I had done time in prison…I never really wanted to be a rapper. I always had a tune in my head since I was a boy. You got people that end up, like they get to rapping and they get a little better, or they might get worse. What made you do the Plugged In mixtape with more traditional sounding beats? It kept me out of trouble. I just like to keep it real and that was my tool for prison.

What kind of music did you listen to growing up in the house? But I love Timbaland, I love Pharrell. Yeah, that would kind of defeat the purpose. He uploaded the videos to Youtube under the name Dondada and they quickly racked up millions of views.
When I came to prison, I had like songs. Yeah we did it all.

After the porch freestyles, he dropped Plugged Ina mixtape that drastically departed from the sound that put him on and ended up disappointing many core fans.
I just like to keep it real and that was my tool for prison.
I always had a tune in my head since I was a boy. Put it like this: A lot of these beats are making people, man. I just came off tour in France. When I came home, I was looking for a job. Yeah everything on tap. I got tired of everyone saying I sound like Scarface. You remind a lot of people of Scarface.
When I do concerts, man….

How was it coming home from prison? Please take a second to donate on Patreon! That was my gospel. I did eight years in prison for some assault charges and stuff, got out and my homeboy was just recording me and he started putting it up on Youtube. I want to do a track with everybody.
How did the song with Scarface come about? I really keep it to myself. I guess I met somebody…I mean I had a couple samples of it. What were Pharrel and Timbo calling you for? By the way you rap, it sounds like you read a ton of books.

After serving almost a decade in prison, Alpoko Don came home to Greenville, South Carolina in May of and started banging on his porch with alplko pen and rapping to it. It was my cousin.
