Words Paint Pictures
Rapper Big Pooh’s debut release for Mello Music Group, Words Paint Pictures, is out everywhere. Produced by Detroit’s Apollo Brown with one exclsuive remix from L’Orange, the new album also features Ras Kass, Marv Won, Lure, Novej, Jalen Santoy, Steve Roxx, and Erik “Blakk Soul” Keith.
The North Carolina MC captures the complex agonies of the human condition—specifically the black experience in America over the last several centuries. These are tales of racial profiling and corrupt politicians, reality TV distractions, thieving preachers and rapacious exploitation—all offset by tremendous strength. They are uniquely American stories, chronicling both the damned and hopeful. From bleak circumstances, a profoundly durable human spirit emerges.
You might have previously known Big Pooh best for his work in Little Brother, but this is the most powerful music he’s ever made. Mining deeply into the personal, he’s created something profound and universal.
