Today, "The Bag" by Syph debuted the music video, and Joe Hodges co-produced the song so I thought it was the appropriate time to release the interview as well. "The Bag" was on the show Atlanta and is one of my personal favorites.
Watch it here and read on below for the interview and A.M. CLUB x JOE HODGES exclusive photos.
Authentic, hard working, focused, talented, confident, kind hearted, loyal, passionate, a beautiful soul; there are not enough words to describe this man.
Joe Hodges is THE best music producer I know - the music he creates is the most powerful and makes you feel so many emotions.
Born and raised in Detroit and now residing in Los Angeles - three blocks down the street from me to be precise - Joe moved to LA to become a music producer. Hodges has been working with a plethora of artists in the hip-hop, pop and rap scene the past few years including Syph, P Reign, Deniro Farrar, and Pro Logic - one of OVO's main producers/engineers to name a few, but you can read more about that below and stay up to date with his new projects by following his Twitter @joehodgesmusic.
Joe Hodges is a major inspiration; a mega man muse.
