About Joey Trap:
Born in New York to Puerto Rican and African American heritage, Joey Trap (Take Risks and Prosper) is a promising young talent in rap whose sound is influenced by genre-defying artists such as Tyler, the Creator, XXXTentacion, Travis Scott and Young Thug. After moving from Harlem to San Diego at the age of 15, Joey became attracted to rap to escape the drug-dealing lifestyle he had become accustomed to. Realizing he had a knack for the art, he began producing, writing, and mixing his own raps with his closest friends. By 17, Joey publicly released a pair of catchy, breakout records, “Sesame Street” and “I Got Top In Bikini Bottom,” along with several EPs that would garner the attention of Asylum Records.
Still in 2020, Joey continues to offer infectious tracks—his latest 8-track project Wild West, aided solely by Mikey100k, showcases the range of Joey’s addictive, bouncy sound and unique skill to manipulate his voice. Ahead of two new projects anticipated for 2020, Joey Trap’s music shows promise to become increasingly vulnerable, anthemic, and urgent.
