L.I.L Pooh (Larger In Life) feels the current direction of Hip Hop is coming back to an originality now that people are starting to be themselves again. Focused on becoming a hot new trend, Pooh has secretly started to learn the art of beat-making so he can have his own in-house production. With Pooh’s fiery lyrics and potential to explore all genres of music, he’s just waiting to be discovered and taken to the next level.
IAA: What is your music background?
L.I.L POOH: My music background is mostly hip hop and r&b, but I’m more of an eclectic type of artist. I like all genres of music.
IAA: What inspired you to do music?
L.I.L POOH: The people that inspired me to do music are my two uncles. They were managing R&B groups while I was growing up and teaching me how to be professional at the same time. I sat back and absorbed everything I saw them doing. My first experience being on stage was when I was in the 3rd grade performing “It’s The Bomb” by Kriss Kross. Another inspiration was the music itself, and how it can set any type of mood. I really get into the music and it feels like we are one (music and me) by the way I feel it all throughout my body. It may sound weird but that’s just my feeling for the sound of rhythm.
IAA: What are your songs about?
L.I.L POOH: Well I have songs that can relate to pretty much everybody. I write about what I’m going through or been through, the pain, struggle, looking and feeling good, overcoming adversity, true stories, and just the way I feel on a certain beat.
IAA: Do you write your own music?
L.I.L POOH: Yes of course I write my own music, but I’m always open to opinions or ideas.
IAA: Who are your musical influences?
L.I.L POOH: My musical influences on the business side are people like Jay-Z, Russell Simmons, Diddy, and 50 Cent. On the music side I’m influenced by artist such as 2PAC, Lil Wayne, UGK, Outkast, Beyonce, Bone Thugs N Harmony, R-Kelly, Ginuwine, and Usher, just to name a few.
IAA: How would you describe your music to people?
L.I.L POOH: I would describe my music as influential art. My music is the type of music that everyone can relate to.
IAA: What makes you stand out from other artists?
L.I.L POOH: I think one thing that makes me stand out from other artists is that I’m willing to be myself and not follow anyone else. I rather have people follow my movement. I do support other artists’ movements, but I’m willing to go outside the box and make it cool for other people to do so as well.
IAA: What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
L.I.L POOH: My career goal is to be a successful music artist and entertainer period. I want to explore entertainment as far as acting, modeling, and being behind the scenes. 10 years from now I see myself deeper in the entertainment industry and more successful with everything I do. Music or acting are two fields that I am very interested in becoming a legend in. 10 years from now I see myself working with some of the best entertainers in the world. I want to have at least 7-8 CDs released
