Papoose Speaks On "King Of NY” Comments Made Via Twitter

Papoose stands by his "King Of NY” claims, says people are "bothered by the truth.”

New York City rapper Papoose caused quite the commotion on the social networking site Twitter after referring to himself as the “King Of NY” in a series of Tweets made yesterday (September 28).

“The king of ny city is back whatsup peasants #kng of ny talk,” said Papoose in one of his many Tweets.

And during an interview with Forbez DVD, Papoose went on to clarify his statements and reveal that he’s wholeheartedly standing behind his “King Of NY” statements.

“When the truth come out sometimes people get a little bothered by the truth. ..More or less man the reason why I let knowledge be born that I’m the king is because it’s time,” Papoose explained. “It’s 2011 so if you know anything about yourself then you know that’s the year of the king…I’mma start off by saying that it’s nobody nicer than me in New York. I’m the king of New York. I couldn’t give less than a fuck how a nigga feel about it.”

Papoose went on to speak on various occurrences in which he felt he was the only rapper to speak out for the people through his music.  

“Just to elaborate on that - these dudes it’s the same thing on every record, there’s no versatility. You understand what I’m saying? When Sean Bell got shot who stepped up to the plate? It was the voice of the ghetto,” said Papoose. “When Hurricane Katrina hit and George Bush – and don’t say Kanye. Cause Kanye made an outburst but I did it in song format like a real lyricist supposed to do. When Katrina hit and George Bush didn’t acknowledge our people over there, who spoke up? Who’s teaching all our people in the penitentiary how to beat they cases?”

Papoose Says He Is The KING OF NEW YORK! No One Else!

    Great interview. Papoose is one of the smartest cats all time but if he thinks saying that Barack Obama's policies are bad equate with racial slander he needs to go do some studying at the core of the what the 5% nation is about. Illusion deceives us all. And until you do your own knowledge and learn something for yourself, don't take my opinion, your friend's, or the media's. someone watch this for yourself and hook Papoose up with it as well. Looks like KRS-One was correct in his assessment of our current President.!

    Then the chess reference... Is he aware of the limitations of the King piece on a chess board? Is he aware that the most powerful chess piece is the QUEEN? *fart sound* King of what? Shut up, 'Poose.

  • Stan

    Umm... Did he just quote Marvin Gaye, but credit Al Green? *fart sound*

    Papoose King of NY, nigga you cant even buy a use car most less to be a king of anything, you mean the KING of being STUPID.

  • Info

    Nigga aint nobody mad at you fool, I am the king of NY, not you, where the hell all these clownes keep coming from, someone need to give these guy a dictionary and a map cause it clear to see they dont know what is the meaning of a King and a god either.

    • KING

      @ Teacha nigga check yourself, trying to correct someone else grammar and prove that you are the dumbass instead, you just make your ass look real stupid,if anyone need to go back to elementary school is you loser! and oh yeah grap a dictionary while you are there you will find out there is no such was as tryna, as you use.

      Teacha get a live you the dumbass it call mistake while one type, i guess you are perfect, but you sound stupid

    • Teacha

      what is clear is your lack of correct grammar? lol! you can't be a "king" until you first master language arts son! dumbass! clown has no 'e' in its spelling...and you meant "this guy" not "these guy" the one that need the dictionary...tryna claim King and can't master spelling...basic elementary rules! loser!

  • Babylonian

    "...nation of Thug-a-cation y'all want us to wild out...!" Papoose teaches...its not meant for all...there are percentages of OUR people that the education is meant for...not like yo favorite, watered down, radio only, rapper! Yall used to the rooks and knights tryna run shit...they work for the KING! Papoose runnin shit...yall not listenin or you concerned how cute he is to yo favorite rapper!


    Although... I can't knock anybody for having confidence..he susposed to think he is the best at what he do.....But need to have a least ONE NOTABLE ALBUM or body of work before he can yell that. Biggie called himself KING of NY...and he had "READY TO DIE",,AND "LIFE AFTER DEATH" to back that up....Nas got back up his claims...jay-z got Blue Print.....what the hell does Papoose got?? Rap verses and some lyrics are not enough...He needs a body of work to back them claims up PERIOD. Till then shut the hell up..get to the studio and drop some quality music...UNIVERSAL music.. the type of muisic that people bump in the south, midwest,,,and west coast.

