Legendary Houston rapper Big Pokey, whose real name is Milton Powell, died after suddenly collapsing on stage while performing at a bar in the city of Beaumont on Saturday night.
“One of the most naturally talented artists in the city. Low key, humble mountain of a man who moved with honor and respect," Bun B says of original member of Houston's Screwed Up Click.
We started our company in Houston and appreciate all of the contributions to the culture of music from Big Pokey we were so blessed to experience. He will be missed tremendously.
Big Pokey recently featured on “Exotic” by OTM C-LOS along with QC Pub artist, DfwTone, and the record became a quick playlist favorite amongst the exotic dogs community, often to being the soundtrack to countless videos of owners’ showcasing their award winning dogs.
