What’s up UofA fans? Joining us today, we have a one of a kind guest. Creative consultant, musical artist, custom theme music creator, founder and CEO of ROC (Recycling Old Content) media, and the individual behind our UOFA intro theme music, Joey Yak. Growing up with music as his passion, Joey’s father had met with Ali from St. Lunatics to hear Joey rap at 9 years old. Ali expressed to Joey’s father that Joey was a star. Embracing his entrepreneurial spirit as he got older, Joey started creating theme music for influencers and sending his work out to them to get noticed. Lance and Joey swap stories of their usage of alcohol and the state of mind it caused them to enter, and how Joey’s confidence and faith has made him the best version of himself. 


Joey responds with, “It’s more glory to the story. If you’re not dead, you’re not done.”
