Pacific Northwest – Christian Hip-Hop artist Jus Josef has seen 2019 get off to a great start and has exciting news to share with the CHH community as we enter the final month of the first quarter.
Coming off the release of the project ‘Keys to the Kingdom’ in 2018, Josef dropped the MJ themed single “Fadeaway” on February 8, 2019. The single has been well received and displays the new sound that Josef has been developing. The track is heavy bass, a sports-related song with futuristic sounds depicting the victory of an underdog overcoming odds while securing triumph.

About Jus Josef
Jus Josef is an independent Christian Hip Hop (CHH) artist from the Pacific Northwest, originally from Los Angeles, CA, he has lived in both Oregon and Washington state.
Josef brings a passionate and raw sound that is a gritty testimonial to the CHH culture. His music reflects the street life but points the discussion towards salvation. He has been rapping since he was a kid, finding himself battling other rappers at local parties.
When he turned 18, Josef began working on making music professionally as a way to escape poverty and depending on drug money as an income stream. His 2018 release, ‘Keys to the Kingdom’, is a message that Josef said: “was inside of me for a long time.” “I want to reach those who come from the streets that may be struggling with their walk. Also, I want to attract the lost and share the gospel with them.”
