Joey Price

Joey Price was born on February 26th, 1988. He grew up on Chicago ’s Westside, living in a house with his parents and grandparents. A few years later he and his parents relocated to the West Suburbs where he attended private school until the age of fourteen. Before graduating from grade school his grandmother passed away. He was asked to speak at his grandmother’s funeral, but he did not know what to say. The only thing he could think of was poetry. He wrote a poem about his life experiences with his grandmother and after he was done he instantly felt better. Years past and he continued writing poetry about life issues that concerned him. Eventually he perfected his skills in poetry and his friends told him he should turn his poems into raps. He was finally confident enough in his skills to announce himself as a solo artist. His songs touch on so many subjects in life, and they do not follow the trends of commercial rap. He is influenced by artists he feels he can relate to such as Lupe Fiasco, Common, Kanye West, and Andre 3000. Joey Price is full of energy, creative and prolific.
