StenJoddi is an enrolled member of the Mvskoke Creek Nation Tribe of Oklahoma. He is one of the most prolific Underground Native HipHop Artist out today.
StenJoddi became a fan of music early in his childhood he was influenced by the Rock & Roll & Country Music constantly being played from his Mother & Fathers home & car stereos, you know, being raised in Oklahoma. But by the age of 10/11 yrs old the music that truly caught his attention was HipHop, the struggle, the stories, the beats, the fashion, the art, just the culture as a whole totally hooked young Joddi with the first tape cassette played. He couldn't believe that he finally found something he could relate to, being a city raised Native aka 'Urban Native', the lyrics the MC's on the tapes were spittin' seemed a whole lot more relatable than the country & rock music he was raised on.
Soon after that he began to created a burning desire within himself to craft his own lyrics & style. StenJoddi soon found himself writing & spittin' his own dope lyrics to hiphop beats. Using his clever wordplay, his storytelling abilities, along with his effortless flow & distinct tone he started to amaze & later as he elevated his craft he really started to set himself apart from his musical peers & other rappers around him, as well as the crowded up internet full of so called "rap" artists becoming YouTube famous nation wide. Even more importantly, StenJoddi has combined his Native Culture & his love for the HipHop culture to give a Voice to a unique struggle, an untold story that HipHop & America has actually been blind to for a very long time...growing up & surviving as a Native!!!
In the last few years StenJoddi has been breaking Native Stereotypes left & right by making his mark in the Hip-Hop Community. With his countless release of singles & Mixtapes SoundCloud he has gained a steady following of fans that love his outlook on life and music. "TattooMuzik2" was his debut album produced by ShawkCityBeats back in 2013 & since has gotten huge recognition from underground critics & fans nation wide. His 2nd full length Album 'TattooMuzik3' was released in 2015 & has become an instant Classic everywhere it's heard. The album also has some of the sickest features from some of the dopest artist & producers in the underground industry. His latest Album 'Concrete Warrior' released early 2016 is most likely his most personal album, not only because of his lyrics but because it absolutely has no Features of any other rappers, it does feature a singer 'Harley Love' on one very personal record called 'I'm a Loser' which hits home with a lot of his fans. The album is full of Truth & Substance & has little wiggle room on what StenJoddi stands for. It speaks on religious views, political & social views, & he talks about the idea & the struggles behind the journey for success, this album is produced by some of the best producers He's ever had the pleasure of working with. But don't take my word for it go grab All three of these albums today, they are all available on iTunes now.
2016....As the #StandingRock #NoDAPL situation grew & gained awareness & momentum StenJoddi found himself very personally, spiritually, & emotionally engulfed in the situation. As should everyone that's concerned about Mother Earth especially Indigenous People world wide by seeing the devastating atrocities happening to Sacred Lands & Water Protectors on the front lines. The brutality of the Militarized Police Force against Water Protectors is & was a travesty. It is now the fighting force in a spiritual awakening & guidance in his music & his everyday life. Both the prophecies tell us of a time when the Sacred Hoop is broken & the Youth start rising up against the Oppressors & against the Black Snake entity & that all Nations will come & stand together in solidarity to bring the Sacred Hoop back together & kill the Black Snake. And That time has come. It is also the motivational drive that brings the #Truth2TheYouth in His Award Winning Album 'The #7thGeneration Prophecy' now available everywhere Online. It is quite possibly the most powerful & epic album he has ever recorded. It pushes the boundaries & speaks on a lot of touchy subjects including a lot of Native related issues some may not agree with him on some subjects or may not want to talk about certain subjects but he adresses them either way. It gives everyone listening a Native perspective to the way today's society views indigenous peoples, their rights, their sovereignty & how that effects everyone spiritually, economically, & environmentally. The Album has features from some of the dopest Native HipHop Artist in the game: Joey Stylez, Chase Manhattan, Nataanii Means, Thomas X, Baby Shel, Poz Lyrix, Tall Paul, & MikeBone...& is produced by some of the most incredible producers to ever make a beat like Native Keyz & Adrian Harjo who are both featured on the album. its Available now just click HERE
