I’m a huge fan of hip-hop,” Joe said. ” “I really went out and did everything on my part that I could do to make the best album that I can,” Joe said of his new LP, which is due September 12. “I would say it’s my best album so far. I expect it to do big things.? He plans to help it along with a tour, although dates have yet to be confirmed. “I tour pretty much every year.” he said. “I love touring because that’s the biggest appreciation that you can get, when you’re performing and someone sings it back to you.” Joe said he’s also developing an upscale men’s clothing line called J Thomas and a liquor called Sojo. “It’s part of the tequila family,” he said with a smile.
