Joey Atilano
Basic Information
Location:Ontario, CA
Birthday:Apr 1
Description:Now, a decade since he first picked up a mic, 60 East has a string of accolades
which include the Hottest Up and Coming Artist in the West Coast of 2011 by
KRUSH Magazine and the Best Hip Hop Artist of 2014, voted by the readers of
IEWeekly. Aside from official awards, the Ontario emcee has shown that hard
work can pay off after he campaigned for a full year for the chance to perform at
The Paid Dues Festival 2013, which proved successful, seeing him added to a bill
alongside Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore, Talib Kweli amongst others. The rapper
also performed 3 dates of The Vans Warped Tour alongside Linkin Park and has
founded his own tour, in partnership with the First Dirt collective he is a
member of. The Declaration of Independents is an effort to build unity within the
independent Hip Hop scene and became an official partner of The Indie
Entertainment Summit, the main sponsor of the tour.

More recently, 60 East has been working with artists like Blu and Skyzoo as he
readies the release of his "10,000 Hours" album, expected to drop this year. The
LP comes off the back of a critically acclaimed mixtape, in which he collaborates
with the producer Omega. The initial instalment of "The Freeway Series"
attained worldwide acclaim, predominantly as a result of the topical "Andy's
Song" which won awards from Black Truth Magazine and ChannelPick.
Be sure to keep up to date with 60 East's movements in the coming months and
beyond, because given his impressive work rate and awe-inspiring ability when
it comes to music - it's only a matter of time before he builds on his sublime
success so far, and becomes the next big thing in independent Hip Hop.
