Joyner Lucas

Rapper Joyner Lucas was born in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1988 and developed his love for hip-hop at an early age. When he was just seven, he was already writing his own rhymes under the moniker "G-Storm}, and would go on to collaborate with his uncle (who was just a few years older than him) on various musical projects. In his teens, he briefly worked under the stage name "Future Joyner", but decided to work under his birth name in 2012, after rapper Future rose to fame. In 2015, having already created original work for most of his life, Lucas’ first solo mixtape, Along Came Joyner, was released. It featured the breakout single and video “Ross Capicchioni,” a song inspired by near-death shooting of a Detroit teen of the same name, told from the perspective of both the victim and the shooter. Several more successful singles followed, and in 2016, Lucas signed to Atlantic Records. His debut album, 508-507-2209, was released in the summer of 2017. ~ Fred Thomas
