Back in 2006, Brooklyn rapper Papoose was the name on everybody’s lips when he landed a massive deal with Jive Records worth a reported $1.5 million. He soon began work on his anticipated debut, The Nacirema Dream, however months turned into years and the LP was never released.
Over six years later, the rapper is finally set to drop the album independently in March. He has since unveiled its coverart and wrote an open letter to his fans. In it Pap discusses his long road to the album’s release, the “struggles, pain, blood, sweat, tears and joy” that are documented in the long delayed project, and of course, why it took so long.
“I been working on this album my entire life, those of you who followed me over the years know and have the material to prove it,” the rapper writes. “Countless chants of the words Nacierma Dream on the intros, outros, stage shows, and minds of myself and everybody on my team.
“As I grew up in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, I kept record and jotted down the struggle, pain, blood, sweat, tears, and joy of myself, and all the others that I experienced and witnessed in this country. This album is a complete reflection of that story, when I made my introduction into the music business, I was blessed with a reaction from the audience that landed me a 1.5 million dollar deal, and the benefit of the people all over the globe hailing my album as the album that will change hip-hop and place New York back at the top.”
The Nacirema Dream is slated to drop March 26th.
