Frankfort, Kentucky buzzmaker Allen Poe didn’t grow up dodging bullets on his way home from school, nor is he rapping in an effort to claw his way up from abject poverty. What motivates him? Simple: he’s having fun. But don’t let that fool you into thinking he’s not serious about his hustle; on new single Know What I Got, he proves that he far surpasses your average emcee in talent, drive and ambition. J57, a member of Booth-acclaimed crew Brown Bag All-Stars, provides a quirky, vocal-sampled beat to back the Poe-etically gifted rhymesayer’s determined bars. Pocket Full of Ohms is scheduled to drop January 7, 2014. In the meantime, keep your browsers locked for more fresh singles off the forthcoming set.
