Jessie Lorenzo Buford (born January 12, 1994), also known by his stage name Poey, is an up and coming rapper, songwriter, poet, and activist out of the urban community of Memphis, Tennessee. He is the president and founder of an organization named Brother Up Society, a non-profit organization that focuses on giving aid and mentorship to those living in inner city communities. His surroundings inspired him to begin writing poetry at the age of fifteen and he later picked up the mic at the age of seventeen.

Poey is an independent artist who was raised with eight brothers and sister in a three bedroom, section 8, one story home. His story is the epitome of a rose growing from concrete. Poey’s material connects with fans on a conscious level finding common grounds in the types of experiences he has encountered by reacting to negative situations in a positive manner.

He paints vivid pictures of his lifestyle through his poetry and music using his unique sound. His first single entitled “From The Streets” is set to drop in the summer of 2015 off of his upcoming EP album “Art Of Struggle.” Poey is destined for greatness in the future of the Hip Hop entertainment world.
