Audio: Papoose – 2012 Obituary

In Hip Hop by Nick Russell

Papoose is back in action  and recently dropped his annual obituary, providing a more sensitive side to his character. Not the side ladled with innuendo and cheesy love lyrics but a heartfelt and endearing farewell to the year’s celebrity deceased.

Production has that ballad like feel but Papoose’s word play is still as clever as ever and he delivers props to the likes of Whitney Houston, Rodney King, and the legendary Chris Lighty of Violator Management.

I only wish he’d squeezed in a whole bar for Etta James and Shoved Dick Clark down a few pegs… But I Love Jazz and not Jizz.
