Who can forget rapper ImproPoe’s bold declaration on who the best emcee was? Of course, his answer was HIMSELF! He made this statement three years ago following the release of his mixtape Body of Proof,which ultimately earned him some rather impressive levels of acclaim. On this project, the rapper who is part of Revivolution had embarked on proving a point to announce his arrival.
Since then the man with more aliases than the entire Wu Tang Clan, ironically went off on a mystical journey to the Far East and landed up in China where he currently resides. By adopting the industriousness of his new host country, he then worked on another solo project which was released a few weeks ago titled Certain Dillusions. The curiosity will always come about when one impresses on debut, as questions arise like what can hip hop fans from him expect now? It can also be rather difficult to try and beat a previous body of work with minimal flaws.
We are excited that ImproPoe aka Shaun Collins aka The White Shadow aka James Caviar, has finally dropped his sophomore project and would not miss the opportunity to catch up with him.
