About Pooca Leroy- In an age where Dallas rap artists are primarily known for dance songs and ring tones, Pooca Leroy has a style, swagger, passion, and versatility that not only distinguishes him from Dallas rappers, but ultimately, will change the entire landscape of the southern rap scene. Affectionately named Pooca by his father shortly after birth, around age twelve the name Leroy was co-opted after watching the movie, one of his favorite movies, “The Last Dragon”, whose principal character was a guy named, “Leroy”. This viscous, yet, clever and lyrical emcee’s claim to fame is the flame that he spits every time he touches a microphone. He is, thus, aptly nick-named, Tha South Side Dragon.
Strongly influenced by artists such as Pimp C, T.I., Tupac, Lil Flip, Lil’ Boosie, Webbie, 8 Ball & MJG, Lil’ Keke, and Z-Ro, like theirs, his music has street appeal. Among other things Pooca Leroy is out to prove that he can go toe to toe with anyone in the game and accepts the burden of changing the perception of Texas rappers. He admits that he feels like the rap game needs more originality, style, and lyrics and he’s going to bring it. Let’s get ready to rumble; “THE CHAMP IS HERE"!
