Exclusive: Coop Poppy Talks New Music, Losing Friends to The Rap Game, Gate Keeping and More

I had the chance to sit down with Coop Poppy and explore a little more about him as a person and an artist. He discusses his latest single, Sho’nuff, growing up in the city of Philadelphia and learning to express himself differently through music.

2x (two times) sheds some light on his upbringing in the city and what led him to his current position as an artist. He says he initially started making music solely for his neighborhood (just something to keep the hood motivated.) As his music grew, so did his fan base. The 26-year-old has tore down stages across the city and the nation. Coop poppy also shares his thoughts on realistically maneuvering the music industry (if you’re in it, you already know about the politics of the “the game.” It’s a game of chess.)
The uptown rapper has worked with some of the hottest producers, these names may ring a bell: Maaly Raw, DJ Tizz, Dougie on the Beat, and Infamous Rell to name a few. In the interview he gives us the drop on new music with long time confidant, Kur, a single with Drama, and Fredo Santana’s close friend and member of Glory Boyz Entertainment,
Gino Marley

Big $lime has been a very busy rapper, check out the interview above and follow Coop Poppy to stay in the loop with his latest releases.


Coop Poppy is Heating Up

Coop Poppy has went on a recent dropping spree, giving us a few new bangers. Time, Throwed, No Capping, and Broke My Wrist; all high energy hits. He enlists the assistance of frequent collaborators DJ Tizz and Dougie on The Beat for production.  My favorite is Throwed. Philly’s Trapma$ter has been working towards releasing a new project, hinting on Twitter and Instagram that it would be released before 2018. We haven’t gotten a solid date as of yet, Coop likes to keep us on our toes. However, he has released the video for his single Dope Boy. Check out his latest interview with HipHopSince1987.
You can see Uptown’s own this Saturday December 16, 2017. Performing alongside the First Lady of the A$AP Mob and another Philly native, Chynna. Tickets are available HERE
