Papoose Calls Remy Ma An Inspiration And Talks "Law Library" Series

Brooklyn's Papoose says his wife's incarceration "inspires him to do better" and he gives the motivation behind his "Law Library" series.

At the height of his popularity, Papoose was holding down magazine covers and signing what was rumored to be a $1.5 million deal with Jive Records. Since then the Brooklyn emcee has kept a rather low profile opting to support his incarcerated wife, Remy Ma and dropping independent projects. In an interview with Good Fella Media, Papoose revealed that Remy’s incarceration hasn’t been a hindrance to his career.

“It don’t mess with me at all,” Papoose explained. “It actually inspires me. It inspires me to do better, because that could be me in that situation. It could be you or anybody living in this country. None of us are exempt from that; it could happen to any one of us. Everybody that’s incarcerated is not guilty.”

It turns out that educating listeners on the ins and outs of the penal code has been a subject near and dear to Papoose’s heart long before his involvement with the former Terror Squad member. It essentially led to him creating his signature “Law Library” series.

“I’ve been through a lot in my life and lost a lot of family members and people I love to the judicial system,” Papoose said. “So just knowing that you going to that law library and analyzing your case can be the difference between you doing five to ten years or coming home—that’s what inspired me to make them records. As I’m reading it and looking at it, I’m passing on the knowledge to certain family members and certain friends. I’m like, ‘I need to give this to the world and let them hear it.’”

The full interview, which also features Papoose’s thoughts on the current crop of emcees and the concept of rapper beef can be seen below.

    Tell us how he meant it then, Dr. Phil. I'm not judging Remy Ma, but she got convicted. How then is the system or the defense lawyer to blame? You know they don't care mostly because they know 95% of their clients are in fact guilty, so pretending they can convince a judge to let them off with a warning is laughable. Papoose is just upset that he now has to cook, clean, vacuum, dust, and sell drugs. He needs his partner in crime back. Poor guy.

    If Pap and remy were to do a serious album together that would be dope, their styles would compliment and it would be a fresh, new angle.

    How the fuck are you "not guilty" if you're incarcerated??? I swear to god rappers need to stop talking this shit they sound high/uneducated/stupid. Okay say for example you're incarcerated for the sole purpose of being rehabilitated, that still makes you guilty of committing a crime Papoose. Last time I heard of this guy he was getting set up by Cassidy to get fucked up by Fat Joe big ass. lol, lame filler article

    Ah, that good ole ghetto logic. A person can break a law, assault or threaten someone, yet should skate because locking them up would just upset their family. We have laws for a reason. If Remy Ma can't follow them then this will happen again, and maybe next time she'll kill somebody and get life. Who will Papoose blame then, Obama? lol

      ^^ True. the law is the law, but the prosecutor isn't looking out for the defendant. Unless the defendant has adequate legal defense, it isn't really fair. I don't think everyone in prison innocent like he said, but everyone isn't treated equally under the law.

      Get off your high horse suckas, you know he didn't mean it like you are telling it. Unless both of you are expert criminal lawyers I guarantee you don't know the language of every law so stop patting yourselves on the backs like you are the epitome of a good citizen.

      Word. This is just sad, how crimes are glorified. Let all criminals out and we lock in the righteous people who worked hard all their life and get nothing out of it.

    ''Everybody thats incarcerated is not guilty.'' I think he rather meant ''not everybody that's incarcerated is guilty''

  • Say Goodnight

    Why does this frog-looking loser even bother? A Papoose co-sign achieves the opposite of what it should do and will kill your career, this nigga raped the word punchline and dropped some of the worst offerings ever.

    • FreeRemy

      She is trying to win her 3rd appeal this year but she isn't up for parole until 2 more years and then she has 5 years of supervision. That lawyer was SOOO awful and the Judge wasn't fair. Remy is INNOCENT
