What’s up next in culture is #UpNow on Audiomack. Our emerging artist program is dedicated to spotlighting and promoting the next generation of global music superstars.
Memphis rapper Pooh Shiesty is Audiomack’s latest #UpNow artist.
The Southern torchbearer and signee to Gucci Mane's New 1017 follows a longstanding tradition of harrowing Memphis sounds and is elevating to icon status. From his first upload in August 2019 to his major-label debut Shiesty Season, released February 5 and home to the smash hit “Back In Blood” featuring Lil Durk, Pooh has established himself as an absolute force.
Pooh has racked up over 45 million plays on Audiomack to date, was selected for the June 2020 edition of 10 Rappers You Need to Know Right Now, and covered Gucci's classic single "Lemonade" for our series 17 Bars With The New 1017 in September 2020.
“Thank you to Audiomack for consistently supporting me and my music," said Pooh Shiesty regarding his selection for #UpNow. "It feels great to be recognized and I appreciate all the love. It’s only up from here.”
Pooh Shiesty is the cover artist of Audiomack's official #UpNow playlist. Stay tuned for exclusive content with Pooh Shiesty rolling out throughout the month, including a Fine Tuned performance, interview, and mini-documentary.
