Joe, whose nickname is Joey Crack, recently shed some light and cleared up confusion about the moniker. The New York native said the name doesn't have to do with drugs, rather it came from a girl in his neighborhood.

"They call me Joey crack cause the crack of my a-- show whenever i stand up girls in my hood gave me the name 😂 it was never because the drug crack God is great."
