Artist Interview: PoopE Balboa
Tell us about yourself and your music
What’s up people I’m PoopE Balboa, I am an Artist from Sacramento California born in Oakland California. I’ve been into music since before Gradeschool and wrote my first rap at 13.Talk to us more about your latest release
I recently released a project called ‘Holes in the boat’. available on all music platforms so make sure to check that out.
What inspired you to write this release?
This release is inspired by the pain, struggle, and betrayal that I’ve encountered over time.
It’s hard to stay afloat when there are people on board drilling holes in the boat.
Describe the writing and recording process
This project was written and recorded in a home studio but professionally mixed and mastered. The writing process was pretty emotional on a few tracks because I had to kind of re-live some things that were painful.
Any plans to release a video?
I have released a video for the title track and plan to drop at least five more.
Any plans to hit the road?
I am looking to tour but nothing is set in stone right now. I have recently performed in a few holes in the wall venues around Sacramento
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
A lot of artists today just rap with little or no meaning and most are hard to understand. I like to paint vivid pictures in my experience of life.
Who have you been listening to lately?
I’ve been listening to a lot of Nipsey Hussle lately… I think he’s pretty inspirational.
Who are your biggest influences?
I’ve always been influenced by artists like Ice cube, too short, E-40 but one of my biggest influencers today is Mozzy. I grew up with that guy so we definitely share the same struggles.
Tell us about your passions
I would have to say, families. I have two boys 16 and 13 that I’ve been taking care of on my own for the past 11 years and making sure their goals are met it is very important to me.
What else is happening next in your world?
Well, I’ve always been into filming and directing and I am happy to announce that I am working on a movie and a few other things that you guys will have to wait and see about.
Thanks for an awesome interview, Henry
