In February 2015, The Jacka was shot and killed by an unidentified gunman in Oakland, California.
When asked about how he was working with The Jacka, Joe replied:
”He has been my boy for a while. We just never talked about music so he never knew I rapped.”

By the late 90s, Blow had featured on various underground mixtapes. Furthermore, he was introduced to Metabeats, Cervantis, Cesto, and Skamma.
Interestingly. he didn’t start rapping for money. He explained:
”Yeah, it was more like a hobby to me. I had been rapping making songs, just doing it cause I like doing it. I love music, hearing it.”
”Honestly, the music I was hearing was watered down, so I stopped listening to a lot of music. I could only listen to a few people. So I really just started making music myself, and I was like man I might as well get into this. I could do it, let me go ahead and do it.”
In 2010, Blow lent his talents to the now infamous DJ Stagga track ‘Genik Riddim’ on DJ Starkey’s Slit Jockey Records.
In 2011, he released his first album titled “You Should Be Paying Me.”

- One Mob (2015);
- Let It Blow (2015).
He had several concerts in the United Kingdom. Joe said:
“They show a lot of love out there, they love our culture in general. Not just the music but everything about it; from the weed we smoke, to how we dress, everything.”
He added later:
”They support it a lot and they follow, so it’s nothing but love every time I go.”
