Papoose Gives a Track-By-Track Breakdown of “The Nacirema Dream”


“Whats’s My Name” ft. Remy Ma

“‘What’s My Name’ basically is a fun record. I think people are gonna like it. When you with your significant other, and you’re doing what you all do, and you ask that question, ‘What’s my name?’ That record’s about that moment. You know what I’m saying? It’s talking about a couple of different things. Her verse, she’s talking about, ‘But as much as he accuse me I should’ve cheated. And even if I cheated, he wouldn’t believe it. ‘Cause right after I read it, messages get deleted.’ She’s saying stuff like that in her verse, and in my verse, I’m saying stuff like, ‘I knew she was a freak ’cause she had a earring in her tongue.’ Things of that nature. We having fun, sparring, going back and forth, and it’s really about that passionate moment when you’re with somebody that you’re intimate with. She might ask you, you ain’t gotta be less of a man, ‘Yo, what’s my name?’ And you might recite it, you might not, depending on how good it is. It’s a passionate moment. It’s a fun record.”

    I am not about to get excited about this, I mean this album was supposed to come out when I was a freshman in High School. I’m about to graduate College now. Waiting so long for ‘Detox’ is one thing, because Dr. Dre’s stature is at solid high and anything he touches, will turn into damn near gold. I just dont think Papoose has that same garuntee. as an M.C, yes, but as a songwriter, I dont know. Then again im not the biggest fan, Havent really followed up with his catalogue. Nothing is worse than when an artist talks up their album and when the album drops, It’s not as successful or as good as they made it seem. I think the music genre itself needs a lot more honesty. Music artist’s know if they put their full potential or beyond their full potential into a project. I dont think Music artists should say every project is their best project, Just be real, People/fans will respect the artist more if anything.

    Can’t wait to hear this. Been waiting since high school.


    Biggest problem is having That manager that he mentions (Ian)…. check his history cuz, he’s screwed everything he ever laid his hands on, and count yo money (then check Ian’s pockets). Don’t know how artsists are still falling for his shit…. Good luck with him!
