Poke Dog aka KING GUU…”What the GAME BEEN MISSING..”

Poke Dog, also known as the formidable King Guu, has been a stalwart presence in the rap scene, cultivating his craft for nearly a decade. Originating from Montgomery, Alabama, with roots firmly embedded in Selma, Poke Dog rapidly gained regional acclaim following the release of his inaugural mixtape, “Hood Icon.” The breakout success of the mixtape was propelled by the now-iconic street anthem “The Trap Ain’t Dead,” etching his name as a staple in the local music landscape.

Often drawing comparisons to heavyweight rap titans such as Rick Ross, Jeezy, and Boosie Bad Azz, Poke Dog consistently showcased his lyrical prowess and authentic street narrative. The subsequent release of the four-mixtape series, “Support OUR Trap,” further solidified his position in the rap game. These tapes not only kept Poke and his crew, DBD (Death Before Dishonor), in high demand on the streets but also garnered increased recognition throughout the region.

In January 2024, Poke Dog unleashed his latest musical endeavor, “King Guu 3: Death Before Dishonor.” This project stands as a testament to his commitment to the game and the elevation of talented artists from Alabama. The album features a lineup of some of the hottest unsigned talents, with the lead single “At this Point” collaborating with the emerging artist Lil’ Woot, who is rapidly making a name for himself.

When asked about the inspiration behind “King Guu 3,” Poke Dog offered a resounding affirmation of his passion for the game and a heartfelt desire to provide a platform for the talented artists emerging from Alabama. He stated emphatically, “I did it for my love of the game, and I wanted some of these talented artists from Bama to be heard, PERIOD.” With his unwavering dedication to his craft and his commitment to showcasing local talent, Poke Dog continues to solidify his position as a key player in the ever-evolving landscape of Southern rap.
