Album: Allen Poe – Pocket Full of Ohms

Released for free download and streaming on DJBooth.net, Allen Poe of Kentucky trio Basement Up has dropped his second album to critical acclaim, Pocket Full of Ohms.  A play on UGK’s classic Pocket Full of Stones, Pocket Full of Ohms is a record that attempts to account for Poe’s coming of age in what many consider hip hop’s golden age during the 90’s.  Also, on the grander scale, Pocket Full of Ohms gives a vivid glimpse of how hip hop influenced him, not as an artist, but as a man.  The album features production by J57 on “Know What I’ve Got“, Nemo Achida on the Von Pea and Basement up featured “Gina“, Foreign Allegiance and many more with appearances including yU, Sheisty Khrist, and Emma Shaheen among others.
