BROADWAY JOE BAGGS
Broadway Joe Baggs has been cutting his teeth in the streets and on the scene since 1998. Given his name by mentor Nel Brooks he was encouraged to engage the battle scene and invade any and every cipher he could to showcase his skillset and build a reputation.
By 2005 he was apart of the group The Society of Invisibles who's self-titled release on babygrande records is considered by many across the globe to be an underground classic. Years of touring and sharing the stage with every name under the sun has brought him to the space he inhabits now. The West Coast OG & LoLife currently cohosts Gem Work Radio every Friday and has multiple musical projects set for release in 2023.
MC Random is at an undisclosed location in El Monte, CA. And between freestyling over beats from Chop Lui, he shares his passion for Hip-Hop with me and is reminiscing on a watershed moment for him while witnessing a Hip-Hop show from over thirty years ago.

And while his name may suggest otherwise, he is very precise in his approach to the art of rap. His purpose is not only to entertain but inform, educate, and contribute, "Random" speaks more to his variety as an emcee, as opposed to lack of
He has lyrics like a poet, punchlines like a battle rapper, and bars like a songwriter. Additionally, his alter-ego "Ron Dickles" gives him a means to be funny (but not corny) with a genre of music that generally does not get recognition for its sense of humor. And the conceptual creativity
behind something like 2019's A Better Way is proof that his respect for Hip-Hop history and way of making music sets him aside from his contemporaries.
