IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What city and state are you from?

JO $AUCE: I am a proud born and raised Seattle resident.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What is your music background?

JO $AUCE: I started out a fan of alternative rock. Being from Seattle, I had a younger uncle in end family that was a part of a rock band and into some of the local festivals around town. Once I heard rap music I became a fan. I could relate to the energy and message because I am from those environments.

I started out producing and making instrumentals for local artist around our hip-hop scene. I eventually began creating my own mixes and singles. Now I own and operate my own indie label, and I manage many artists across the states as well as working with big names in the business.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Why do you want to record and release your own music?

JO $AUCE: At first I must say I took it as just a fun thing to do. With all the fan outreach and seeing how easy it is to conduct business and build brands, I definitely started to take it more seriously.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are your songs about?

JO $AUCE: Most of my material is about the gritty life of an ex drug offender. I also talk about the real side of the trap that they leave out in most rap songs you hear today which glorify negative activity. I try to be more poetic and helpful to our urban community and have fun with the art.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Who is your fan base directed towards?

JO $AUCE: Mostly males 18-50yrs from young hip teens to old neighborhood kings. My music touches a lot of people in different places.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Who are your musical influences?

JO $AUCE: I use the play the guitar, drums, trumpet, and more. I have always been a fan, but once hip-hop music came around I was all in. My story is relative to artist like Master P, Tupac, E 40, Gucci Mane, Juvenile and more.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: How would you describe your music to people?

JO $AUCE: Definitely gritty, street music. We call it trap music it was created by some of the artist I work with. We all started from “the trap” so to speak.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What makes you stand out from other artists?

JO $AUCE: Unfortunately most of things I speak about in these songs are true to highest extent. I speak about situations where people could possibly lose lives or be incarcerated, but I try to stay positive and give a good message.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are some upcoming projects you are currently working on?

JO $AUCE: I’m currently working on my next 2 projects “Welcome2pillville” &”Pharmacy Tekz 2: M.D.M.A.” I may swing a few mixtures in between this year, and look out for my single “Mind Gone” dropping on Itunes very soon…

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

JO $AUCE: I been working hard at building my “Boss Money Brand.” I am also working on developing the artists on that platform. I am also working on securing a budget that will allow growth for myself as an artist, as well as helping Seattle bring out our music scene and urban community. In ten years I hope to be half way a billionaire.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: How can your fans access your music and contact you?

  52. this artist has a lot of material out & mixtapes sound like albums cant wait to see what happen with that budget behind em

  53. an artist with they own label, good music & attitude is hard to find these days , most these cats dreamin on big budgets and Hollywood shit

  54. once I got hip to this article I found jo is on a lot of sites and has some dope work this is obviously a great platform for the artist

  55. I like how he pointed out artist glorifying negativity but not giving info on how to stay out of the traps a lot of artist try to make it look cool or something
