This week, Hidden University received an amazing opportunity to conduct an interview with one of Philadelphia’s most well-known upcoming rappers, and also one of Temple University’s very own, Pooda Dappa. Over the past couple of years, Pooda has become very well-respected among his college peers and is definitely on his way to becoming an icon for his hometown of North Philly. Pooda Dappa has already been featured on a few popular websites including Datpiff.com, HipHopSince1987.com, and Philly’s local music radio station, Thekey.xpn.org.
You might’ve even spotted him in last June’s Issue of XXL Magazine. Pooda has also been featured on a various number of collaborations with well-known artists like Action Bronson, Cooley Black, and Quilly Millz. He has even earned a tremendous amount of respect from two of Philly’s hottest DJ’s, DJ Damage from Philly’s new HOT 107.9, and DJ Diamond Kuts from Philly’s Power 99. DJ Damage also made a cameo which was featured in Pooda Dappa’s “College Thrills” music video. In fact, Pooda Dappa just happens to be the newest member of Diamond Kuts Music Group (DKMG). In addition to all that, Pooda has just recently finished wrapping up a college tour where he did his thing at many different universities state-wide where he received a lot of positive feedback.
He is definitely taking all the right steps to make his journey to the top with a pretty nice line up of mixtapes that he released within the past couple of years, beginning with his debut mixtape “CashRoute”. Following “CashRoute”, Pooda dropped his highly anticipated sophomore mixtape, “Magnetic Personality” on August 16th of 2012, which was also hosted by DJ Damage and DJ Diamond Kuts. As of lately though, Pooda has been working hard to put out his third project titled, “Take Notes” which is scheduled to drop on March 26th. This EP features tracks produced by Strykerspeak, Roadirel, and Fetti Krueger. Pooda is also scheduled to perform March 3rd at the Blockley for “Campus Night Out” with a bunch of other special guests including Juelz Santana, Ich Gang, Young Savage, and the Bakery Boys.
