Soul P – The Layover

Soul music has been an integral part of pop culture since the very first record hit the turntable. From Elvis Presley to Jay-Z, everybody needs a bit of flavor to be successful. These days, it goes unsaid that there is a constant stream of new hip-hop and R&B artists trying to make their voices heard. And the more soul you have, the better the chance that you’ll get noticed. Portland is fast becoming a leader in the hip-hop movement, and Soul P. is one of the best emcees that Portland has to offer. This man is destined to change the way you view the art form of hip-hop. Born and raised in Seattle, Soul P. has been through the struggle and is ready to share his musical vision with the world. Growing up in The Yesler Terrace neighborhood, Soul P. came face-to-face with the harsh realities of the streets at an early age. Even though he was surrounded by crack cocaine and gang warfare, Soul P. persevered. These early experiences influence his music, giving Soul P.’s lyrics and rhyming an authentic flavor that is rarely found in today’s sea of commercialism.

Soul P. is an emcee with an extremely solid resume. He began his solo career by independently releasing three critically acclaimed albums, Simpy Soul, The Soul Affect, The Premiere. All three albums are noted for their gritty street-influenced production and meaningful lyrical content. These records established Soul P. as a serious contender in the underground music scene. With his explosive combination of intelligence and strength, Soul’s independent material gave him a solid platform on which to build his music. Now he has expanded and partnered With Yawma to bring you THE LAYOVER exclusively.  It precedes his upcoming record EASY MCCOY which will be produced by Grammy Nominated Production Team “Incorporated Elements” and With Liquid Assets  in Spring 2011.
