Josh Mitchell is a 20 year old rapper/producer hailing from the Prince George’s County area of Maryland. Coming from a place more commonly known for its deeply-rooted go-go scene, Josh is determined to make a name for himself as one of the rising young artists from the DMV (D.C., MD, VA).
Though he has only been rapping since the age of 17, and producing since 19, Josh is far from being a newcomer to the game. Having already released 3 previous mixtapes, performed shows, and done music videos, he is beginning to understand what it takes to create a buzz and with his latest release, What They Want, he intends to do just that.
His influences are the everyday situations that affect the world in which we live in. Whether it be his drive to become successful, or the normal situations any college student would face. He makes it a point to include all of these aspects in his music in hopes to connect with the listeners on a personal level. Some of his biggest musical influences include Jay-Z, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Pharrell Williams, Outkast, Wale, and Young Jeezy — just to name a few.
His goal is to create good music that encourages people to follow their dreams, no matter how far-off they may seem. For him, Dreams Over Everything is more than a simple catch-phrase — it’s a lifestyle, and he won’t rest until the world understands his vision.
