"Brand Name"

“The Brand Name album is in a league of its own and Jovie is in a league of extraordinary lyricists. Many hip hop artists and artists in general could go to this album and treat it like a blue print. This time right here, right now I feel that Jovie has given rap music mouth to mouth. This is the type of shi* that would make Common say I’m done with movies. This Brand Name LP would make Sean Combs remember the first time he produced Juicy. The My Everything track does it for me; it’s the icing on the cake. When you have a consistent flow, fresh beats, samples, clarity and ambition throughout the whole LP; that is what makes this a great album. Brand Name is a complete album and listeners may have the hardest time trying to pick out their favorite tracks.” - G.Rich

"The New Guy"

“When receiving the Brand Name LP I felt like a kid un-wrapping the plastic off a new CD that I had just bought from my hard earned money. If you’re truly a fan of hip hop that means you have rhythm and blues down in your soul. The jazziness tracks throughout this album get you vibing no matter what mood you’re in. It’s like medicine for a headache. ” - Darryll Randle

"Unsigned Hype"

“Snoop and Dr. Dre said “ain’t nothin but a G thing” back in the day, and now Detroit emcee Jovie is saying the same thing in this smooth single and video off of his newly released Brand Name mixtape.” - Julian Michael Caldwell

"Jovie's Time"

“I ran across a video for one of the tracks featured on the project and was thoroughly impressed, It was my first time hearing the guy's music and I could appreciate it. Content and lyricism, seems like a top priority and you could never lose with that.” - Palahvi Rad

"Hard Work Pays Off"

“The homeboy Jovie got that official blue-collar Detroit work ethic when it comes to this music.” - Hustle MC


Still working on that hot first release.



Javon Missouri (born September 17, 1984) is better known by his stage name, Jovie. Born and raised on the eastside of Detroit, Michigan during the golden era of hip hop, its no question that Jovie spent a lot of time absorbing what he heard through his radio and other young talent in the neighborhood wanting to break into the music industry. Heavily influenced by the infectious sounds of many hip hop legends, Jovie spend long hours perfecting his craft which would put him the elite among his peers. His gritty and clever delivery with rhymes can easily be compared to those who paved the way for him. With his down to earth content, versatility and conversational lyrics, Jovie has honed the art story telling through his music. Jovie burst onto the scene in 2002 as an indie artist. Armed with knowledge of the music industry from countless hours of studying, networking, and learning from established artists, Jovie made it his mission to make himself known among his peers by working diligently in the studio and perfecting his craft. Jovies hard work has certainly paid off gracing the pages of many hip-hop magazines, hip-hop  blogs from UK to Jamaica including, as well as opening shows for several major acts over the years from Rick Ross to Common and headlining shows from Ohio to Atlanta and many venues in between. This clever artist is definitely blazing the trails with his signature sound and on his way to super stardom
