Yesterday, Pouya broke the internet with his long awaited second album Five Five. As one of the hottest rappers coming out of Florida, Pouya believes the state’s recognition has been long overdue.
He is not wrong.
Pouya has been paving his own lane in Florida’s underground rap scene for a long time coming and it payed off. “I’ve been doing this since 2011, so I’ve seen everybody come and go and people stay,” he said. “I don’t think it’s necessarily late because I think every dog has his day. But it’s good to see that people are waking up. I love to see a fellow Floridian making it. It’s hard out here man” he said in a XXL interview.
FIVE FIVE is an affirmation of Pouya coming into his own, proving to the world that Florida is nothing to mess with. Pouya tackles topics about depression, staying sober, the struggles of making it.
