Growing up, Pop Lord admittedly didn’t have much of an interest in rapping.
“When I got hurt, I turned to the streets,” recalls Pop Lord. A friend at the time actually had a studio in his basement and implored Pop Lord to try rapping one day.
“My friend asked me why I wouldn’t rap and I’m like ‘I don’t know anything about rapping.’ He just told me it’s entertainment. He helped me write my first rap and from there, it’s just been up,” says Pop Lord.
