This week Out Da Box Radio is happy to feature accomplished North Carolina Emcee “Rapper Big Pooh” of the legendary hip hop group “Little Brother”. Pooh took the time to speak to us on a range of intriguing topics, including his beginnings as an emcee, the sacrifices he made as part of Little Brother, his personality impact on the group and more. He even cleared the record on the possibility of a Little Brother reunion, expressing that him and 9th Wonder have began to reconcile their differences, but the group is still far from rejoining. As the interview progressed, Pooh gave further details on his growth as a solo artist, his recent work with T3 and Young RJ of Slum Village and his outlook on being a balanced business man/ artist (i.e. doing it for the love vs the money). I certainly enjoyed this insightful conversation with Pooh. Please take the time to listen to our interview with the man himself. Enjoy and definitely feel encouraged to spread the word.
Big Pooh lends a verse to singer/songwriter Ilhame Paris’ latest single off her upcoming album, Just Wish It. Other features to include Nicolay, T3 (of Slum Village) and Shafiq Husayn (of Sa-Ra Creative). Spotted at NR.
