Papoose Released From Jive Records Contract

papoose1.jpgDuring his Streetsweeper’s Radio show on Sirius Satellite Radio last night, DJ Kay Slay announced that his artist and protégé Papoose has been released from his contract with Jive Records. Sounding relieved, Slay called the one-year term that Pap was signed to the label “a year of hell” and expressed his distaste for the A&R process at the company. But moments later, the Drama King sent shoutouts to Jive executives Barry Weiss and Peter Thea for believing in Pap from the beginning and making the deal happen. The Brooklyn MC’s contract with Jive was reported to be worth $1.5 million, and caused a stir within the hip-hop community when it was announced last summer.
