Poison Pen Discusses Latest Album

Contributed by AdamBernard:

The first time I saw Poison Pen perform was around five years ago. He was headlining an event called The Last Word in NYC. A buddy of mine had told me about Pen and noted that I had to see him live. He was right. Pen was, and still is, a monster on stage. The Stronghold member quickly became a top name on my must-see list and over the years many have seconded this opinion as his fan base has grown significantly both in the US and overseas. This week I caught up with Pen to find out about his latest album, ‘Pick Your Poison: The Mark of the East’, how he’s changed over the years as an artist, his thoughts on rappers aspiring to be thugs, and why he feels traveling is one of the most important things an artist can do to help their career.
