Born December 10th in Flint, Michigan, Greg Joslin lived the first month of his life in an incubator. Although the odds of surviving were against him, Greg amazingly pulled through and went home with his parents.
Flint, Michigan, globally known for the rise and fall of General Motors, and with one of the highest crime rates in America, is where Greg lived for the majority of his life.
Greg’s family decided to leave Flint and move to Raleigh, North Carolina hoping to find a better quality of life. At the age of 12, Greg started listening to hip-hop regularly, writing raps, and freestyling in school to entertain his friends and pass time. Shortly afterwards, Greg would start getting into trouble more, and focusing on school less. He also grew more rebellious towards his parents. His grades fell, his parents separated, and at the age of 17 Greg moved back to Flint, to live with his Grandmother.
On returning to Flint, Greg’s only concern was money and girls. He had already given up on school and was familiar with the drug trade. Greg would spend the next 2 years bouncing from house to house, working full time and hustling to support himself. Two years later he had earned enough money to purchase a home studio, which influenced his decision to focus more on his music, and less on hustling.
He later met up with local rap artists and ClockWerk Musick founders, Shemy and Kevin Clouds. Greg would soon sign under ClockWerk Musick and record multiple promotional mixtape tracks.

He has just released his brand new single, Soul Searchin’ featuring Bojo.The single produced by The Graduates, was mixed and mastered by Bernard Terry of Area 52 Studios.
From the first time you hear Greg’s lyricism and confidence; you know his going to be in the game for a while to come yet. I have listened to his previous album, Definition of Greatness, Pt. 1: The Come Up, and I must say that Soul Searchin’ is amongst his best work yet. He has continued to get better and is among the top lyricist’s in the independent hiphop game.
The production on the single is also amazing throughout, as Greg continues to produce songs that are for hustling, working-out, reflection, girls, parties, life, and everything in between. I could tell from the first bar that I was going to be obsessed with this single, it has that appeal: the beat, the flow, the aggression, and the hooks. Soul Searchin’ got 3 repeats right of the bat on my player!
Greg Joslin shows us that his time of thinking has really put him in a place where he understands life in a way, that he can give it to us with such great music. The way he puts his words together is always tight. He never drops a wack verse and can get in deep about life, telling stories with morals without sounding corny or forced.
Greg’s flow is definitely on point, on Soul Searchin’, as he rips the beat effortlessly. The choruses are definitely catchy too, with Bojo chipping in to add an even deeper shine to an already gleaming rap gem. Pick this one up!
