Listen to Joe Nance, Stagelight’s Artist of the Month!

Open Labs music fans may remember California rapper Joe Nance from last year’s Stagelight Monthly Music Contest II. Joe’s memorable style of hip-hop earned him and his team Avid Roots Entertainment with some serious exposure after winning the Linkin Park month 7 contest. Now, almost 2 years later, Joe Nance is back and ready to take it up a notch with a brand-new song called “My Melody Pt. 2.”

Joe’s smooth flow is intelligent and Avid Roots’ production has a timeless feel to it without sounding throwback. In a time when a lot of rappers seem to be jumping on the latest trends and moving away from the traditional sound of hip-hop. It’s great to know that there are people coming up like Joe Nance who take their art seriously and strive to carry on the fundamentals that hip-hop was built on. “My Melody Pt. 2” is a song that has a lot of artist references from lyrics to album titles that have inspired Joe throughout the years. Listen and follow Joe Nance and Avid Roots today! We think you’ll dig them.
