“Turn It Up” ft. DJ Premier

“He’s actually speaking on the intro and he did the track. Honestly, I wouldn’t have done the album without Premier. Growing up a fan of hip-hop, if you’re a lyricist, you gotta have Premier on your album. I would’ve held the album up maybe five more years without Premier on it. I love that record, man. True hip-hop, in its purest form. I think the people, that’s how they’re gonna receive it. Classic Premier, cut and scratching. Dope record, ‘Turn It Up.’ Get busy, get excited. Lift your energy up. Lift yourself up. Turn it up. Whatever you’re doing, turn it up on ‘em. Make it more intense. That’s what that record is. It’s pure hip-hop, man. You know what Premier do—classic Premier joint.”

    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.

    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!
