POORSTACY is ready to become a full-fledged rockstar. The South Florida native first gained traction on SoundCloud back in 2019 for his emo-rap hits like “make up” (produced by Nick Mira) which helped to usher the subgenre into mainstream success.
After dropping his crossover album The Breakfast Club via Internet Money Records/10K Projects, along with collaborations with artists like Whethan, Travis Barker, and more in 2020, POORSTACY has been proclaimed as the “rockstar for the SoundCloud generation” by The Noise and one of the “15 artists rewriting the emo rulebook” by AltPress.
With his upcoming project Party At The Cemetery (due later this year), which was influenced by the local Metal and Punk scenes he grew up around, POORSTACY dedicates the new album to his friends who have passed away. Filled with stories of angst, betrayal, and apathy, Party At The Cemetery is POORSTACY’s most ambitious work to date and captures the difficulties of the pandemic and coming of age into hardcore rock hits.
Growing up on a steady diet of punk, metal, and hip-hop, rising artist POORSTACY is a sum of his disparate influences. The 21-year-old singer, rapper and guitarist spent his formative years performing shows in small venues around his hometown of Palm Beach, Florida: “There’s a real Metal scene out there. Lots of punk rock, and gothic stuff...and so, I’ve chosen to actually make my music based on what I grew up around.”
Combining the power chords and angst of punk with the 808s and the half-sung melodies of modern hip-hop, POORSTACY’s work has led to collaborations with multi-platinum-selling producer Nick Mira (Juice WRLD, Post Malone) and Blink 182's Travis Barker, to name a few.
