Moe Pope & RainLet The Right Ones In
In 2010, Pope hooked up with Boston producer Rain and released the critically acclaimed Life After God, an album that would change his career forever. The record earned a spot on iTunes Rewinds "Top 10 Albums of 2010", Boston Herald's "Top Local Hip Hop Album of 2010" and The Boston Phoenix "2011 Boston's Best". In addition, Pope was honored in The Improper Bostonian Music Issue as the "New Up and Comer" and he landed a cover and feature story in Stuff Magazine.
Drawing inspiration from a diverse background of influences, Pope has spent the last few years reinventing his craft and forming alliances to inspire his work. Now at the peak of his career, he announces his latest collaboration as Moe Pope & Rain for the release of the long awaited full-length album Let the Right Ones In.
Let The Right Ones In explores new sonic territory as Pope and Rain channel their diverse musical backgrounds to create a work that blurs the lines between hip-hop, indie-rock and electronic music. The album ranges from hip-hop tradition like A Tribe Called Quest, to the abstract prose of Bob Dylan, the pure adrenaline angst of Bad Brains, to Radiohead's relentless eccentricity. Pope's newest release promises to be a truly original culmination of a lifetime's experience and influences.
