Rochester Rapper Pounds Pays Homage To Former Street Baller Turned King Pin
Skilled emcee Pounds continues his incredible run of releases with the ‘Pee Wee Kirkland’ EP, a fantastically produced collection of hard-hitting and chilling street tales from one of underground hip-hop’s most talented voices. Produced entirely by FITH, the ode to the New York basketball star-turned-drug kingpin includes snarling verses on mafioso-rap burners like “Problem” (feat. Meyhem Lauren) and “Choices” (feat. CRIMEAPPLE).
That being said, Pounds is clearly in narrative control throughout the EP, thanks in part to the most powerful weapon in his arsenal: that voice. It can make his enemies shiver in fear and his buddies die laughing within seconds. To that end, it’s worth noting that his perceived grim personality is more than capable of humor. Few emcees are capable of delivering threats laced with a Dave Coulier reference, but Pounds of course makes it sound natural (and hilarious).
