Joe Black is a very street orientated lyricist. His lyrics are often very graphic, as he talks about his trails and tribulations growing up in Islington. He has a certain way with words that keep the listener interested in what he has to say. Joe Black started out emceeing to speed garage in 1998.

He attended the music workshop at George Orwell School which was ran by Heartless Cru’s DJ Fonti. He started rapping to Hip Hop in 2000 whilst doing a prison sentence. However, he didn’t start taking it seriously until his good friend Felony introduced his to his cousins, Real Gees. It was at the Real Gees studio where people started to take notice of him. He recorded eight tracks at his first recording session. Together with Real Gees, he went on to produce 2004’s Pedal Bike Diaries. He went on to appear on the Hottest Mixtape of 2006, Mashtowns S.P.O.R.T.S. VOL 1. That further solidified his name as a promising lyricist. After a few collaborations with some local artists he received another prison sentence. He was released in September 2007 and immediately got to work with his cousin Red. He recorded his second Mixtape, Business As Usual. He released the Business As Usual just before Christmas 2007. It is currently in stores across London. Joe Black released Certified on the 1st of September 2008 in conjunction with Ruthless Recordz. That CD is available at Ruthless Recordz and all other good record shops.

Joe Black went on to release another Mixtape King of the Underground in February 2010 and has since performed with some of the biggest names in the music scene right now (Rick Ross, Giggs, K Koke, Benny Banks, Hunt, Squeeks and Propane). He recently releaed the very well received mixtape project 'Realionaire.'
