I caught up with one of Staten Island’s legendary rappers, Pop Da Brown Hornet. A rapper who made a lot of noise in the early 90s with street anthems such as “Can you Wu-Wu-Wu”. Pop also was an influence in the origins of Wu-Tang Clan but fell out with the group after not agreeing to the terms of the initial contracts which only offered 5% of his publishing. Pop eventually signed a major deal with MCA and released a widely considered classic album but lacked promotion!!
I caught up with the talented emcee and we discussed via Zoom the discrepancies in the Wu-Tang clan Netflix series, artists selling their soul for success in the music industry, and his new album Foreman Mandela.
