Alongside the infamous reputation of being the Western Iraq, Chicago artists have been leaving their imprint on the rap game in the new millenium. Since Kanye West, the sound of the Windy city has taken a rugged shift to drill music over the last decade. With Chief Keef as the face of drill music, he made a lane for fresh new acts to tell their veteran stories of surviving in Chiraq. The latest warrior up next goes by the name of Poo Mack.
Born and raised in Chicago’s South Side in the notorious Altgeld Garden Projects, young “Poo Mack” was forced to grow up fast. By the age of 12, the future emcee was knee deep in the world of street hustlers and witnessed firsthand the dedicated grind it would take to accumulate the wealth he desired.
Rapidly making a name for himself as one of the best young artist from Chicago, Mack has played all across the country and shared the stage with some of the hottest in the game including Chief Keef, King Louie, Lil Durk, Juicy J, and Trinidad James.
Mack is putting the finishing touches on an EP that will be sure to solidify his name in music circles as one of the next artists to take over the music industry. The yet to be titled EP will feature appearances by Lil Durk, Cap 1, Jae Millz, Yung LA, JR Donato, Coldhard of “Crucial Conflict” and more. Production will be handled by from his BandKamp family Paris Beuller and Young Chop, as well as Swift, Mike Ray, and Shon Ceasa.
Poo Mack recently released his single, Shots Fired, featuing OTF’s Lil Durk. The track was produced by Poo’s Band Kamp producer, Young Chop. As he depicts the cycle of gang violence and what it means to protect your neck on a day to day basis, he uses his career to transform the negative experiences to a positive life worth living. Here’s your first listen of Shots Fired.
