Pablo Petey Bio

Moses Barrett III, known by the stage name Petey Pablo, is an American Southern hip hop artist from Raleigh, North Carolina.

He is best known for his hit singles "Raise Up" and "Freek-a-Leek", along with rapping on Ciara's Billboard Hot 100 #1 single "Goodies".

Petey Pablo was arrested in Raleigh, North Carolina for armed robbery in June 1993 and sentenced to 14 years. He also lived in Pasquotank County, North Carolina.

He spent six years in prison and on his release moved to New York City, where he met Black Rob and Busta Rhymes, and, according to legend, was signed by the A&R director of Jive Records after hearing him rapping in a club bathroom. After a few guest spots, his first solo single was "Raise Up" in 2001 at the age of 22, produced by Timbaland, followed by debut album Diary of a Sinner: 1st Entry the same year. "Raise Up" was helped by rotation on MTV and heavy play on urban radio, reaching #25 on the Billboard Hot 100 and topping the Hot Rap Singles Chart.
