Who said Hip-hop was dead?? When you have artist like Joe spitting raw raps over ill beats!

With the success of his previous releases, Amsterdam based Joe Kickass sets out to create a worthy follow-up to his ‘Mind Joe’ legacy. It’s been a long time coming and now his second full length album, ‘The Average Joe’ is finally here. Named in celebration of the millions of unique stories that make every individual the person they are, this record gives a little more insight into the man behind the mic. The past years leading up to this release have been somewhat of a rollercoaster ride, with a lot of things happening in Joe’s personal as well as artistic life. All of the different resulting emotions and contemplation are reflected in the diversity and maturity of his sophomore LP.

Besides crafting his own beats, Joe enlisted a small army of talented musicians to contribute to this album. From the nu-soul sounds and vocals of Sacha Vee, via the dusty warmth of Vinyl Frontiers, to the boombap vibes of Polish veterans O.S.T.R. and DJ Haem, just a few of the influences and collaborators on ‘The Average Joe’. With trustworthy partners in crime, ‘Killing Skills‘ as the executives, every track is produced into perfection. With this second LP, released on gold colored vinyl, Joe is taking Project: Mooncircle back to it’s legendary hip hop roots. The Average Joe ‘kicks ass’, indeed.

Some of our personal favorite tracks include “Feel Alright”, “Just So You Know”, “The Right Melody”, “Gardener”, and “Shadow Knows” ft. Sacha Vee.
