Featured Artist: Gods Illest Joe


September 14th, 2016

We recently sat down with Gods Illest Joe to learn more about his movement and his music.

Us: How did you come up with your artist name?
Gods Illest Joe: Had a few rap names starting out, Joey Cracks (which we all know who’s alias that is). Then there was G-Money (but that’s too typical) .. So we went with Gods Illest Joe, or G.I. Joe! I’m the illest Joe God created!

Us: What inspired you to start making music?
Gods Illest Joe: The juice soundtrack, I started writing with my older cousin, and it just took from there. Putting together my very own 1st show! It was a feeling uncomparable… Fell in love with music & performing after that!

Us: Who is/are your biggest influence(s) and why?
Gods Illest Joe: JAY Z, I mean he’s the G.O.A.T of this rap music thing! That’s who I grew up listening to, and still listen to, to this day. N.O.R.E. was another one, Kurupt, I mean those are names that stand out… No matter east or west coast! I could go on, I’ll leave it at that.

Us: What do you want your fans to feel when they hear your music?
Gods Illest Joe: Originality, I want them to feel as if hip hop never left or died… True hip hip, I love to rap so I want them to love me rapping or to hear me! Feel connected to what I’m speaking on.

Us: What can we expect from you? What are you working on? What do you have coming out?
Gods Illest Joe: My debut album, we working on that as we speak! You can expect consistency, diversity, you have to be able to touch multiple topics… That’s a great artist .. Not just give you or feed you turn up music! Across the board, that’s how we do. A few dope visuals in the works as well, you will be able to catch those on my official VEVO channel!
