It’s not how long you live, it’s how well you live. When it comes to the life of Lil Pooh, the old adage is particularly applicable. From his own career as a musician to his behind the scenes work with and support of many of today’s most promising young artists, Coach P lived particularly well. In a field littered with two-faced backstabbers, Pooh was one of the most genuine and authentic people you could ever hope to come across in Hip-Hop. Relentlessly positive, he would work long hours helping pull up seemingly everyone he came into contact with. He clearly took joy in seeing young artists get a chance to do what they love professionally.
Personally, I first became aware of him as an artist, and we soon connected via social media. I was an immediate fan, I’ve listened to all of his releases numerous times. It was a pleasure to get to know him and observe his commitment towards advancing the Southern sound and its artists. He contributed a few songs to several compilations my blog released, and they were always among the best on the project. Below I’ve put together some of the best songs/mixtapes/videos he released. You can find more on his Soundcloud and blog. Rest in power, Long Live Lil Pooh.
