DALLAS/ FT. WORTH RAPPERS MR. POOKIE & MR. LUCCI ARE SET TO RELEASE NEW ALBUMS

MR. POOKIE’S RETURN OF THA RIPPLA HITS STREETS ON OCTOBER 25TH AND MR. LUCCI’S THE GOLDEN CHILD ON NOVEMBER 22ND

Dallas, TXNew York based-Boss Entertainment has sealed a deal with Mr. Pookie and Mr. Lucci and their Crawl 2 Ball record label. The dangerous Dallas duo has cooked up some new music to lay on hip-hop fans, and will appear on the music scene in a one-two punch.

These two lyrical assassins first made heads spin towards Texas with their solo album debuts. First came Mr. Pookie and Tha Rippla, his debut album a few years back that sold some 100,000 copies around the Dallas area on the strength of the hits Southern Made Playa, Crook-4-Life and the title cut. Then came his associate Mr. Lucci with his debut album, Diabolical, which sold an equally impressive 60,000 units locally, helped by the killer track Lifted and title cut. Pookie and Lucci continued their assault on the region with successive solo and collaborative efforts including their much-talked-about underground double CD release from 2002, My Life.

First up, the laid-back Mr. Pookies RETURN OF THA RIPPLA will pick up where his first album left off five years ago, and go deeper into his flow. Leading off with some sizzling singles, the club song Dont Test Us, featuring Mr. Lucci and Mr. Montis, and the anthemic Heads Up, featuring Lil Yo, the CD will make it clear to all, both inside and outside of Texas, why Mr. Pookie is considered The King of Dallas Rap. Other stand-out tracks on the CD include player song Ride, Roll And Smoke, the R&B -leaning male/female duet Feelin You, and Young Man, a song about Mr. Pookie and his growth, which is his personal favorite. And listeners should also look out for Robbin Tha Game, Texas Niggaz, Hold Down, Playa From Tha Start, Feel Like I Feel and Times Get Tough (Wont Give Up).

Next up, the introspective Mr. Luccis THE GOLDEN CHILD will present his creative new joints, since his last solo project four years ago. War, the hardcore street/club tune, featuring Mr. Pookie, Nitty & D, is the first single. Also notable are the positive-message-laden Stay Committed, the catchy, street-anthemic My Nigga, the story-telling Im Gonna Make It, and Trouble, which contains an interesting Mahalia Jackson sample. And Southside, Chill Wit You, They Shady, Cant Take It, Day By Day, and Have U Eva Loved (a personal dedication) are not to be missed, along with Mr. Luccis song for the ladies, Im Tired. All the tracks lay Mr. Luccis electrifying creativity out in front of the listener.

Tailoring a pattern of Southern success--of previously released, independent records later picked up by major companies, like Master P, Nelly, Three 6 Mafia and The Cash Money Click did, Mr. Pookie and Mr. Lucci are the next up to become a household name.
