Life and career
Joeystarr is from a family originating from the French overseas department of Martinique. In 1985, he joined the military at Baden-Baden, « 19 months of hell », an experience which he raps about in his album Authentik. After the army, he wandered the streets, sleeping in subways and alleys. He discovered hip-hop, and the latter changed his life.
During his time on the streets, he met another aspiring rapper, Kool Shen, who was also born in Saint-Denis. In 1988 they formed the group Suprême NTM alias NTM. When the first single came out in 1989, he could not cash the check, since he could not provide an address or a bank account. The group achieved record sales with their four albums, but split in 1998. It had a comeback as announced on March 13, 2008.
