I don’t think it’s a stretch to call Pouya one of the biggest groundbreakers in the history of underground music because even in his very early days in music, he was able to hold his own and go toe to toe with some of the best, and that helped him progress much quicker than most emcees typically do. Although Boobie Lootaveli has been on my radar for less time overall than Pouya, he has fascinated me ever since I did find out about him a few years ago, and whenever these two emcees team up, you know there is nothing but fire being created.
Unfortunately, Pouya’s collective Buffet Boys seemed to come to an end abruptly not too long ago, but thankfully it doesn’t seem like there is any bad blood or anything, they just wanted to move on to their next endeavor which is All But 6 records, and I’m pumped to see what they have up their sleeves! I mean, if the rest of their future is even half as entertaining as their latest release “Put it in My Pocket” is, then we’re in for a massive treat for years and years to come.
Produced by Mikey the Magician and Rocci, Boobie and Pouya absolutely glide over a percussion-forward instrumental that features a mischievous, lighthearted pan flute of some sort that just brings everything together wonderfully, but the Nicolas Giraldo-directed music video definitely takes the crown in my book. It opens with an intentionally cheesy and very comical commercial of sorts for the duo’s financial schemes, and as the song starts, they head into a board room and proceed to have an energetic Wolf of Wall Street-looking meeting.
Before long, though, the FBI heads into the building for a raid, but the tag team is able to escape with ease, evading law enforcement in a helicopter to continue on in their journey. I mean, I think it’s safe to say that these two will never drop a bad song together, so whether you trust me on that or not, you’re going to need to listen to “Put it in My Pocket” as soon as you get the chance.
