IAMPOPULA’s New Album, "Same S*** Different State" Fuses East and West Coast Vibes
BROOKLYN BASED ARTIST IAMPOPULA HAS RELEASED HIS LATEST ALBUM, A BICOASTAL RAP PROJECT, VIA HIS LABEL INDIGO MUSIC GROUP; LISTEN TO HIS SINGLE ‘DESTINY’ ON SOUNDCLOUD
13TH April 2016, Brooklyn, NY- Brooklyn bred and raised, the musical sound of Junade Hassan, best known as “Iampopula,” ties in obvious influences from the surrounding culture of his New York upbringing. The fact that ‘Pop’ grew up on the block right behind Biggie Smalls makes it seem that the artist was destined to join the hip-hop game at an early age, which he did. Since the age of 15, having been inspired by his older brother Khalil Hassan (of the Ghetto Prophets), Pop has been honing in on his craft via production, rapping, writing and everything in between. It has led him to his latest venture ‘Same S*** Different State,’ where he seamlessly integrated the laid-back attitude and funk vibe of the West Coast into that authentic, gritty East Coast style of rap.
Produced by Meech Wells, noted for his work with Snoop Dogg and The Eastsidaz’, and Meech’s son Sean Wells.
