BLOOD $MOKE BODY

BLOOD $MOKE BODY (formerly known as ‘Nazeem & Spencer Joles’) is an Alternative Hip Hop experience from Southside Minneapolis. A deeply rooted brotherhood between Nazeem Cunningham and Spencer Joles first took shape in middle school, comedically freestyling together and getting to know each other. From that point on, it was only a matter of time before music became a central part of their collective lives.

While attending Southwest High School in South Minneapolis, they began experimenting with different styles and genres of music, (originally intending to take shape with a ‘Rage Against the Machine’ influence) but eventually found themselves creating a foundation in Hip Hop. Thus, the duo - Nazeem and Spencer Joles was born.

As their experiences, tastes, and sound developed, the duo decided to rebrand under a new name that serves as a symbolic representation of all they’ve put into their lives and careers, but also as a community identity that speaks to the background and identities of all backgrounds and cultures: BLOOD $MOKE BODY.

BLOOD $MOKE BODY has taken influences from their past, ideas from their future, and the soul of the present to create raw, insightful stories, witty ideas, and goosebump-inducing melodies that draw you in, make you laugh, bring you to tears, or drive you to action. All while producing and engineering their own instrumentation. True musicians.
