Joe Jack / Bio

To my future fans and haters,

I’m writing this to inform you to my motivation for making music. In early September 2011 I was released from custody from the Idaho Department of Corrections after serving nearly nine months. Your probably asking yourself what the f**k was I doing in Idaho? Well I was arrested in mid December of 2010 and charged with Trafficking Marijuana 5 to 25 pounds. Bond was set at $100,000 and I was held in the Kootenai County Jail in Coeur D’Alene, Idaho pending trial. Being that I didn’t have $100,000 sitting around, I had to deal with the fact that I was stuck over a thousand miles away from my loved ones. My life changed from that point on. You can never understand losing everything until you’re placed in a 6 by 9 cell facing a serious felony. I was facing a mandatory minimum of 3 years and up to a maximum of 15 years in prison and $50,000 fine. Very early in life I accepted that if I do the crime I gotta do the time. The way I came up snitching is NEVER A OPTION to get out of a situation I put myself in. Like Jeezy says “real niggas do real things”. So I accepted the situation I was in like a man with my head up waiting for my day in court. I sat in county jail about 3 months, then the day before trial I received a visit from my so called lawyer. He was there to inform me that the prosecutor had a plea deal on the table to avoid going to trial. The deal was that I plead guilty to Possession of Marijuana over 4 ounces and recieve a sentence of 0 to 3 years in prison. I countered back with a deal that I receive the same sentence but be allowed to participate in a 90 day treatment program at the CAPP facility, which is a private medium security prison run by Corporate Corrections of America (CCA) which is located outside of Boise, Idaho. I was told that if I successfully complete the program I would get probation instead of prison time. The prosecutor agreed then I was sent to the program. About 5 months later I completed the program successfully and was placed on felony probation for 3 years and was allowed to interstate compact my probation back to Nebraska. So here I am today on The Yellow Brick Road in pursuit of my dreams. I got my paperwork right and founded Game Spittin Entertainment in the spring of 2012. I spent 6 weeks in the studio writing and recording The Yellow Brick Road. I put my heart and soul into this project. But I wanna make it clear I AM NOT A RAPPER. I’m a hustla who happens to rap. When you’ve lived the life I lived it’s easy to make music about my life. Every song on The Yellow Brick Road is a detail glimpse into my personal life. This isn’t based on a true story; this is my REAL life. Love it or hate it this is reality music in its rawest form. I take nothing away from away any artist that tells you someone else’s story. But one thing for sure is I am like no other music artist in the music industry today. I refuse to talk about things I don’t have firsthand knowledge of. Why lie in my music when my life is so REAL. When I make a song I can honestly say I’ve been there, done that for REAL. I wonder how many rappers can honestly say that with their music and have the rap sheet and/or street cred to back their music up??? For me I have nothing to lose by doing music when I’ve already lost everything. Right now I’m on the bottom so all I can do is look up. That’s why I’m out here trying to get it on The Yellow Brick Road. HIP HOP AIN’T DEAD!!! It’s only getting started. There’s a new era in hip hop… and it starts with GAME SPITTIN ENTERTAINMENT.

Sincerely yours,

Joe Jack
