Pooch Hall Rapping Now and Not Officially Done With ‘The Game’?
Pooch Hall says that he isn’t officially done with The Game and talks about his upcoming rap career.
Last month Pooch Hall and Tia Mowry were let go from the popular BET series The Game. At the time Pooch wasn’t saying much and while Tia has confirmed “Melanie” won’t be back next season, Hall went on The Breakfast Club to lay some things out. He first rapped about The Game situation. Ultimately he’s saying “My stuff is being worked out.” But this has people confused since he’s set to star in a Showtime series, Ray Donovan. Hall said on the air that Showtime is okay with him shooting their series and having a recurring role on The Game…
“I booked this big project called Ray Donovan on Showtime. It’s probably one of the biggest, if not the biggest pilots of 2012, and I got lucky man. We just got the news yesterday that it got picked up officially. But in my contract, because sometimes you can’t do two shows but because it’s cable, Showtime said, ‘You can still do The Game, they’re just in second position now.’ So the ball gets thrown back to BET. With that being said, now we just waiting on what BET wants to do.”
So in the coming months Hall may have two acting gigs to worry about, on top of his other recently announced gig, rapper. He’s teaming up with Consequence to dive into the music world.
“I’ma keep it one hunnid man, Cons put me in the booth. So we kinda came up with something and the whole time we was trying to figure out what we’re gonna do and I told him, I want to keep it fun, I want to keep it about my fans, I want to make music that people can enjoy and have fun, where we have grandma’s and mom’s getting out there seats to go on the dance floor.”
Pooch Hall may be the next big thing, or he may just stay the guy who got axed from a hit BET series and went on to make a rap record that didn’t fare too well. We won’t know for sure until new episodes of The Game are out and the music is in our ears.
