Joosik Energetik (ESSENTIAL West Coast Underground)

Joosik surfaced long before the arrival of the internet so I’m not sure if his influence or critically ill debut Bar Codes on Tenni Shoes was as resounding in other parts of country. But I know the West Coast was hyped. His tape was one of the group of firsts that shifted how I thought about rap. Shot from Southern California to Northern California in the blink of an eye. My DivShare is fuckin’ up right now so uploading the tape in question isn’t going to happen. However, you can hear most of it hear. Maybe it’s just me, but I think the overall oddball nature is standing the test of time.

Here’s a joint from Bar Codes on Tenni Shoes:

The audio definitely leaves a lot to be desired, but you get the gist of it. Is it plausible they can take what they did there and transfer it into a studio and onto a record? Fingers crossed.

I caught this guy live by happenstance and was extremely impressed with his routine and crowd mastery. Beyond the mixtape cuts and other features I’ve heard him on, I’m at a loss when it comes to providing information on his possible future endeavors. But definitely checking. On the reg.
