Pounds – “Write A Check” (Video)

blame it on JES7 February 20, 2016

The first thing heads will notice about rising New York emcee Pounds is his deep, gravelly voice, ripe with the life of strife. It’s a common trait found among some of rap’s heavyweights – Jadakiss, DMX, Fredro Starr, Mr. MFN eXquire, Akinyele, Canibus, and the list goes on.

Apart from his vocal hoarseness, Pounds has absolute control over his deep inflections and witty wordplay, layering punchlines, metaphors and similes with ease within each carefully measured bar, taking the art of rap as a science – all on full tilt and display in his new visual for “Write A Check.” If you’re digging the sounds, you’ll definitely want to keep it locked as he preps his new album, Heavy Lies the Crown.
