It looks like Papoose is taking his talents to South Beach and signing with Maybach Music Group. The Brooklyn MC recently announced the move on a new track titled, “Back on My Bullshit” remix, which features MMG head honcho Rick Ross and Jaquae.
On the high-powered track, Pap gets the big news out of the way early. Spitting a rapid-fire flow, he starts off his verse with the lines, “This summer, I’m only ridin’ in convertibles, son/I’m signed to MMG, money, murder and guns/Rick Ross was official, I knew him a long time/’Cause he took off his shades just so he can look in my eye.” Rozay reveals a long-standing relationship with the New York spitta on his verse rapping, “Met Pap in ’96, fresh off the bus/Residue in my raps from holdin’ dust/I didn’t wanna in case I made her touch her toes/We touchin’ money but really, who touch the most?” If official, this signing could be the career boost the elite lyricist is looking for. Pap has been known as an ill spitta on the mixtape scene for years, but has yet to crack the code as far as gaining mainstream footing. He has released a slew of mixtapes and two albums, including his debut The Nacirema Dream in 2013 and the sophomore LP, You Can’t Stop Destiny, in 2015.
Do you think Pap would be a good fit at the house that the Bawse built?
