Gary Lucas is an American hip-hop artist, poet, and lyricist. He is more popular by his stage name Joyner Lucas. A native of Massachusetts, Lucas developed a deep love for music when he was quite young. He was writing his own lyrics under the pseudonym G-Storm by the time he turned seven and began recording his music after he turned ten years old. His first collaboration was with his uncle, who was not many years older than him. Lucas later briefly made music under the pseudonym Future Joyner but stopped using it when the rapper Future gained prominence. In 2011, he released his first solo mixtape, titled ‘Listen 2 Me’, through Dead Silences record label. In the subsequent years, he put out two other mixtapes through Dead Silences, ‘Low Frequency Oscillators’ in 2013 and ‘Along Came Joyner’ in 2015, before signing to Atlantic Records. In 2017, he released his fourth mixtape, ‘508-507-2209’. Lucas has also worked on one collaborative album, ‘Workprint: The Greatest Mixtape of All Time’. In late 2017, Lucas released the non-album single ‘I’m Not Racist’, a track that garnered much attention for its controversial and race-related content.
