Big Pooh Sleepers
- Words: Brolin Winning
- Label: 6 Hole
The least-hyped member of NC trio Little Brother, Big Pooh languished in the shadows as critics heaped praise on 9th Wonder and Phonte. With his solo debut, Pooh proves he‘s no second-stringer, dropping a bevy of strong verses over warm, sample-drenched tracks, mostly from 9th and Justus League homie Khrysis. Mellow, mid-tempo joints dominate, with laid back but articulate verses that address females ("Just Friends," "Between The Lines") and the sometimes grim realities of daily life ("Heart of the City," "The Jungle"). For anybody still dozing on the kid, Sleepers is your wake-up call.
