Some people say that to liberate themselves from any burden, they must freely express themselves. For rising musician Joe Perk, there is no better way to do this than by creating and performing powerful music.
Since he was a child, the promising artist from Brooklyn, New York, had always wanted to become a famous rapper and entertainer. But, accomplishing this goal was not easy; he had experienced his fair share of setbacks and challenges. His career did not follow a straightforward path and went through a few detours. In 2012, his dream was put on hold when he joined the military.
Nevertheless, the talented young man did not stop honing his skills as a singer. In fact, during his time in service, he managed to create a buzz that landed him the spot to open for hip-hop artist A Boogie wit da Hoodie.
The fateful event ended up changing his trajectory and led him back to pursuing a career in music. Since then, he has recorded a few tracks, including “What I Like,” “Never Miss,” and “Social Distance.” He has captured the attention of music enthusiasts because of his versatility with various genres such as hip-hop, R&B, and pop.
It has been almost a year since the musician released new music. But, fans would be happy to hear that his next single, “Summer Walker,” will drop on November 21. His songs are available on all music streaming platforms.
However, aside from being a gifted rapper, what makes Joe Perk stand out is his vibrant and cheerful personality. People are drawn to him because of his infectious attitude that encourages people to grow.
On top of that, the inspiring individual actively participates in remarkable advocacies that benefit the community. Currently, he is amassing donations for the Turkey Drive that he will be doing on November 24. He will be giving away 100 turkeys to the community of Greenville, North Carolina, at the Greenville Theater Arts Center. In addition, he is doing a toy drive from November 1 to December 11 in collaboration with Unjaded Hearts to provide toys to children this Christmas.
Undoubtedly, Joe Perk is not only a multi-talented musician, but he is also an extraordinary person with a heart of gold. He provides people with hope and is a testament that hardships and challenges are essential in life’s process. He hopes that his story motivates his fans to persevere and work hard to achieve their dreams.
Committed to scaling his success, the young man has big aspirations for the future. When asked where he pictures himself down the line, he shared, “I see a growing brand. I’m manifesting Grammys, and big awards show nominations. I should be one of the leaders in changing the sound of hip-hop music. I want to expand into the executive side of things, putting artists in a position to win just like me.”
