Papoose Songs

  • Respect
    DJ Kay Slay recently unveiled an all-Brooklyn collab with Fame, Maino, Troy Ave, Papoose, and Uncle Murda, and now he's back with some even bigger NYC stars, from Queens and Staten Island, Raekwon and Prodigy. BK's Papoose, always held down by NYC DJs, is also back, joining Chef and Prodigy on "Respect," off Slay's upcoming mixtape, Shadow of the Sun. 
  • Get Off The Ground (DJ Premier Mix)
    Get Off The Ground (DJ Premier Mix)
    The final song on Termanology's Term Brady EP is a seven-and-a-half minute party cut called "Get Off the Ground" that features EIGHT different rappers, most of whom hail from New York City: Sean Price, his protege Ruste Juxx, Lil' Fame of M.O.P., Justin Tyme, Hannibal Staxx, Papoose, & Term's fellow Lawrence, MA emcee Reks. As the cherry on top, it also features some scratches from the venerable DJ Premier.
  • Hold The City Down
    Hold The City Down
    New York might not be the ruling rap hub it was in the 90s, but it doesn't mean artists still aren't repping it the same way. Papoose and DJ Premier will always put on for their city, and today they've come together to do just that."Hold The City Down" upholds New York rap traditions, with Papoose bringing gritty, precise lyricism to Premier's hard boom bap drums and signature sample scratching on the chorus. The song will appear on the NBA 2k16 soundtrack, which has been curated by DJ Mustard, DJ Khaled, as well as Premier himself. Look out for the full OST to drop soon.
  • Straight Outta Brooklyn
    Straight Outta Brooklyn
    It’s been a minute since DJ Kay Slay last dropped off one of his monster posse cuts, but today he returns with just that. Calling on just about every rapper from Brooklyn, Slay releases the collab “Straight Outta Brooklyn,” featuring Maino, Fame, Papoose, Uncle Murda, Troy Ave, Moe Chipps, and Lucky Don. The New York City collab will see life on Kay Slay’s upcoming mixtape, Shadow of the Sun, which drops next month. Take a listen to the 5-minute onslaught and let us know who went the hardest.

    After letting fans the DJ Premier-produced cut "The Plug" the other week, Papoose is back this Monday morning with another leak off the upcoming album You Can't Stop Destiny. We heard a few shout outs from Remy Ma on the very New York "The Plug," but here she delivers a proper verse with assistance from Ty Dolla $ign.
  • The Plug
    The Plug
    This morning we received the news that Pap and long-time girlfriend Remy Ma will appear on the forthcoming season of VH1's popular TV show "Love & Hip-Hop: New York." The New York native keeps the press going, with the release of a new leak off his upcoming album You Can't Stop Destiny.
  • The Bank
    The Bank
    Papoose is not one to phone in his rhymes, but his new Ron Browz-produced single, "The Bank," finds him going even harder than usual. Sticking to blazing double-time that would make Eminem and Busta Rhymes proud, Pap manages to pack five times as many syllables as you'd find in your average 3-minute rap track. The record comes off of his upcoming sophomore album, You Can't Stop Destiny, which will pair him with collaborators like DJ Premier, Havoc, Ty Dolla $ign, Troy Ave, Maino, Red Café, and of course, Remy Ma.
  • MMM (Remix)
    MMM (Remix)
    Cassidy continues to keep the new music coming. After hitting us with the track “Lets Go Champ”, the Philly native decides to return and give his March release “MMM” the MEGA-remix treatment, recruiting Fred Money, Vado, Uncle Murda, Vado, JR Writer, Fat Trel, Dave East, Chubby Jag, Compton Menace, Red Café, Papoose, Drag-On, and Fred Da Godson.
  • Mobbin
    The other day Papoose announced a new album, You Can't Stop Destiny, while revealing the artwork, tracklist and release date. He also promised the first single off the album would arrive today, so here it is. Pap enlists Havoc to cook up some dope New York production, and taps fellow New York rapper Troy Ave for a verse on "Mobbin." It really is an NY affair.
  • Keep It Thoro (Freestyle)
    Keep It Thoro (Freestyle)
    Papoose is among the crop of New York rappers who have spent the last two months or so jolting new life into bygone beats from their city (there should be a name for this phenomenon-- any ideas?), and today he's back with another. This one comes in over The Alchemist's beat for Prodigy's "Keep It Thoro." Rapping atop the staccato piano chords, Pap talks about transporting bricks to Atlantic City, and lashes out at side-switchers, who he suggests are treasonous. The subject matter's nothing new, but as usual, he delivers every bar with conviction.
