Biography

There are at least two artists with the name Poor.

1. Poor is the stage name of Adrian Gilmore (Born December 13th) an emcee, artist, community organizer from Houston Texas. Poor is known for his reality writing, and relatable lyrics, and as a member of the Northern California group Tribe of Levi.

The name is an artist’s statement. It doesn’t reflect on how much money he lacks. It is more of a reminder for him to never forget where he came from. His writing reflects a lot of his emotions & silliness. Ever since he heard the song “Word up” by Cameo he’s been into hip-hop. Born in 1982 so that means he’s had a 20 year relationship with rap & feels as if he has a responsibility to speak to the people. Putting together songs since he was 8 yrs old and doing shows since he was 13, in 2006 he dropped his 1st solo album, “For What Its Worth,” and followed it up with 2010’s Rayz which features production by Lee Bannon, Gibberish and Poor himself. ”I’m just me and I still feel as if there’s more room to grow.”

2. Australian Heavy Metal band, originally called The Poor Boys in 1992, the changed their name to The Poor when they discovery a similar band with the same name. With the release of the album WHO CARES in 1994, they toured the US with The Scorpions and with “Honest” James Young’s uncles Angus Young and Malcolm Young from AC/DC on their 1996 US tour.
