Brooklyn’s very own, Papoose is one of the best lyricists in the game and he’s back with a new album!
Endangered Species is Papoose’s fourth studio album. The 12-track project has features from French Montana, Nigel Hall, Conway The Machine, Nigel Hall, and DJ Premier. Pap goes “ultra black” on the album and focuses the culture, health, survival, and Black Lives Matter issues.
The album title is for the gem artists like Pap, who is an “endangered species,” but also black people who are being murdered at a high rate. In a press release, he said,
“True artists are indeed an Endangered Species these days; we rarely exist anymore! Our people are an Endangered Species and we are being shot down by police every other day. With everything else we have to deal with on a daily basis, so many of us became victims of Covid-19. I didn’t as so much choose the title for this album, as it did choose it for me.”
