Gucci Mane has one of the hottest new hip-hop stars of 2021 in Memphis’ Pooh Shiesty. In 2020, the rising star built a resume of big-name features, including Lil Baby, Moneybagg Yo and Lil Durk. Today, we get the visual treatment to the new single with Durkio called “Back In Blood.”
In the new video, Shiesty and Durk link up with the goons for a night of gangsta boogie. As the two stars match each other bar for bar, they pull the jewels out, they pull the cars out, they pull the hammers out and get ready for all the smoke. The new single is set to appear on Pooh Shiesty’s debut project slated for 2021 release. Last year, Shiesty dropped a posse project, led by Gucci Mane, titled, So Icy Gang.
“Back In Blood” is directed by Jerry Production. For more Pooh Shiesty, follow the new star on Instagram.

ABOUT POOH SHIESTY
From XXL, Memphis’ own Pooh Shiesty, his rap skills were discovered later on in life when the rising artist realized he could go somewhere in hip-hop. Shiesty didn’t start making music until 18 years old. Two years ago, his first release was a feature on local Memphis rapper K Carbon’s remix of Three 6 Mafia’s “Weak Azz Bitch.” The song was received well (the audio on YouTube has over 1 million views), and showed Shiesty that he could make noise with his rhymes. He spent the next year putting out new songs, including the 2019 track “Choppa Talk” featuring his childhood friend Big30.
Soon after, Shiesty dropped the track “7.62 God,” an energy-packed walk through his life in the street. The song has a bounce that is almost reminiscent of the glory days of Trill Entertainment artists like Boosie BadAzz and Webbie. On this record, Shiesty’s confidence and feel for making songs feels polished, like his turn was always going to come. The video for “7.62 God” has been viewed over 16 million times and has nearly 3 million Spotify streams. He has plenty of other successful songs with similar YouTube views, including “Monday to Sunday” featuring Lil Baby and Big30, and the “Main Slime (Remix)” featuring Moneybagg Yo.
Last month, Pooh Shiesty released the new single “Back In Blood” featuring Lil Durk, which is currently taking off, and his forthcoming project is imminent.
