Charismatic with a lyrical flow that will make any A&R question "who is that?", Poppo The iLLe$T is indeed one of the Garden State's diamonds in the rough. But just rough enough to drive the ladies wild and be well respected by his male peers. Native of Linden, NJ Poppo can be spotted on any giving day ending in the letter "Y" walking out of a Ralph Lauren Polo Store or headed to the studio to perfect his craft.
First hitting the music scene as one third of "Flatlinuz", a rap group hailing from his hometown of Linden, Poppo learned the ins and outs of the rap game swiftly. After a 2 year run, the group went on an indefinite hiatus. However, before each member agreeably went on to do solo acts, as a group they dropped two mixtapes including "Show & Prove vol.1" (2006) and sequel "Show and Prove vol.2" (2007). The "Flatlinuz" also had the support of there town which made show promoters call them to open for major arrests such as Rick Ross and D-Block.
Shortly after "Flatlinuz" Poppo was then recruited to Universal/Motown artist Money Malc's elite Scrilla Squad Movement in 2008 as a solo artist. As fate would have it, Sin and Many Stylz , the other two members of Flatlinuz also teamed up with Scrilla Squad! Since then, Poppo and the Scrilla Squad has dropped three mixtapesas well as a street album (Get Familiar Wit Us, Real Niggas is Back in Style, We Back Winning & No Room For Error).
But it would be winter of 2010, known in the music industry as the first quarter, that Poppo would debut his highly anticipated, heavily discussed in every local hair salon and barbershop, street album "LICEN$ED TO iLL!" With timeless material, Poppo strategically shows off his versatility through out the entire cd. Unable to skip a song even if you wanted to, the consumer is taken in to the world where the real reside. With his captivating hooks and "iLL" verses, Poppo has proved , with the release of one solo project, why he is indeed the iLLe$T!! Loved and supported by most, hated by few, Poppo The iLLe$T has done an array of shows, performing with the members of Scrilla Squad and as a solo act. Being real and maintaining humbleness, Poppo's music reflects what he's experienced. "I try to keep it as G as i can!" Poppo states. When it comes to the ladies Poppo says "Dealing with women is easy for me. I was raised by women and i have a unconditional love for them!"
