Lyrical Joe, whose real name is Joseph Gamor, discusses the complexities of the music industry openly and honestly on 3FMSunrise.
He characterizes the industry as potentially toxic.
The well-known rapper emphasizes how important it is for creatives to figure out what suits them best and purposefully steer their careers in that way.
During the interview, Lyrical Joe reflects on the multifaceted nature of the industry, asserting, “It’s a toxic space, where love, hate, support, and smiles are all intertwined. This is a space where someone may adore you today and detest you tomorrow. Some individuals thrive amid the negativity, making it work for them when positivity doesn’t. The key is to identify what resonates with you and embrace it.”
In 2011, LJ participated in the popular African TV show ‘’X-FACTOR’’.
He was the only rapper who represented Accra-Ghana in the competition, unfortunately, he didn’t win, but made it to a remarkable stage in the competition.
His exit from the competition didn’t end his dreams but rather helped him better craft his act. LJ has since then released a dozen of songs, to wit; Heart Breaker, Fork & Knife, I dey feel u, I’m Sick, 3-kings, Bowtie, Alright and recently released Tina.
