Hip-Hop Artist, Performer, and Rising Local Star Josh Sallee is an ordinary kid from Bixby, Oklahoma with some pretty amazing talent. He is an advertising major at the University of Central Oklahoma. Josh was an outstanding athlete, making All-State in golf and basketball in high school, but music is his real passion. He is a hip-hop artist and performer, and rising local star, shocking hundreds with his amazing free style ability. As a teen, hip hop and free style rap took a hold of his attention and he has been motivated to perform ever since. Josh got his big start as a performer after finishing runner-up in a talent contest consisting of over 1,000 musicians. Since then, Josh has been writing music and posting videos of his work on YouTube. The number of views on his music videos sky-rocketed within a year, and he began receiving gig offers from all kinds of venues. Josh has now done several shows, including work with some wellknown artists such as Paul Wall, Cypress Hill, Mickey Avalon, Bizzy Bone, Kidz in the Hall, and 88 Keys.  Josh’s music is good, free of profanity and derogatory terminology. When we asked him why he chooses to keep his music clean, he simply replied, “Because I feel like people only use curse words as fillers in their music. I want my work to be completely original.” Josh’s music sends out a message to adolescents and young adults saying that, “We college kids need to do it!” This represents self-motivation to go out and fulfill your dreams. Josh said that’s what inspired him. He felt like he could do it and he went for it. Josh will be releasing his new debut single on YouTube this month, which is a remix to Mike Posner’s “Cooler than Me.” His first debut album is also coming out this summer, titled “Honor Roll Accolades.” Josh will be performing at several events this summer.
