Rapper Big Pooh "Words Paint Pictures' EP (Album Stream)


"Rapper Big Pooh has definitely been coming with that heat as of late. His collaboration with Apollo Brown has brought out some of his best solo music to date IMO. After hitting us with a string of leaks, Rapper Big Pooh and Apollo Brown’s collabo EP is now ready for the world to hear. The NC emcee and Detroit producer just released Words Paint Pictures via Mello Music Group. The 9-track EP has features from Ras Kass, Marv Won, Novej, and more. “The project captures the complex agonies of the human condition with themes of race relations and the black experience in America, tales of corrupt politicians, reality TV distractions, substance abuse, thieving preachers and rapacious exploitation –all offset by tremendous strength.” Listen to the full project below, then go purchase it HERE. Personal favorites: "Augmentation" and especially "How I Move."

"Fuck rap when your life's spiraling out of control
But all they wanna know is "When that new shit coming?"
Standing on stage by myself, heart drumming
Pour your soul out, they ain't coming
Step outside box they go running
I'm giving up a piece of me
Open up for a piece to see
It's all peace when you finally free"
- "How I Move"
