Joie Kathos Talks The Creative Process Of Her Latest Video “Faded”

I got to sit down with Philly’s own Joie Kathos and discuss her new song/video “Faded,” who she is currently listening to and where is the best place to get a cheese-steak in the city of brotherly love.

From appearing on Oxygen Network’s, ‘The Glee Project,’ where she made top 15 female finalists out of 45,000, to being sponsored by Red Bull, winning ‘Best New Artist’ at the 2013 Philly Hip Hop Awards, and now being the only artist to make the Mayor of Philadelphia dance, Joie Kathos is proving that she deserves her spot every chance she gets. Her EP entitled “Floaters” is out now.” –  Via JoieKathos.com

Sean Prices’ Top 12 Most Hilarious Moments (RIP)

“Duck Down are some of the nicest and most genuine people in the business and I feel for them right now.”Mike Trampe

Donate To Sean Price’s Fund: https://www.crowdrise.com/seanp

Hip Hop took a shot today and I’m not sure the wound will ever heal. In my opinion, Sean Price was an incredible guy, a unique personality, an amazing emcee and a hip-hop legend.

Rest in Peace Sean, we’ll miss you P.

Heroin & Hip Hop: Why I Posted The Cadalack Ron Video

So I have caught some backlash for posting a video called “California Rapper Cadalack Ron Shoots Heroin During Rap Battle”.

Let me explain to you why I think this video needs to be seen, and it’s not for the views or the “comical” reasons some people think. We are dealing with an epidemic right now, whether you want to admit or not. I have lost 10 friends in the last 2 years to drug overdose, all from heroin.
