Right now are good times for Lovers of hip hop with substance. The Lox coming back with an album, J Cole declared War on every “wack” rapper in sight and the Wu Tang Clan has groomed a solider of their own. Over the last couple of years, the artist by the Name of Joe Young has learnt from what most would call one of the greatest rap crews of all time.
Taking notes, working on his craft, being mentored by Wu Tang Clan’s Cappadonna & Inspectah Deck and restructuring ‘Wu Wear’ with his partners in Germany, Joe’s mission is to re-establish the feeling according to him “we have all been missing” when listening to “real” hip hop. While the Clan is going through its own turmoil, trial and tribulations leaving fans in suspense for new music, Joe Young and Legendary Beatsmith ‘Dame Grease’ came together to build a piece of music that will stand the test of time. “Invincible Armour” is the outcome. The Album features the Wu Tang elite, Method Man, Raekwon, Cappadonna, Inspectah Deck, Masta Killa & more.
This Album is a testimony of Celebration, bringing the sound back that made ‘Enter the 36 Chambers‘ & ‘Wu Tang Forever’ arguably the best albums the Clan put out.
During his stop in London after touring in Europe supporting Ghostface Killah, he sat down with our very own DJ Marxsi to talk about how he plans to take on the hip hop world in his own way and what makes him stand out from the rest.
Check him out on The Weekend Mix with DJ Marxsi on Saturday 21st October from 4-7pm
