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



“‘R.I.P’ is a record that’s paying homage to people that passed away in my life. I lost a lot of people. I had a lot of people who supported me. I had a manager who was busting his ass to help me get on and that was one of the only things he wanted, but he actually passed before he got to see me get a chance to be a part of the music business. I have friends who wanted to see. I’ve been doing this so long. Not even concerning me being successful, but they just wanted to be successful in life and they’re life was stopped early. That record is basically just giving homage to those who are gone but not forgotten. If you lost somebody in your life – grandmother, uncle, aunt, anybody – that’s what that record is. It’s a tribute to the fallen soldiers. I name a lot of people who was a part of my life and passed away at the end of the record. I named everybody who I could remember at the time. I love that record. That’s one of my favorites too. I lost a lot of people over the years, so that record, that was for them on the album, letting them know I finally did it, communicating to them through that record.”
