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


“Where I Come From” ft. Dada Stone, Odog, Manson, Kino & C-Brown of Thugacation

“That’s my crew. That was just an opportunity for them to showcase their talent. I’m in the position where I can finally put out a commercial album. Not commercial … but commercial level to reach the mainstream world. And I just wanted to give an opportunity for them to shine. They just exposing their talent on there, showcasing their talent. That’s my crew. They up next. That’s what that is. Family. I’m blood related to three of them guys. Our parents are sisters and brothers. The rest of them are other guys that I grew up with. That’s who I involve myself with. I don’t make new friends, really. I surround myself with family and people I knew for years. That’s what that is. And I always scream two things: dedication and nacirema dream. That’s two things you always heard Papoose represent. Finally, I get to hear them. They been on my mixtapes but, now they on the album.”

    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!
