Joe Johnson, better known as Untdld, is a hip hop artist based in Philadelphia – creating music with his own personality and life experience on each track. Untdld is short for Untitled, (Untitled without the vowels because I can’t be bought). In this world people try to place labels on you, whether good or bad, and my goal as an artist is to create my own lane, sound, and ultimately move through this world without titles.
I was born and raised in Chicago and then later in Winter Haven, FL. As a kid, I would write verses and hooks with no beat, I would just go off the melody in my head and write for hours. As I got older, I kind of gave up on music because I lacked skill.
My passion returned in 2016 with a song I wrote called “Salvation”, which was received well by many. I’ve been behind the scenes working on my craft, my delivery, and overall writing.
I think that the music I have been sitting on is going to define who I am as an artist and person. I hope that everyone who hears me shakes off the negative titles that people or society may have given them and embrace who they really are.
I am Untdld!
