He’s also declaring war on “Mumble Rap,” and aims to create an atmosphere that will allow the listener to hear a refreshing change of hip-hops sound and delivery with his new project.
According to Joe the song is meant tobe a challenge, “’Crack Babies’ is a record about the times we are in as far as hip-hop is concerned. It’s just me asking myself about what is happening in hip-hop. Nowadays it seems like it’s cool to promote that you’re a junky. The young generation is lost in the sauce. And the Industry is promoting that type of stuff to brainwash the youth. So I wanted to go against thatwith this record. This whole project is completely anti everything that’s trendsetting today. Wu Tang is for the Children”
