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.

Kur is Repping for the Have Nots

‘Have Not’ is Kur’s latest musical effort. The 22 year-old rapper has been WORKING. The EP has all of eight songs and features some of the hottest producers in Philly. Maaly Raw, Don Cheese, and Infamous Rell have produced some of Kur’s crowd favorites. Songs such as No Trust ft Dave East, Right Now, and the namesake of  this entire project, Have Nots. Childhood friend and fellow Philly rapper, Chynna Rogers assists Kur on one of my favorite tracks, Razor. The sh*t gets you amped! Chynna delivers a cut throat chorus with lyrics like

 

“LIKE WHAT’S YO NAME, LIKE WHERE YOU FROM? LIKE WHO’S YOUR GANG? WE DON’T KNOW THEM. THAT MEANS THEY FOOD, THAT MEANS YOU TOO.”

The A$AP Mob’s first lady takes no prisoners.
Kur also enlisted Coop Poppy and Lihtz Kamraz. One thing we know about Kur is that he has a core (lol) peer team that he prefers to work with. Artists who vibe well with his music.
Be on the lookout for his debut studio album, Shakur, set to release in November 2016.
