Not Now I’m Busy is a sonic journey highlighting Joyner’s masterful storytelling prowess set against captivating beats. Tracks like “Three Little Pigs” delve deep into societal issues, metaphorically addressing the history of police violence against Black individuals in America.

The album also boasts the chart-topping collaboration “Best For Me” with Jelly Roll, shedding light on the struggles of those battling substance abuse and addiction. This poignant track soared to No. 2 on iTunes’ Top Hip-Hop/Rap Songs chart and reached No. 6 on YouTube’s Trending for music.


Not Now I’m Busy serves as a testament to Joyner’s growth as an artist since his last album, “ADHD,” which debuted in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 and earned RIAA gold certification.

Excitement mounts as Joyner announces his accompanying “Not Now I’m Busy” headlining tour, spanning 24 cities and featuring special guest appearances by rappers Millyz and Dax.

The tour will include stops in major cities across the United States, such as Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, Atlanta, and Houston, as well as in Toronto, Canada. To cap off the cross-country tour, Joyner will revive Joyner Fest on June 22 at the DCU Center in his hometown of Worcester, Massachusetts.

Joyner Fest, which previously took place in November 2021 at The Palladium, saw a sold-out crowd of 8,000 and served as a platform for Worcester’s emerging artists to showcase their talent.
