the difference between me and you is that i listen while you are an unfocused listener.

which line of papoose do you want me to decipher for your small brain wherein you hear no purpose?

No deciphering necessary really, he does enunciate fine.

People just get rhyming tons of words confused with top notch MC-ing on a higher level. Papoose is a great mixtape MC, and an impressive flower, but he still has a lot to prove as a rapper. He's young, no album yet even so that is totally fine. He might get there, but he's not there yet.

Pun was an example of an MC who rhymes tons of words with all of them counting for something. Eminem too, Nas sometimes too, Rakim even. There's plenty.

the bubonic tonic exotic melodic brollic bionic psychotic hypnotic kinda chronic

that's cool to kick for your buddies, but it's not top notch MC-ing quite yet.

You aren't understanding the concept.

That bubonic tonic exotic brohllic bionic psychotic verse is not something that Common would spit first of all cuz it's not his style.

You are comparing apples and oranges.

Pap makes lyrical music, focused music, hype music, aggressive music, music with a message, and storytelling sometimes. You just happen to embed a freestyle that was different style than common's, so it's an unfair comparison.

Papoose - Two Shots

check two shots, that's some storytelling there.

Honestly, I think you got good taste in music, I purchased finding forever, but you need to learn to differientiate with styles.

There are Pap songs that can go against common, but this freestyle isnt' one of them, but that doesn't mean it ain't good, it's different and mad hype.

you're right, it's definitely comparing apples to oranges. I just prefer apples (or oranges, depending on what we assign to which MC ha)

Papoose has some story telling songs, and some hot tracks that employ different styles, but to me he has to yet to deliver on his potential.

I'm not the biggest Common fan in the world, but I think he's tighter than Pap overall due to his better understanding of the craft at this point in time, and his superior level of experience. Which is only natural since he has been doing this for much longer. If you listen to old Common Sense it actually might remind you of current Pap here and there.

A related note: do you feel Pap will ever become an accepted cross-over MC in the vein of 50, Jay-Z, Common, etc. Or do you think he'll be for the street forever?

Common is a complete total faggot. He sucks. What the fuck is he saying? He should quit rapping and just stick to being a guest on Oprah. As far as Papoose, I could compare him to Big Daddy Kane or Big L. Sick punchlines, nice rhythm, rhyming mutiple words like the way L or Kane did.

I think Common is an excellent artist, but not nearly as versatile as Papoose.

Just like Lupe, Lupe is great but he's not at all versatile, yet excellent at what he does.

You may be right, Pap may have yet to deliver on his potential but remember you are basing that on mixtape songs, his album isn't out yet.

With the following he has based on mixtapes alone, wow, no artist has ever done that in history, hip hop or pop or wtv.

Regarding your sidenote question, I hope he remains street. Because bang it out and fitted hat low were horrible! He's not that good when he's not himself.

Keep in mind though that fitted hat low is getting mad love from non-pap fans, so he's expanding his fanbase.

I don't think he'll be a cross-over like 50 cent or even be accepted as such, maybe more of a Jay-Z.

If anything, I think he can be compared to Madonna and micheal jackson more, lemme explain first, pull ur jaw back up, lol.

Pap is so versatile that he is able to reinvent himself many times with perfect execution just like Madonna and Micheal Jackson did many times.

But for you to undestand i'd have to know how much Pap did you listen to?

if you go to and click on albums you get download all his mixtapes fast and free.

Blogger Undisputed Wes said...

can you recommend one specific mixtape from that site so I'm not overwhelmed with material?

Menace to Society pt. 2
A Threat and A Promise

Get those two mixtapes to start out with.

But you should get all of them eventually.

His next mixtape, Already A Legend drops tomorrow.

ill start with menace! thanks

So how do you like it so far?

In the title song he sings from the perspective of the little kid on the bicycle all grown up.

Make sure you download a threat and a promise too, that's considered his best mixtape.

Well, this is quite a debate! I don't know a lot about American rappers since I've been living here just two years, but in my country, Ukraine, we have a rapper named Miccaz and it's like Viagra Online : you never know what he's selling you. Bunch of rhymes with no meaning at all. I don't know if this is the case here, but I understand the point of Undisputed Wes.
