Joseph Kaufman (@joey_guapo) is an aspiring DJ from Lousiana, US. He adores listening to music and in fact, listens to it several hours a day. On YouTube, Joey has a page called “Jamz with Joe”, and he also aims to become a DJ for a music show on YouTube. He was born on the 16th of June and he is also a U.S Army Veteran.
Apart from music, Joey also loves football. His very first post on Instagram was about his joy and pride that his team, the Louisiana State University Tigers (LSU Tigers) won the 2019 College Football National Championship. He even has a poster of the LSU Tigers 2019 National Champions up on his wall!
On his Instagram, Joey has more than 14 thousand followers! He started posting actively since January this year, but ever since the coronavirus outbreak spread to the US, he started self-isolating even before the lockdown and began posting regular updates on Instagram via IGTV videos. Every few days, he puts videos of him enjoying some food and drinks (and even some joints!) on his couch while playing new and different music, and the LSU Tigers 2019 championship poster hangs proudly on the wall behind. He’s very energetic and lively in all the videos, lip-syncing along to the songs and also dancing side by side.
Nowadays he advises his followers to take the pandemic seriously and to stay home and stay safe. He urges people to try to find peace and relaxation in these uncertain times by doing whatever they enjoy. In his case, he finds his peace listening to music. While he listens to different genres of music, his favorite genre is Hip-Hop/Rap. He believes that music is the highest form of art as it allows people to express the way they feel and tell their life stories in so many different styles; it is a great escape. According to him, while listening to music, the listener should try to understand the uniqueness of the lyrics and beauty of the beat. He even made a list of the top 5 rappers according to him and Drake tops the list, followed by Wayne, Gates, Future, and Nicki Minaj.
He is a very optimistic person and loves to spread smiles, positivity, and gratefulness. He often posts positive content for his followers and encourages people to stop spreading hatred and negativity because no one is perfect. He is religious as well and believes that there is a higher power that has blessed him with a good life and allows him to live to see another day. He reminds his viewers to count their blessings, cherish and appreciate what they have, and to always be grateful because there are a lot of people on Earth that are not as privileged and have it worse than them. Not only this, but he also posts a lot of motivational content in the captions of all his IGTV videos.
He often posts pictures of the food as well as shows his love for his family and friends by posting videos of them on his Instagram story. He loves the festive season of Christmas and the annual Mardi Gras celebration in New Orleans, Louisiana.
On YouTube, he has multiple playlists that his listeners can listen to according to their moods. He has a “Classical Hits” playlist and an “Old School” mix, which have old hit songs that bring back good vibes. The playlists feature the Weeknd, Madonna, Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake, Maroon 5, Kanye West, Usher, Trey Songz, and more. He also has playlists titled “Just Relax”, “Just Press Play”, and “Just Trust Me”, which have an eclectic mix of songs that fit the vibes of the titles of the playlists.
