To call him incredible would be understatement,to refer to him as magnificent, would be an insult,his stature far surpasses the credibility of such statements that most individuals would be complimented by. However,when your Darius Stanley b.k.a Joe Gator a.k.a Captain Hook you are the industry compliment,meaning that the industry is flattered by your presence,and why would it be any other way? Joe Gator is the ultimate industry threat and his presence is strong enough that even the sun itself can't compete with his shine.

Jazze Pha (Universal), “Boyfriend Girlfriend” C-Side ft Keisha Cole(Universal), “American Superstar” FlorRida ft. Lil Wayne (Atlantic), “Come Come” Dem Franchise Boys ft.

Joe Gator left Chicago and found himself in Atlanta,here he would be in a new environment with new people, and new of which would lead him to meet Kenny Kold,who would introduce him to his cousin Bo Q and as fate would have have it..Joe Gator would be third founding member of the Atlanta based trio CSIDE..CREATIVE SUPERB INDIVIDUALS DOMINATING ENTERTAINMENT..quite often referred to as a male TLC.....C Side made My Space history with their chart topping hit "My Space Freak" ft Jazze Pha written by Joe Gator which moved over 60,000 units independently.
