#rewindreview: Big Pooh ‘RPM’ 2018

Since Little Brother’s ‘The Listening’ from 2002, it was always a narrative that Big Pooh was the weaker M.C. out of the group and some that believed he never should have been behind a microphone. These narratives tend to shut people down while others, it only provides fuel to prove those narratives wrong. Over the years “Pooh’s” skill have not only gotten better but if one is really paying attention can hear more confidence in his delivery. On ‘RPM’ Big Pooh delivers a consistent set of HOP tracks that showcase just how comfortable the rapper is in his abilities. Produced entirely by Focus and featuring a few guest like Chaundon, Akilz Amari, C.S. Armstrong, Blakk Soul and Ab Liva. Focus manages not to over produce the record while Big Pooh experiments with some different cadences like on ‘Follow The Leader’ featuring Thurz and ‘Prey/Pray’ featuring Cocoa Sarai. Big Pooh and Focus do an excellent job of making sure songs go in many directions while also keeping the tracks and album shorter as to not lose ears in a drowning of “filler” tracks. ‘RPM’ doesn’t sound like an album where Big Pooh is trying to say to the public “I told you so” but rather “this is just what I do.” What did you think of the album?
