Joseph Black is a 21-year-old self-made rapper, singer and producer from Duluth, Minnesota on a mission to make it. He has a DIY hustle and cracked the mainstream with “(i hope you) miss me,” a painfully honest breakup anthem fusing visceral emotive rhymes over trap drums and a simplistic melancholic piano. His creation process is self-taught starting from age 15 and is inspired from a mix of Eminem, Lil Wayne, and country music. Black had a chaotic upbringing growing up on welfare and he often got into fights in school before dropping out at age 18. He had a stunt turning to the lawless drug ridden streets while pursuing music. His sound is pandora’s box as he might drop a melodic banger or a street anthem or even a turnt-up-party-jam.
