5 Questions For Joe Hooker ( XXL Magazine Throwback)

5 Questions To Joe Hooker


Q: As a child did you dream of being a hook king, and if that wasn't your goal, what are you intended aspirations in the music buisness?

Being VP of A&R, I work on every album for every group at Bad Boy. I edit videos - I want to do everything, really. But basically, coming up with the hooks is just a writing skill that i have.


Q: How were you picked to do the hooks?

They call me Joe Hooker and the artists just want me on there. They already know all the work that I've done has remained in the family.


Q: Have you ever done a hook for a song or artist that you disliked?

No, not at all


Q: What's your average fee for doing a hook on a song

Can't talk about that now. The average price? I'm not sure, everyone's diffrent, you understand? Right now, I'm basically creating a whole new buisness. People might not look at it that way, but that's how i look at it.


Q: What are some of your all-time favorite hooks?

I don't know. My all-time favorite hooks are really just the stuff that i do. I've never really heard any chorus that really, really drove me crazy.
