Papoose has been dropped by Jive Records.
The much sought after rapper was signed in 2006 on a reported $1.5m deal but since that time has been frustrated and it finally led to his release this year. On the issue, Kay Slay [his associate and famous battle instigating DJ] said:
“We have officially gotten our release from Jive fuckin records. It was like a fuckin year of hell… Unfortunately, we almost became victims of A&R hell….Free at last, free at last. We got our release from Jive Records, and we’re just moving on.”
When asked about what was next for him and Papoose, he remained tight lipped, but it is hoped his album The Nacirema Dream will be released before the year is out.
