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


“Cure” ft. Erykah Badu

“That record, that’s the only one I’m not gonna give too much details about. I want people to get that experience when they hear it. I just think that record’s gonna change the world, honestly. Erykah Badu—we all know what she represents. She’s very talented and that record is a life-changer right there. For real, a real serious record. People always ask me, ‘Out of all the records you did, what’s your favorite record?’ and I never had an answer for that. That, I’m going on the record, it’s my favorite record that I ever did. Real talk. That’s my favorite Papoose record. That’s all I can say.

“We actually was over the phone trading thoughts. At the time, I was in Amsterdam. I’ll never forget, I was in Amsterdam and she got on the phone and she was like, ‘Yo, I like the joint.’ She was playing piano and all that to the record. We mixed it down and had to take that particular part out, but she really got intricate with it. I’m a fan of her, period, whether she’s a fan of me or not. The connection was made through another friend who thought what I bring to the table as an artist and what she brings would have good results and he was right. So get ready for that one. I love that record.”
