LISTEN: Papoose - Fitted Hat Low

Yes, Papoose killed the streets for a while with his mixtape performances and Kay Slay backing. Not to be a hater, but I still think it was an unwise business decision to sign Pap to a massive major label deal with an eye on crossing over and a huge sum to recoup from the advance. Street rap is his niche, and I just don't see him being a universally accepted pop rap star like say 50 Cent. On this track he talks about wounding your girl with his chain, he recites a Biggie line, and he has a pitched up faux children's voice on the hook. And Scott Storch, the already forgotten and never respected producer, contributed the beat.
