BATON ROUGE, La.
- March 21, 2020
-- Hailing from Baton Rouge, JoshSimmons is the next big thing coming out of the state of Louisiana! He picked up the sticks and started playing the drums at 4 years old. His passion for music transitioned into freestyle rapping with his friends and older brother. By the time he was in high school, Simmons started making music and formed the creative collective Col-Der-Sac (CDS) with a few of his closest friends.
Over the years, Simmons has racked up thousands of listens on multiple music streaming platforms. In every song, the well-versed artist consistently brings something new to the table. The latest single "Pressure" gives the theme of a trap trance feel, creating a euphoric feeling for its listener.
On May 25th 2018, Simmons' life was turned upside down when his mother and brother were tragically killed in an 18-wheeler accident. He turned his pain into fuel and didn't look back, becoming the influential music artist he is today. Just six months after the accident, Simmons flew to California and competed in a freestyle competition at Complex magazine's festival Complexcon. After being judged by the late rap legend Nipsey Hussle, Simmons was handpicked and won 50 free studio hours at any studio of his choice.
