Hip-hop is all about who you know. The Notorious B.I.G. helped his childhood friends, Junior M.A.F.I.A., sign a record deal after he gained considerable recognition. For North Miami rapper, Joe Hound, it is all about where you live. Hound was lucky enough to attend high school with super-producers Cool & Dre; the beneficiaries of the right zip code and district. After leaving Miami for one year to attend Bethune-Cookman University on a basketball scholarship, Hound eventually reunited with Cool & Dre and the rest is history. On Working Wit A Monster, produced by none other, Joe Hound rhymes about his overwhelming ability to intimidate anyone coming his way. His solo debut album, Misery Loves Company, has no set release date for 2008.
