New York’s Papoose is back and once again he proclaims himself the “king of New York” on his latest offering over Drake’s “Pound Cake” instrumental. Delivering a freestyle rendition of his own, Pap spits politically driven lyrics while taking the time to remind listeners of his impressive track “A to Z,” clarifies he makes music strictly for the love of the art and much more.
If you haven’t already heard, Papoose pulled a “Lil Mama” last night at HOT 97’s annual Summer Jam concert and was able to steal the stage for a one song performance of his new single “Get At Me” featuring Ron Browz. Following Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, and ScHoolboy Q’s performance the crowd was treated to a short set from New York MC Papoose who appeared to surprise everyone with his presence. After thoroughly investigating the matter, HOT 97’s Ebro discovered that Pap was able to pull off the stunt with the help of Kendrick Lamar and the TDE crew who purposely finished their set close to five minutes early in order to allow Pap the opportunity to perform. In the video clip below, watch as Papoose unexpectedly hits the stage and does his thing.
Ebro was also able to get the truth out from fellow radio host Peter Rosenberg the following morning who came clean that he secretly knew Papoose’s performance was going to go down but remained silent on that matter. According to Rosenberg and Ebro, the motive behind Kendrick’s assist was because years prior when K Dot was an upcoming artist Papoose looked out and took care of him. Take a look at the video footage below to see Ebro break the whole incident down live on the air during “The Realness” portion of the show.
In other news, Papoose did reveal that female rapper Remy Ma will be home sometime next year. It’s going to be interesting to see what the two artists have previously recorded together or what will come from any future studio sessions. Check out the audio/video below to hear Pap’s side of how it all went down.
