Joe, The

Joe, The
Country:Canada
Website:http://www.thejoehiphop.com
Releases:[Float or Flail] [The Proletariat LP] [Cool-School Geek-Rap BackPack Weird-Core : The Mixtape]
Info:Hailing from Edmonton, Alberta. He is representing his young and vibrant local and national scene with fresh beats and progressive lyricism that builds and edifies the listeners' mind and spirit.

Style
The Joe uses a wealth of wordplay and a rich, complex vernacular to communicate who he is. A child of God with deep insights and a unique sense of humor, he translates his eccentric personality into cryptic rhyme schemes. He finds inspiration in all things, from the Bible, to a homonym, to a quirky vocal sample. He calls his music "Neapolitan" because it has all kinds of different flavors; from the eternal plot of mankind, to social injustice, to strange idiosyncrasies in a close friend?s character.

Fun
He tries to invoke that special feeling of down-home family fun. To quote The Joe, "I just wanna craft raps for all my special power rangers with a pension for funky fresh."

Albums
In 2006 the MC released his debut album called The Proletariat LP. The Joe only has distribution in Canada by CMC Distribution.

Awards
The record The Proletariat LP won a Covenant Award in the category Best Rap/Hip Hop Album of the Year at the annual ceremony held by the Gospel Music Association Canada on Friday October 27th, 2006.

New Projects
In the Fall of 2007 The Joe started recording his sophomore album, entitled "Float or Flail" to be released in 2008.
