Poe 'New Era'

Nigerian MC Poe enters a 'New Era' with his solo effort and video shot by Shakes.


Nigeria's Poe first caught our attention when he played the assist with a verse on SDC's "Feel Alright" (one of our Top Tracks of 2013). Immediately setting himself apart with a chill cadence and impressive wordplay, Poe has been riding solo as of late, taking the glory for himself with "New Era." Poe's brand of witty introspection is backed by a Charlie X-helmed beat borrowing off a sample of Naeto C's "Ten Over Ten." Watch Shakes' art-heavy video below.  "New Era" will feature on Poe's upcoming T.A.P (Talk about Poe).
