PAPOOSE BREAKS DOWN VERSES FROM YOU CAN’T STOP DESTINY

In a recent interview with WatchLOUD, Papoose broke down verses from his album You Can’t Stop Destiny. Pap gave insight on the “Mobbin,” “Michael Jackson,” “Revenge” and more. Here’s an excerpt below.

You Ain’t Built Like That

Tired of hearing about niggas doing it big
But they ain’t big enough to take care of they kids
He be Internet, shooting a vid
Couldn’t even help his baby moms move in the crib

It’s a lot of grown man out who are only concerned with themselves. They make sure they have the new this or that, but then you see their kids. They’re not taking care of their kids. They’re not being fathers. They’re not being real men. That line is basically about that. Step up and be a father to your child and take care of your kids. There are a lot of deadbeat dads out there. A lot of these dudes say they’re flossing and they’re ballers or gangsters, but that don’t make you a gangster if you’re not taking care of your family. So it’s just a line telling these dudes to get their priorities straight. Stop trying to floss on the internet making yourself seem like you’re more than what you are.

Tell you hurry up when it’s time for thugging in the streets
But take they time when they got a plug for you to eat

That line was aimed at individuals who might have an influence over some dudes who are real street niggas, or may be going down the wrong path, and instead of guiding them in the right direction, they’ll call them up for something negative and have them put in some work and then maybe put themselves in bad situation and these dudes won’t put up no lawyer money or bail money. That line goes out to all the real niggas out there, man. Don’t let nobody have you putting in work if they’re not going to support you when shit gets real.

Check out the rest over at WatchLoud.

DRAKE – BACK TO BACK (MEEK MILL DISS)

After a week of tweets, a lukewarm shot fired and nonsensical banter, Drake cuts loose “Back To Back” and it’s clearly a venom filled diss track aimed at Meek Mill. Did Drake bury Meek with this song? Ain’t nothing better than hip hop beef that stays on wax. Let’s see if Meek retorts.

Oh, and you have to understand the image that Drake had accompanying the song. It’s Joe Carter of the Toronto Blue Jays (Drake’s hometown) after smashing a championship clinching home run against the Philadelphia Phillies (Meek Mill’s hometown) in the 1993 World Series. Clever.
