P-Soup: The Suburban Legend
"P-Soup isn't that thug that will make you feel invincible when you play his CD. P-Soup isn`t that one hit wonder that will drop a phat single then disappear from existence. P-Soup isn`t that underground mc that will shine to the true Hip-Hop fans but never get due props for his material. P-Soup is that mc that will help restore Hip- Hop to it`s original form and help us all remember it`s aboutthat one word a lot of us have forgotten...representin`."
- P-Soup Sept. 15, 2000.
The Virginia native born as Ahmad Nakiell Johnson adopted the name "P Soup" in 1989 after hearing "aint no half steppin" by Big Daddy Kane for thr first time. Born in Union City, GA the VA MC`s family moved to Virginia in 1976. "Home sweet home..", says P Soup about his home town Reston, Virginia. Back by older brother and highly respected producer "Justice" P Soup has become a well respected local artist in theVA area. Since meeting such successful artists as Montell Jordan, DMX, Naughty By Nature and Missy Elliot to name a few as well as working with MYA, Soup feels he has what it takes to take the industry by storm. P Soup wants to restore Hip Hop to its original form and show these newjacks what an MC is supposed to be.
Since he began writing in 1989 Soup has gone through a multitude of groups and crews but none seemed to have the flavor and ear-catching sound of what he has been able to develop as a solo artist. "...I knew I had a sound and a delivery that can be successful in 1995 when people locally were coming up to me I didn't even know, giving me props...im not one to brag on my own material, but when I kept playing my tracks over and over I new I had something to offer..", adds P Soup. Every artist goes through there frustrations especially in this industry, but Soup always finds a way to remember who he is and what he is capable of. Its only a matter of time before labels and fans find out who the "Suburban Legend" really is. "Suburban Legend", a shell and a concept created by Soup, due to his longevity (13 years rhyming) and his local status. "..MC`s from the Burbs arent glorified I guess cause we arent from *the hood*...I aint mad, its all good I just want to get my spect due..."-explains Soup. The 27 year old father of 2 sons wont give up until the world has heard him. Then he will ultimately prove he is a "Suburban Legend".
