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


“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.”
