RAPPER BIG POOH ON HIS NEW ALBUM ‘TO DREAM IN COLOR’ AND HOW REINVENTION AS A MANAGER AND DJ HAS KEPT HIM IN THE GAME

Rapper Big Pooh has worn many hats throughout his almost 20-plus years in the game. He’s a founding member of the legendary group Little Brother, who has released several critically acclaimed albums. As a solo artist, Pooh has released several highly-regarded LPs such as Sleepers, The Delightful Bars, RPM, and his Fat Boy Fresh series.

On top of this, Pooh has become a manager and DJ and has toured all over the world with all of his gifts on display. According to Pooh, reinvention is the key to longevity in the world of Hip-Hop.

“Reinvention extends your lifeline,” Pooh told HipHopDX right before a scheduled performance in North Carolina. “When you recreate yourself it allows you to continue on because it’s all about adaptation at the end of the day. Taking the time to go work with younger artists helps rejuvenate me. Playing music as a DJ has helped me fall back in love with music. Having the privilege to watch legends like Dr.Dre at work in the studio and see how things work on that level. That’s free school. That’s like Ph.D.-level classes in songwriting and music making. All these different things just help to extend the life of whatever you want to do in this business.”
