Poverty's music is heavily based on his upbringings and hardscrabble experiences as a homeless person going from one shelter to another in Portland, Maine. His honest lyrics earned him an underground following, a ghostwriting gig with Crazy Town, and a recording contract for an album, Rise From Ruin, in which he rhymed over Alchemist- and Erick Sermon-produced tracks. We say it's time for a Hobo Junction reunion!
