The competitive nature, the ability to convert past failure into something positive, the constant drive to perfect the rap talent, the non-stop working and grinding and not to mention various fans and thousands of copies of the music circulating the metroplex as a result. Los Angeles native S. Poe demonstrates through his hard work, lyricism, and attitude what many artists lack--- a vision of providing a positive voice to fans as well as accepting challenges in the music industry and applying them into his emerging career. S. Poe was born in LA but moved to Texas at the age of 14. He began his quest to rap success as a concert promoter for the next few years. In April 2004, he received his opportunity when he networked with various connections at the annual Kappa Beach Party. S. Poe began to open up for many artists through his connections after deciding to take a different avenue besides concert promoting. His first major event as an artist was in May 2004 when he performed at a pool party with late Houston rapper Big Moe in Dallas. S. Poe’s performance gained much notoriety that the main artist performed an encore. An emerging career also brings temporary downfalls. S. Poe applied a majority of his time into recording an album in his studio. However, a lack of knowledge about the business aspect of the industry led to a minor decline after about one and a half years. By the end of 2006, things were starting to look back up for S. Poe. For the next two years, S. Poe and his team began to manually manufacture CDs, he worked with local artists, and he assisted with local television shows including Slab Lab TV and Mike City TV. In addition, he threw about six concerts and opened up for artists. In April 2007, the climax of S. Poe’s career took place when he received the chance of a lifetime. He opened up for various artists such as Lil’ Wayne, Jim Jones, and Young Jeezy for the Street Dream Tour in front of thousands of fans. For the rap industry and the countless Dallas music fanatics, there is much more in store. S. Poe has successfully handed 8,000 copies of his music to music fanatics city-wide. In addition, his knowledge of artist development, management, and photography continues to increase. Last month, he also released his album “Will Rap for Millions.” S. Poe is definitely not the average artist. His businessman mentality along with his refusal to fail foreshadows the start of a lasting music career. For this local artist, quitting is definitely not a part of his vocabulary. Currently living in a city consisting of a cutthroat yet unpredictable music industry ultimately stimulates S. Poe to utilize the competition and ultimately reach his goal as a highly successful artist.
The S. Poe story is uniquely one of a kind. It is the story of a husband and wife with a dream, a plan, and a promise. Or otherwise known as D.P.P.. The D.P.P. started in 1994 when the couple first met. Then went into action 2003. When the couple reunited in Dallas, T.x., got married, and decided to have a family. All most ten years later after meeting and being high school sweethearts.
By this time S. Poe was a street hustler, peddling change from bill to bill and week to week. His new wife put a opportunity on the table like no other. In one hand was his life in streets and a dead end road to jail. In the other hand was his chance to do music full time. Every day with "her" supplying the financial support that it would take to make it successfully. If he could swear that he would never return to the streets to make money. This was their dream, and their plan.
The Promise! This was a task impossible for any other natural woman to take or offer. Supporting the well being of a grown man who is capable of doing it himself. Thus S. Poe and his wife came upon an agreement. Before taking any action. "A promise." S. Poe would use his success to take away the average low income struggles away from his wife forever. To redefine her experiences of poverty. Give her all spoils his success could afford. He began a label in his wife's name. And signed himself to her in a never ending contract. For as long as they both should live. He belongs to her musically and spiritually. Till death do them apart.
He and his wife are now living happily ever after. Still pushing success to a never ending limit. Out doing all competition that has risen. In promotion, music, and business. That all started from one phrase.
"I told my wife I was the best".........and we believe just that!!!
