Joseph Gamache was hatched in Flint, Michigan sometime during the 1980s. Joey was always a special child (mostly in the mentally challenged sense of the word). He was a class clown in school and was constantly in trouble.
His first love was rock music, but he was introduced to rap by his older sister and became corrupted instantly. He wrote his first rap at the age of 11, under the name Crazy J. At 17 he began battle rapping and eventually found success with the name Jabber Jaw. After winning 16 battles (14 in a row) at a local Flint club, he was offered a record deal with a now defunct label FrontStreet Records. After releasing several projects under the names Jabber Jaw & Jab, which were sold in FYE and featured on iTunes, he reinvented himself yet again and settled on the Joey Cough moniker.
Joey Cough's music is a blend of humor, street appeal and pure lyricism rarely offered in todays market. Inspired by legends such as Big Pun, Rakim and Tupac, Cough is versatile in his approach to song writing, yet he always places lyrical content and originality at the forefront. Opening for acts such as Rittz, Too Short and Madchild, Joey Cough's stage show is equally as entertaining as his recorded music. With album titles like "Some People's Children" and "Retard Strength" its obvious that there is something very unique about this one of a kind artist! You can find Joey Cough's music on this site and all digital retailers.
