From Childhood Piano Lessons to International Performances: The Musical Journey of Joseph Word

1.What first got you into music?

Well, since I was young I have always been surrounded by music  from my grandparents to my parents and kinfolks , when I was seven my grandma had a piano in the house she saw me playing on it. One day and right then she put me into piano lessons. Going into teenage years I was involved in choir when I was in grade school went to state and won 🏅 it was something about music that made me become the artist I am today ! 

2.Who inspired you to make music?

My mother listens to her music such as the four Tops , the temptation, Marvin Gaye , Sam cook , Mississippi mass choir, a lot of gospel and R & B, Luther vandross , and Freddy Jackson , The whisper’s   that list can go on and one. lol now my uncle Cornelius and my uncle Anthony, he was a musician  now my other uncle Cornelius he has till this day a big album collection with everything I mean everything also  I follow in their  footsteps and took my craft and made it into something that is my style and my signature! 

3.How would you describe the music that you typically create?

Versatile music ! meaning whatever rhythm and beat formats rather it’s a west coast or east coast , even a down south beat I can get on and kill it ! 

4.What is your creative process like?

I will listen to a beat for days to hear the breakdowns , the instrumental that was used and feel the vibe of what the production process that was taken for that beat to become alive for me to come up with a concept that will make that beat even better for that moment! 

5.Who would you most like to collaborate with?

That list is long 😂😂 does it have to be one individual?  Well. It would be Jada kiss, and The Lox’s, Big Krit, Dave East, eight ball and MJG , xzibit , would have been nipsey hussle, Kendrick Lamar  , DJ Quick  , Joyner Lucas, OutKast, Redman & Method Man , 2pac & biggie if they was alive , curren$y, Larry June  J Cole and  Eminem, Snoop Dogg! E40 

6.If you could go open a show for any artist who would it be? Again I can’t limit that to just one ! 😂🤷🏽‍♂️  Jay z yeah I know that big but why not go big. Like the saying goes, go big or go home and I have been on this journey way too long to not go big ‘ ya dig ! 

7.What is one message you would give to your fans? No matter what,  you have a dream ! Hold on to that  dream and go for it and also being authentic goes a long way than faking it until you make it. ! 

8.Do you sing in the shower? What songs?

 That’s hard because my playlists are bi polar lol in a good way it can go from 2pac to U2. From Metallica and guns and roses to   And anything in between 😂😂  and I can’t answer that. It depends on my mood on that part ! 

9.Where have you performed? Well I performed at this past Super Bowl that in Phoenix Az with 2hot Radio  In June of 2023 I had the opportunity to performed in Saint Paul Minnesota in a showcase hosted by my guy Jimmy Donn 

Do you have any upcoming shows? To be honest, not at the moment! But I’m open for suggestions!

10.How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business? In my opinion it has made it better and worse. Why do I say that ? Well when I started my music journey I was ready to hit the ground running meaning  being the street team. Printing flyers. CDs and sell them out the trunk ! Now because of the internet it made it easier to market your music and get you heard faster and all over the world. You still have to put in the work, it is just easier now and you have the power and more platforms to place your music as an artist! New and old ! 

11.What is your favorite song to perform?

Mr Word, I can’t lie, and hostile takeover , and my new joint. I’m the Real Deal ! 

12.What’s next for you?
