Several years later, Joey had released many singles out in public. These songs include 1999, Rejex, America, PEEP, Enter the Void, and so much more.
Not to mention, he did this with collaborations from famous artists like the late Mac Miller & Ab-soul. Joey’s dream has come to reality as he collaborated with his idols.
Surprisingly, Joey also influences on-screen shows. He was included in television shows like Grown-ish, Mr. Robot, Power Book III, and Boomerang.
