His ability to turn a stage into a place you can’t stop watching is something that’s become sadly rare in Hip Hop today, and stems from the fact that there is simply just nowhere else he’d rather or should be. He doesn’t have to try and win the crowd over with stunts, guest appearances, gimmicks or trends and he’s proof that Hip Hop is still capable of sending 1 man onstage with just a mic and a DJ and that he will provide the rest… and the crowds agree. Interestingly, perhaps the most impressive single quality about Joshua Gene is that he’s really at his most impressive with a pen in his hand in the studio. A dedicated, thoughtful and astoundingly skilled songwriter, Joshua Gene manages to escape the trap so many other MC’s have fallen into because his songs are every bit as genuine, honest, and passionate as he is live onstage. From socially conscious, politically charged tracks, to shockingly thought-provoking songs about Love, Family, and Life, Thesis never allows himself to forget his own voice and the reason he’s using it.
Witty, Intelligent, Truthful, Comedic, Principled and Uncompromising lyricism combine to form each line, of each verse, in each song giving fans albums with substance that will be as interesting, entertaining, innovative and important 5, 10, 15 years from now as they are today. He is one of the very best examples of what it means to be a member of the Hip Hop culture, and one of the most important and promising young artists making music in any genre today. An artist for all the right reasons with the natural gifts, self respect, intellect and passion necessary to fulfill an astounding amount of potential, Joshua Gene is a very rare kind of talent; and exactly the kind Hip Hop desperately needs now more than ever.
