Husband, father, son, visual and performing artist, Joecephus Martin's world is colored brightly, and most in red, black and green. Growing up in Mississippi, a state with rich history, deep pain and great potential, Martin, a Jafrican (aka Jackson native), is a by-product of his environment.
As the hip hop artist, skipp coon, he has used his trademark black empowerment lyrics to perform nationally and internationally. He has cultivated a loyal fan base.
If he’s in a classroom, meeting with parents or council members, or on a stage, Martin has been learning and working to improve his community for the past 10 years and doesn’t foresee himself doing anything else.
