Pouya on Life Before Rap: "No Hoes ... No F$&@ing Food"
Over the last few years, Twitter has become the diary of almost everyone's lives, where we air out personal grievances or document what we ate for lunch.
But Kevin Pouya, the 18-year-old rapper known simply as Pouya, prefers to use it for more practical purposes, especially with his female fans.
"On Twitter, I like to get buck and tell bitches I want to fuck straight up," he says. "And nine times out of ten, they tell me to come through, and sometimes they be like, 'Naw, I respect myself too much, but I fuck with your music.'"

Pouya's attempts aren't always unassisted. The "Get Buck" rapper makes full use of his 6000-plus loyal followers to get the attention of women he has his eyes set on. Pouya recalls one in particular named Little Miss Raider.
"I just tell all my fans, 'Yo, tweet this girl. Tell her to fuck with me,'" says Pouya. "And then they started telling her and she followed me, then I followed her. She's like, 'Who the fuck is Pouya?' And I quoted that shit. I'm like, 'Go ahead, tell her.'"
And they did. But even with songs such as "Gotta Go" and "You Know I Know (I Wanna Fuck)" off his Baby Bone EP, Pouya is more than willing to admit he "got no hoes" before rapping and says if it weren't for Twitter he'd probably end up a 40-year-old virgin. Funny how a couple mixtapes attract the opposite sex.
"When I first started rapping, I wasn't even rapping about bitches," Pouya remembers. "I was rapping about real shit like eating mac 'n' cheese and shit, because I didn't have no fucking food."
