“I’M NOT A RAPPER, I’M A GAME SPITTA”, that statement alone says it all according to Game Spittin Entertainment artist Joe Jack. He emphatically proclaims that he doesn’t want to be labeled as just another rapper looking for fame and fortune. “I have so many thoughts running through my mind,” says Jack. “Without music, I wouldn’t be able to share these deep, sometimes crazy thoughts I got in my head. Music is my therapy and without it I don’t know what I would do. ”
Joe Jack’s journey to releasing his official debut single “Wonder When I Ain’t Around” produced by The Cratez, off his album “BLACK BUDDHA”, hasn’t been an easy one to say the least. Following his release from the Idaho Department of Corrections in September of 2011 up until now, Jack has written and recorded over 50 songs. With two full length albums, a compilation album, and several features written, recorded, and ready to go.
Anyone that’s disgusted with current radio content and the direction of rap should get a hold of “Wonder When I Ain’t Around”. Waiting on good quality rap music to drop is like waiting on a dripping faucet to fill the Grand Canyon these days. Long story short, if you’re a hip hop connoisseur add this to your collection as soon as possible. This napalm-loaded track is real raw and rugged, bringing some breathless verses.
Joe Jack has one of those unforgettable voices matched by his flow that never seems to lag. Despite how non-mainstream his tracks may sound tracks, it always seems like they’ve got just what it takes to blow up all over the charts. “Wonder When I Ain’t Around” is again one of those examples that straddles hardcore rap and popular music.
Jack has the perfect voice and his slow but urgent flow is nothing short of spectacular. There is no in your face shouting, Jack just lays it down solidly with a gravelly sonic style that will blow your woofers if your dare turn up the volume. The combination of great production and niceness on the mic is one that is getting rarer each day, so when the team of spitta Joe Jack and producer The Cratez step up to the plate, you better not sleep on the release.
“Wonder When I Ain’t Around” is what benchmark stuff is made of – music that expands through the urban underground, in search of new horizons, without losing its rawness and or its roots.
