Rapper Big Pooh is half of Little Brother, but he’s a talented emcee on his own too. He enlisted talented producer Nottz for the beat, and grabbed California’s lyrical mastermind Blu for the feature on “Grass Ain’t Green.” Big Pooh masterfully spits tales about his (at times misguided) come up, guided by the refrain “green grass, same shoes.”
Blu shreds the second verse before Big Pooh hops back on the mic for to finish out the song with a chorus. Nottz’ went old school for the beat, using a looped vocal sample, sampled drums and a covering everything in a layer of old school record scratches. He recently released the joint EP “Rawther” with Asher Roth.
“Grass Ain’t Green” is available for free download if you’re digging it.
bless the earth again before we murk
hit the turf we tryna drop this work off like it's the 1st nigga
we get it in, and I whistle while y'all work
and I pen it like I molded it from dirt
and I spit it like an ocean hugging onto the earth
now that's flowing it bruh
