Jacksonville, FL (Top40 Charts/ Upper League Management) - Duval County's own, Poloneius Pluck, so-named after Shakespeare's character who uttered the famous lines, "Above all else, to thine own self be true," was true, not only to his name, but to the city of Jacksonville as well—bringing back to Duval the title of "Freestyle Champ" after competing against a large pool of contestants at BET's annual Spring
Bling event this year in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Poloneius Pluck, more commonly known as P-Pluck, is a Jacksonville native having been born and raised in Jacksonville Florida, attending local area schools before leaving to attend college in Tallahassee. While in college, he was able to become the undisputed freestyle champion by taking home the "God MC Award" at a regional battle held at Floyd's Music in Tallahassee in 2004. Upon graduation from college, P-Pluck returned to his hometown of Jacksonville, where he stays busy giving live performances for his hometown crowd.
But P-Pluck does not limit himself to freestyling. He is also a lyricist and song-writer and his music has received air play on stations like WVHT Hot 105.7, WWLD Blazin' 102.3, and WBWT 100.7 the Beat. Additionally, he has been able to earn the Disc Makers' judges and the editors of Billboard Magazine's attention, earning a spot on the Independent Music World Series Southeast Heavy Hitters compilation album for two years straight.
Now, he adds the "Freestyle Champ" title from BET's Spring Bling, which airs on BET at 8 PM on Thursday, April 5, 2007, to his resume. Keep your ear to the streets for his album King of the Burbs but don't get him confused with the impostor "King of the Burbs," John Brown.
