New Jersey has been an under-appreciated hip-hop sector for years. Many highly touted creatives swept under the rug due to mass competition from their close neighbor New York. MBK Pook is a Jersey workhorse that continuously cultivates mainstream quality heaters with lyrical substance that’ll raise the hairs on your arm. On “Different Side”, Pook puts his vocal range on full display, delivering a passionate melodic chorus on the piano infused instrumental.
The track’s cohesiveness forms in heartfelt punchlines about loss and other personal tribulations. MBK screams, ”The sh*t I been through is enough to make any n**** cry, all these opps inside a blunt might roll it up and get me high.” Pook‘s innate ability to be raw and transparent through his music, while maintaining catchy wordplay, is what draws you so closer to his entire brand!
