There’s no secret that Papoose is one of the most thorough lyricists in the history of Hip Hop. From his relentless freestyles to his impeccable mixtape and album catalog, the New York emcee has solidified himself as one of the greats with no hesitation. With today’s music landscape lead by the younger generation these days (as it very well should be), it’s a blessing to receive new music courtesy of the old heads from time to time. By adding fuel to today’s fire with the release of his fourth studio album Endangered Species, spooky season has just gotten that much better.
Speaking on his IG live earlier yesterday, the rapper spoke on creating while having writers/creators block:
The worst time to create is when you have a creative block. Most of the time when artists are have that block, they’re attempting to write a rhyme for a certain reason. If you’re saying to yourself “I wanna finish this project,” shit gon come out wack because you just trying to finish a project. You not creating from the HEART. How do you feel? What inspires you? What do you like? What do you dislike? — I feel like that’s when the dopest rhymes and songs come out when people are genuine and honest when they are creating.
Last week, Papoose shared some words with REVOLT regarding the way he orchestrated Endangered Species during the COVID-19 pandemic as well as other topics like his wife Remy Ma’s involvement, how his classic “Touch It (Remix)” verse came about and a lot more.
Weighing in at 12 records, Pap secured four prominent features that helped mold this album into what it is: Conway The Machine, French Montana, Nigel Hall, and the legendary DJ Premier. If you’re reading this, press play on Endangered Species below.
