Hip-hop/Soul

Rapper Big Pooh, RockMost, the Mighty Network

When: Fri., Dec. 2, 9 p.m. 2011

Rapper Big Pooh of Durham, N.C.'s legendary hip-hop group Little Brother returns to perform cuts from his latest album, Dirty Pretty Things. Pooh (born Thomas Jones) still draws inspiration from the same backpacking, street-smart Native Tongues' sound of defining '90s acts, A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul. But through songs such as "They Say," "Are You Ready," and "Legendary Lullaby," he places the influence in a modern context, inside a swirl of soulful hip-hop lyricism.
