Juggling boastful gun raps with mature, introspective lyrics, Durham, NC, rapper Jozeemo, aka Joe Murda, journeyed from spot to place, because his family attempted, unsuccessfully, to deter him from living the harmful street life. Given birth to Joseph Murdock III in Tx, Jozeemo relocated to southside Chicago, but was relocated to NEW YORK. In Durham, NC, he discovered a clique of close friends that distributed his affinity to make hip-hop music and created a local team called Living on Barnes. Gaining an area following became simple enough for Jozeemo as he continued defeating several competitors in a variety of freestyle fights and contests kept on regional radio or in night clubs. Raleigh, NC-based 21st Information was the first ever to come searching for the rapper, but an encounter with NEW YORK underground rap darlings Small Sibling and Hall of Justus CEO Mischa “Big Dho” Burgess at an MC competition in 2003 would end up being helpful in the next years. Teamed with 21st, he released many gangsta rap road releases, specifically his Blockhuggerz mixtapes, and released his debut recording, Greazy, in 2004. Nevertheless, that summer time he was caught for firearm ownership, which violated the conditions of his probation and delivered him off to federal government prison in Western Virginia for nearly 2 yrs. Upon his launch in 2006, Big Dho authorized the hardcore MC towards the Hall of Justus imprint. Becoming a member of the alt-rap roster of the tiny Brother-affiliated team prompted several query marks in people’s thoughts, but Jozeemo ultimately felt relaxed documenting with Justus Little league producers 9th Question and Khrysis for his HOJ debut, Cry Right now L.A.F. Later on (2007).
