Rapper Big Pooh Does It Again With a Stellar Album That Feels Like Home Sweet Home (Album Stream)
Throughout his career, Rapper Big Pooh has produced some of his best work when paired with producers with a penchant for soulful beats. From teaming with 9th Wonder as part of Little Brother to releasing this year’s Words Paint Pictures album with Apollo Brown, something about deep funky bass lines and knocking Boom Bap drums inspire the North Carolina MC to go deeper, both in the groove and subject matter.
His latest album Home Sweet Home, his second in the calendar year, is no exception. Pooh teams with Nottz who has laced everyone from Black Milk to Pusha T with his own brand of soulful Hip-Hop. The Mello Music Group album hit stores today and the pair has released it for full stream. Whereas Words Paint Pictures was heavier in subject matter, with Pooh addressing many of the societal ills that have dominated headlines the last few years, Home Sweet Some is a soothing salve for the heart and mind. Pooh’s Bandcamp page describes the new LP as “soul food, an audible feast, a form of mental science, and a collection of memories reminding you why you first loved Hip-Hop.” Says Big Pooh, “I’m most proud about how precise we kept it. It’s an album that moves, glides in and out of songs, from one to the next. The topics are precise, the music thumps, and the length provides instant replay value.”
