Pooh-Man, also known as MC Pooh or MC Pooh-Man (born Lawrence Lee Thomas, January 25, 1971)[1] is an American rap artist who has released several albums on various labels, including Jive Records.[2] His lyrics focused on the topics of sex, money and murder (his song "Sex, Money, and Murder" appeared on the soundtrack to the 1992 film Juice).[3] He also had a small role in the film Menace II Society, playing Doc.

He has been active in the music industry since the early 1990s onward.[4] His only charting album, 1992's Funky as I Wanna Be, gained notoriety for its risque cover, featured guest appearances by MC Breed, Too Short, and Ant Banks, and brought him his biggest success, peaking at #158 on the Billboard Top 200.
