About Artist

My name is Joey Antonio Velasquez AKA Delinquent. I've been making music since I was a kid, but as a professional artist I would say since 1997. Delinquent is my stage name. I used to be in a group called, III GRAND. It consisted of three mc's (Me, Chanse One, and Non-Cents) and we were once signed to rapper/actor Ice T's production camp out in Beverly Hills, CA. Unfortunately, just five days after signing the major deal Zach 'Non-Cents' Zazueta was murdered during a celebration in Tucson. My Mother and Father are fighters and they always taught me to never give up. They drilled it into my everyday life until it became a part of my life. With that being said... I continued making music. I love and miss my best friend tremendously, but I know he is here spiritually. "III GRAND FOREVER" is on his tombstone. I feel like I have to keep making music for the both of us since someone took that opportunity away from him. That is my biggest motivator and fire that burns inside me. I know I have to accomplish this dream that Non-Cents and I shared together. I refuse to let him down. Now I am now an independent solo artist! I recently released my debut solo album WORLDWIDE via The album is titled, "Melodic Battlefield pt.1" by Delinquent. It is also available on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Rhapsody, Spotify, and cdbaby. See some of my music videos on My influences are God and my parents. Many many many reasons why I say them three, but musically... I would have to say my Father, 2pac, T.I., Notorious Big, Big L, Jeezy, Rappin 4 Tay, WC, Ice Cube, Ice T, and Michael Jackson. In 5 years I hope to be signed with a major distribution deal and have songs produced by Dre, Timbaland, Blaze, Rza, Daz Dillenger, Teddy Riley, T.I., and Jeezy. Booking: COMING SOON:
