Poofy Man to Release Debut Album August 16th
Dallas Rapper-Producer excited to announce debut solo project
DALLAS, TX - Friday, Poofy Man, a Dallas-based rapper-producer and local record label owner is set to release his debut solo album, “Brutal By Design.” The project is his first major release since 2017, and has been in the making for over a year.
With “Brutal By Design” being Poofy Man’s first major release as a solo artist since his production work in Dope Ninja’s album “Origins” in 2017, his audience has come to notice his continuous evolution as an artist.
He’s garnered respect and praise from fellow colleague 7 Tha Great, who is a local South Dallas rapper and co-owner of Phantom City Records.
“His production abilities in Hip Hop and technique as a rapper have consistently developed over the years,” comments 7 Tha Great. He went on saying, “It’s reassuring to see a friend grow in their own direction and not lose touch with the bigger vision along the way.”
Poofy Man grew up in Carrolton-Farmers Branch and spent most his life playing ice-hockey before making his break in the music industry. Some of his biggest influences include Nirvana, Nine Inch Nails, Skrillex and Lil Wayne.
“It’s refreshing to see an artist like Poofy Man pay homage to industry predecessors while simultaneously applying his background in EDM production to Hip Hop. I believe that this allows his style to vary from the modern rap music we hear today,” remarks Sammy Wilson a budding writer and Dallas area vocalist.
Overall, the album features a collection of refreshingly creative tracks - all of which, showcase his bandwidth for originality, dynamic word-play and thematics. Keep your eyes out for “Brutal By Design” as well as Poofy Man. Poofy Man has taken the extra steps to put Dallas on the map as well as help cultivate other local musicians.
