In Case You’ve Been Missing … Petey Pablo


Name: Petey Pablo

Where You Find Him: On Twitter or in jail.

What You Might Know Him For And Why You Could’ve Cared: The North Carolinian rapper placed the Southern state on the mainstream rap radar couple years before the rise of acts like 9th Wonder and Little Brother. His quintessential, Timbaland-produced anthem “Raise Up,” which had men of all colors and creed to take off their shirts and spin them like a helicopter, reached number 25 on the Billboard Hot 100. With his debut Diary of a Sinner: 1st Entry reaching gold status, his single for the second album, “Freek-a-Leek” became an even bigger hit, becoming number 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 (and showcasing a luscious video with vixen Esther Baxter). It’s also noted that the rapper’s guest appearance on Ciara’s “Goodies,” made national attention.
