Blak Pope is more than just your typical hip-hop artist, he is a master of party hip-hop with a talent for producing club songs that bump. He is also possibly the best on stage performer in the industry. Although he grew up in a small coastal town in Cameroon, West Africa, he loved listening to American freestyle rappers like 2pac and NAS who’s music motivated him to pursue a career in hip-hop. Also, as a world traveler, this emerging hip-hop philosopher has diverse music sounds that are expressed in some of his unique beats.Now residing in Seattle, WA, he is reppin the 206 deep in body and soul and like we say in hip-hop: he is ‘’buzzin’’ and creating noise at home. It didn’t all come at once for this Blak Pope. He has paid his dues, put in time behind the soundboard, and mixed in clubs and studios to craft upbeat hip-hop music that undeniably satisfies nightclub devotees and pop music fans alike.Blak Pope is about to release his first full-length album titled “Breaking News.” New fans will be thrilled to hear some unexpected collaborations with well- known Seattle artists. No doubt songs from the new CD may be classified under the new age of hip-hop, but make no mistake that Blak Pope is more of a musician than an artist and can navigate from verses to hooks all by himself.
