With the start of 2018 in full swing everyone’s mind seems to be on new opportunities and bettering themselves. Such is the case for Jackson, Mississippi-based emcee Jo’De Boy but not as much because of the calendar year
A life filled with trials and tribulations has led him to become a better version of himself than there has ever been and this is evident on his new project, “8: New Beginnings”.
Lined with narration from poet Amanda Furdge, the full length album takes us into the mind of Jodeci Mayfield as a person and Jo’De Boy the artist. A certain duality of struggles and victories line not only the artwork but also the music contained. Vocally Jo’De sets himself apart with a sharp flow, unique tone and a strong lyrical presence. Stream “8: New Beginnings” below as well as his short film that debuted just before the album’s release, “Lost Chapters”. The album is available on all streaming services.
