Sitting down with the dopehouse and The Well Versed, Rapper Big Pooh spoke on his “soul bearing,” upcoming solo album.
“I’m working on a collaboration project with my man Roc C, the group is called Young Americans,” Pooh says. “The album isn’t titled yet but the first single is called ‘Set It Off’ produced by S1 (Producer of Kanye West’s ‘Power’). We actually have two videos done already.
“After (the collaboration project), my solo project Dirty Pretty Things is finally coming,” he reveals. It’s a project that has been discussed ever since 2005′s Sleepers was released. But for one reason or another, the album was pushed aside as Pooh worked with Little Brother on their final two albums.
“What you get (for the 4 years) I started working on Dirty Pretty Things now is what I’ve been working on since the beginning,” he says. “This is probably the most introspective and the most soul bearing stuff (I’ve recorded),” he says. “Even when you listen to it, it’s not necessarily me saying ‘I, I, I” but every story is my story. I’m definitely bearing my soul on this one.”