    I wish Pap was the king, but he got some convincing to do after his last few tracks. Pap, Joell, Fab, Vado, Juelz, Yonas, Fred... Who the fuck saying NY Rap is dead???

  • HRH

    We been sayin this since 2010. Pap' is the King of NY. Who else is there? Nas, HOV, and DMX are on a GOD's level. And, after just those 3, you got Papoose. Who else has been able to provide a track with as much knowledge as Pap'? I think we all agree... Jada' aint up to par. Pap' is the King.

    • HRH

    I'm gone disregard all the ignorant reasons he believes makes him King of NY. All this bs in hip-hop is the reason I listen to other genres of music more than hip-hop...

  • 2nPac

    Man, I was really rooting for this dude to make it. Copped all his mixtapes. But where the hell has he been? He was the "1.5 million dollar man" and now self-proclaimed "King of NY"? Hell Nah!

  • Anonymous

    honestly after that busta touch it rmx song I neva heard much mo from this cat. Maybe he is maybe he ain't, no reason to demolish his claims. And what the fuck does cooperate mo'fuckas have to do with this? he ain't necessarily talkin bout money he means he's the king of REAL as in ACTUAL HIP HOP in NY, today. And y'all quick to point out that a brotha broke but least he's doing something what y'all doing? nothing

    king with nothing to show for it, makes a lot of since.

  • V-Nasty is God

    Well since New York is dead and I haven't heard of Papoose since that Alphabet rap YEARS ago, he probably would fit as the King of NY. He can rap (*cough* by biting Big L *cough*), but his Nacirema album got pushed back further than both Dr. Dre's Detox and Lebron James' Hairline combined. That was a waste of 1.5 million dollars. Nobody is checking for him. Or New York for that matter. Now the West Coast is where it's at. We got the super talented lyricist Hopsin. We got best rap group out OFWGKTA. We got the sexy group White Girl Mob. We got the swagged out Based God himself. Nobody is touching the West Siiiiide. SWAG. P.S. Fuck the Game

      Lmfao sorry yo people checking for ny wayy more more then cali. Imo at the moment jadas the king of ny but jay just dropped wtt nas is droppin d block droppin..detroits killin it right now imo.

Lmfao detox more checked for then lil b, ofwtfever, or the stupid cunts in white girl mob added together. Dont get me wrong i seen v nastys picture on this shit she could get it.

    • TellDaTruth

How the FUCK can u shout out GARBAGE ass Lil B and diss the whole NY in the same statement...And get it right the dudes niggas is checkin for on the west are Game, Crooked, Black Hippy, and Blu...Don't nobody give a flying fuck about Lil B and the White Girl Mob!!!

    He has more whack lines than Wayne. For every good one, there are 10 that are whack as fuck. Papoose raps EVERY SINGLE line he thinks of, no matter if they are good or terrible. Look at this: Dude is so fucking whack, it's unbelievable.

      Dude i aint the bigget pap fan...but most of those lines were 10x 90% of hiphop right now..and the ones that werent seem to have been cut off to make them not make any sense..that son of a gun lines sick if u ask me.

    “Just to elaborate on that - these dudes it’s the same thing on every record, there’s no versatility. You understand what I’m saying? Doesn't he just use a sample of a Notorious line every hook?

  • Anonymous

    Dude's statements are ridiculous beyond belief. Papoose, you're the King Of NY in your own world.

  • Obi Patrick

    Pap my nigga but without a resume that's worthy of being considered legacy, he isn't even a pauper never mind being a King. Proclaiming a title as great as that on twitter without the streets cosigning it is more like court jester behaviour rather than King behaviour.

  • Big Dan

    Cut him some slack. He's looking for attention and he knows that statement will do it. You gotta love this statement: "Who’s teaching all our people in the penitentiary how to beat they cases?” That's with his girl currently stuck in the big and not getting any slack.
