Joseph “BoyCott Blues” Corbie Joseph “BoyCott Blues” Corbie is a new voice in hip hop. BoyCott explains the deeper meaning behind his name and the issues that influence his rhymes and music; “at the core, boycotting is an individual act that requires great discipline and understanding the purchase power or power of participation that one owns. Although Boycotting could start as an individual act it has a greater impact when used by a community. I want to be that voice that helps educate and motivate the people. The power of the people is the unity that will be the push for change -- I am a part of that push.” BoyCott Blues was born and raised in Roxbury, MA. His heritage blends Venezuelan, Trinidadian and American traditions and cultures. He is greatly influenced by the golden era of hip hop, growing up listening to the records that his older siblings and father would play. Blues started writing and spitting rhymes and was a member of his older brothers hip hop group by the age of six. Throughout his adolescence he continued to develop his craft and has now become a polished and diverse MC.“Irony,” the highly anticipated first album from BoyCott Blues features 15 tracks showcasing lyrics that are clever, humorous and raw. The title track, “Irony,” is an ironic tale of shooting back at the gun makers whose tools of destruction have plagued many communities. His single “Da Math” featuring Consequence highlights the storytelling abilities of both artists at their best. The first single “CHKABLOAWWW,” peaked at number three on Rapnetwork. It is a certified classic that illustrates BoyCott’s distinctive sound and strong delivery. BoyCott Blues appeals to the urban essence – describing the daily struggle through a personal perspective that is vivid in the descriptive story line on the track “I Like That.” The album is a joint venture by Brick Records, Sunmoon Records, and Blues and his brother Func’s own imprint, On Thin Ice Records. Blues describes his debut as “a concept album portraying a discussion and lecture with everybody. My target audience is old and young. I have more answers than questions addressing the state of affairs worldwide.”Before the album dropped via digital download, BoyCott Blues hit the streets with a mixtape titled “R.I.P. City,” presented by Karmaloop, Sun Moon, and On Thin Ice Records, hosted by Mr. Get Familiar himself, Clinton Sparks. In three short months it has surpassed 50,000 downloads.BoyCott Blues’ future is infinite. He is an artist who is driven to craft good music that presents an inner voice of the conscious mind that listeners can connect with and relate to. http://www.onthinicerecords.comHYPERLINK "http://www.myspace.com/boycottblues"http://www.myspace.com/BoyCottbluesJoseph “BoyCott Blues” Corbie is a new voice in hip hop.
