Papoose-The Mixtape Master.

papoose

Papoose is the definition of a mixtape artist.  Ever since his first appearance on Kool G Rap’s ’98 Roots of Evil album, the Brooklyn native has generated interest from record companies. Unfortunately, but a bad offer pushed him to produce and sell his own mixtapes.

It was outside Hot 97 in New York where DJ Kay Slay invited him on his radio show. That’s where Papoose impressed everyone with his rendition of “Alphaphetical Slaughter.”

The song, which would become his first single, earned him a deal with Streetsweepers Entertainment where he has thrived since and been featured on 13 of Kay Slay’s Streetsweeper series mixtapes.

The self-described “educated thug” has put out a total of 21 mixtapes to date. While many rappers strive for major record deals, Papoose seems to have grown accustomed to his place in the mixtape world after an unsuccessful year-long stint with Jive Records.

Good music is good music, whether you commercialize it or you make it what some consider complicated. If it’s hot, it’s hot; if it’s not, it’s not. I represent real lyricism and real talent. That’s what this is about.

Today marks the release of his 21st mixtape, fittingly titled 21 Gun Salute. It’s exactly what we’ve come to expect from one of the most consistent underground lyricists in the game.

Check two songs from his album below. Cover and tracklist after the jump.
