For much of his career, Papoose has been paying his respects to lost peers and loved ones by way of his “Obituary” series, and this year is no different. Over the weekend, the Brooklyn rhymer liberated “Obituary 2021,” which sees production from Stan Da Man and is full of nods to the many who transitioned during the past twelve months — beginning with the late Biz Markie:
“Take these bars and play ’em in the cemetery, how many good people we lost, too many, Happy New Year, I hope your Christmas was merry, this is the 2021 obituary, Biz Markie, a legend, that’s what he is, a hip hop staple, nobody beats the Biz, born April 8th, 1964, grew up in Long Island, his music raised us all, ‘Just A Friend,’ top 40 in several countries, you caught the vapors, a real hip hop junkie…”
2021 was a busy year for Papoose, who mainly kept his fans fed by releasing an EP every single month and collaborating with heavyweights like Wiz Khalifa, E-40, Jim Jones, Vado, The Game, Smoke DZA, Anthony Hamilton, wife Remy Ma, and more. In addition to “Obituary 2021,” it’s clear that he has no plans of slowing down, either — taking to social media, Papoose revealed that he would soon be dropping a remix of the Lil Wayne and Timbaland-assisted “Thought I Was Gonna Stop” with some added help from Remy, 2 Chainz, and Busta Rhymes:
“This is just a snippet of what’s happening on this “Thought I was gonna stop” remix … I hope y’all ready! The … dragon @bustarhymes The Queen @remyma The ATL spitter @2chainz & of course @liltunechi his name speaks for itself.”
Fans can press play on Papoose‘s “Obituary 2021” below. “Thought I Was Gonna Stop (Remix)” officially makes landfall sometime prior to week’s end.
