Prologue Profiles

Dan takes his mic to the streets and interviews Joka / Hip-hop Artist (@therealjoka | SoundCloud) / 28th & 6th, NYC.

"My uncles they played guitar and piano and they taught us lessons and I grew up in the hip-hop era and Jay-Z was a huge influence on me and just one day I was kidding around and me and my cousins were joking and I was like, 'You know what? I'm gonna start doing this.' Because my mother used to write and I used to write with her and so the writing just came and I was just writing and doing poetry but just putting it to a beat and since 3rd grade I've been writing ever since."
"What kind of poems were you writing back then?"
"Just love poems [Laughs]. And then it started in 4th grade where I started talking about girls and like whatever I was going through at the time."
"Heartfelt."
"Yea [Laughs]."
