Papoose has recently claimed that his problems go beyond Kendrick Lamar. The New York rapper says the entertainment industry as a whole has turned against him.
Papoose told XXL that ,”The industry is afraid of him”, and they are the reason for his lack of mainstream success.
“I got a mixtape I’ve been working on called Blackballed, because that’s what I am, I’ve been blackballed. I am the most feared MC, the industry is afraid of me, and that’s the only reason why I’m not in the position that I deserve to be in, but I keep resurfacing because you cannot deny talent, you cannot stop destiny,” Pap revealed in an interview. “So for me to always be in the headlines, in the worst and the best ways, every time they turn around, that’s just the reaction that takes place when you try to stop destiny or control talent and hold somebody back. This is what happens. It has a way of reacting. They’ll never be able to stop me or control what I do. But I am the most feared MC, and a lot of your favorite artists and execs–a lot of people hated on me, man. I’ve been hated on, and that’s the only reason I’m not in the position I deserve to be in. So that’s why that’s the title of my new mixtape, Blackballed.” (XXL Mag)
The Brooklyn rapper also spoke about his extreme focus on his music.
“I’m also working on my next album at the same time. I’m still working Nacirema Dream, it’s doing well for an independent release; I released it on my own, it charted, and it did extremely well for an independent project. I’m focused, man. I won’t let you down, never man.” (XXL Mag)
