Atlantic Records

Back In Blood” rapper Pooh Shiesty is taking the stage on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this week.

Shiesty is the hottest thing coming out of Memphis, Tennessee under Gucci Mane‘s 1017 Record label. The 21-year-old dropped his debut mixtape, Shiesty Season in February, boasting appearances from heavy hitters like Gucci, 21 Savage, Lil Durk, Foogiano, and fellow Memphis rapper BIG 30. 

Pooh Shiesty has also made some high profile friends including Billboard chart-topper Lil Baby, who was featured on Pooh’s 2020 track “Monday to Sunday.”

In an interview with HipHopDX, Pooh explained how their blossoming friendship led the “The Bigger Picture” rapper to make a cameo appearance in his “Neighbors” video.

“Even with being the person he is, knowing how big he is, he still didn’t care,” Pooh said. “We been in the studio like 10-times, we ain’t got to record every time. You know, it’s just like regular life, he’s a bro now he’s locked in. See, that’s how he’s in the ‘Neighbors’ video.”

Catch Pooh Shiesty on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Wednesday at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