  • Broken Slanguage
    Broken Slanguage
    Outside of Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj, you'd be hard pressed to find a couple who are more talented on the mic than Remy Ma and Papoose. The veteran husband-wife team haven't appeared on a track together since Remy got out of jail last summer, until today. Here's "Broken Slanguage."
  • Street Dreams
    Street Dreams
    A lot of fellow rappers have been responding to Chinx's murder on their various social media outlets, and paying homage to the former Coke Boy rapper. Even so, French Montana felt it necessary to call out those who were putting out negative vibes in the wake of the tragedy. 
  • Get At Me Dog (Freestyle)
    Get At Me Dog (Freestyle)
    BT Express' "Everything Good to You (Ain't Always Good for You)" has been sampled in so many rap records, it's difficult to even choose a definitive use of it. We've heard it flipped on songs by EPMD, Mase, Beanie Siegel, and the biggest crew record to ever come out of Canada, "Northern Touch". the record that got the most attention was most certainly DMX's "Get At Me Dog," and that's the one that Papoose has decided to freestyle over today. 
  • Blackout (Freestyle)
    Blackout (Freestyle)
    After getting "Banned From Radio" on his freestyle last week, Papoose joins his NY comrades Jadakiss, Styles P and Fabolous (who hasn't dropped one yet, but will tonight) in dropping a new one today. This one's over a classic DMX joint, and it's titled "Blackout."
  • Banned From Radio (Freestyle)
    Banned From Radio (Freestyle)
    There's been a recent trend of New York OGs reaching back to the 90s for freestyle inspiration, and Papoose has joined the club of Fabolous, Lloyd Banks, and the like with a new freestyle over Big Pun's "Banned From TV". Of course, this one has been something of a classic freestyle record for some time, with on eof the most memorable takes coming from Lil Wayne on his No Ceilings mixtape. While he has a lot to live up to, Pap holds his own here, since after all, this is the kinda beat Remy Ma's better half was built for.
  • The Family
    The Family
    New York's Papoose continues to take on some classic instrumentals for freestyles, similar to what we've been hearing from Jadakiss these days. After taking on Raekwon's "Incarcerated Surfaces" last week, this week he goes the Roc-A-Fella route, utilizing Amil, Memphis Bleek, Beanie Sigel and Jay Z's 2000 "4 Da Fam" beat. The song serves as a leak off his upcoming mixtape You Can't Stop Destiny.
  • Incarcerated Surfaces (Freestyle)
    Incarcerated Surfaces (Freestyle)
    Papoose continues to keep the freestyles coming. A couple weeks ago, Pap released a freestye over Meek Mill’s hard street cut “Monster”, and now tonight he returns with another one, this time over Raekwon classic record “Incarcerated Surfaces”.
  • I Love The Game
    I Love The Game
    DJ Kay Slay continues to keep the posse cuts coming. After hitting us with tracks like "I Declare War" & "Undefeated" recently, the NYC DJ decides to come through today and do it all over again, this time recruiting Papoose and Trick Trick for "I Love The Game". Produced by Stan The Man, this boisterous posse cut will see life on Kay Slay's upcoming mixtape, The Industry Purge, which drops next week. Listen as Papoose and Trick Trick flex their lyrical muscles and rap about their love for the game. Track available for free download too FYI.
  • Monster (Freestyle)
    Monster (Freestyle)
    After reappearing in the public eye through his Summer Jam stage crash, Papoose became inescapable for a hot minute, freestyling over any and every hot instrumental, and interpreting Kendrick Lamar's BET Cypher verse as directed at him. Since then, his releases have been a little more sporadic, but if he sees a beat hot enough to attack (and Remy Ma hasn't already destroyed it), he's likely to put a 16 or two on it.Meek Mill's "Monster" has inspired Pap to go in, and while Meek's bars are tough to keep up with, he holds his own, shouting out Remy throughout.
  • No Love
    No Love
    Papoose generally keeps things pretty New York, which does not generally include 80s power pop acts. Regardless, he's pulled a sample from The Outfield's 1986 track, "Your Love", which when you think about some of the sample sources from Cam'ron's Purple Haze, may not be that off-base after all.
