contributions and the vibrant hip-hop culture that continues to thrive in Queens.

Don’t miss this opportunity to give these New York hip-hop icons their well-deserved flowers. Sign the petition today and spread the word using the hashtag #LostBoyzDistrict. Let’s come together as a community to honor the Lost Boyz and celebrate the rich musical heritage of Queens.
