Interview: Prince Po For Unkut.com

Half of legendary Queens group Simply II Positive MCs Organized Konfusion, Prince Po[etry] gets up with Robbie of Unkut.com to speak on how and where he came up in Hip-Hop, the wealth of talent that he went to high school with and how often he and Monch connect nowadays...
