It’s no secret that rapper Joe Peshi’s music is deeply rooted in conveying the most intimate moments of the human experience.
While he started rapping in elementary school, Peshi hasn’t taken his foot off the gas since. It was the movie 8 Mile that inspired him.
“I was watching the movie 8 Mile,” Peshi said. “I started noticing that it was therapeutic. Every time I would write, it would take weight off my chest.”
The humble 26-year-old rapper’s dream came to life when he signed a four-year contract with 92.3’s Big Boy.
But his aspirations didn’t stop there.
After his contract ended, Peshi released his first project titled “Alone” then just a year later he dropped “Days Before”.
From that point on, the grind has continued for the young promising rapper.
“For as long as I can remember, this has been the only thing I’ve ever wanted to do,” Peshi said.
Peshi is collaborating on two mixtapes expected to release late November with Richie Makin Mullah out of South Central, California and his own artist Chicago Rapper Dae Dot.
The Persian rapper also started his own label titled “FINAO” which stands for failure is not an option. His debut album featured some of the industry’s hottest artists, including Waka Flocka, Bow Wow, Rich the kid, Ab Soul and others.
“FINAO” has had some success as it sold 10k copies in the first week. Just a year later, Peshi released “FINAO vol. 2″ and is getting ready to drop “FINAO vol. 3”, which is highly anticipated with all the hard work put in.
“I’m working on my third album,” Peshi said. “I’m getting ready to put these show dates together and get on the road and travel.”
With his infectious beats and hooks that keep the listener coming back for more, Peshi has added some visuals for his songs, dropping five music videos in the past month alone.
Peshi’s music echoes influences from some of the greats like Nipsey Hussle and Lil Wayne, in which he deeply idolizes.
“Nipsey and Wayne are my top two,” Peshi said. “Nipsey because he was a real street dude and he really came up by himself. That means a lot to me. I grew up on Lil Wayne and I still look at him as the best rapper until this day.”
If there’s one thing you should live by, it’s to never stop chasing your dreams. Peshi is taking pride into doing just that.
