Michael Moore was born in Trinidad & Tobago. At the age of 12, he moved to the United States, Brooklyn, NY ; where he was exposed to a whole new world. His passion for music started in the 6th grade at IS33 Junior High after seeing his first talent show. Instantly, he knew that was what he wanted to do. He met up with a kid from his neighborhood that had the same mission. They then formed a group called “Hood Heads” but, it was all fun and games.
When he started to attend Eastern District High School he started to take music more seriously. Some guys were having a cipher and he decided to jump in. He suddenly realized he was in the big leagues and had to step his game up. It wasn’t pretty. He continued to do music that he knew his peers could relate to.
He later won a scout for talent contest that his school was hosting. He won a 2 year contract and a free video shoot which he declined for various reasons. Soon after that he became friends with Malik Coax aka Memphis Bleek, who was also a student at Eastern District. Things weren’t going the way Mike planned so he started living the street life. Doing what he had to do to get by. Bleek invited Mike to go to the studio with him but failed to mention he was going to Rockafella Recording Studio. While Bleek was recording Mike was hustling to get money and had put the music behind him. A few months went by and while listening to the radio he heard a firmiliar voice. “You can ill if you wanna ill. Kill if you wanna kill. It’s alright, ya heard.” That blew his mind. It was Jay Z and Bleek.
A few years went by and Mike decided it was time for a change so he relocated to Colorado. While in Colorado he met a local artist, Payback. Payback was able to get Mike into various shows. They loved his East Coast style. Mike Moore became Pop the Doc because he gets it poppin with his performance and music because like a Doc he makes you feel better.
Pop the Doc created a style he named Reggae-Hop that is a mixture of hip-hop and reggae.
While working on a project named Beat Robbers at Livewire Studio he met Mimi aka So Sick. They recorded a track called “Ride 4 Me” featuring Dj Bush and it was a wrap.
