“I’m just trying to make more of a change than a dollar in pennies”

With lyrics like this it’s no wonder why local rapper Joie Kathos doesn’t think she has anything to prove and instead has a lot to share with the world. In the way Kathos combines rapping and dancing you would think that you’re watching the offspring of Left Eye and Big Daddy Kane whenever she performs.

Two years ago, Kathos dropped The Unmarked Mixtape, which created a huge following for her in Philadelphia. She even won a Philly Hip Hop award last year for “Best New Female Artist.” But besides the awards, buzz, and a dope mixtape, what makes Kathos amazing is her lyrical ability. Female rappers don’t often get enough of a spotlight to show off their ability as not only an artist but as an MC. What’s great about Joie is that she’s gotten a plethora of recognition at a young age and she’s only going to get better as she gets older.

As of now Kathos is working on a new project and is planning on releasing it sometime this fall. Check out her song “Gone” below and you’ll see that Joie Kathos was born to be an entertainer.
