Joey embraced his penchant for music (rap) right from 6th grade with a grouped he formed which he aided in ghost-writing most of the songs they made together. The success of the group birthed a strong belief in his musical abilities and strengthened his unrelenting desire to pursue it.

The two started making “Good” songs together and got noticed by the founder of Skillions, Jay-So and later got signed to Skillions with the likes of Kill-Matic, Bra Kevin Beats, Rumor, Gospel Artiste Paapa, Padlock and the fastest English Rapper Gemini.
