TDE Wanted Papoose To Perform At "Summer Jam," Says Hot 97

While speculation was made about Papoose rushing the stage, Hot 97 is now reporting that Kendrick Lamar's camp wanted Pap to perform.

According to Hot 97, what many thought was a stage rush from Papoose at last night's "Summer Jam XX" was actually a favor from TDE for the man behind Nacirema Dream.

After Kendrick Lamar's set at "Summer Jam," many were surprised to see Papoose perform. The confusion of the moment had spectators wondering if it was an authorized performance or if he rushed the stage. Speculation and confusion even came from Ebro Darden, Hot 97's program director and on-air personality. Ebro challenged Papoose to come on his morning show to discuss it and vehemently denied knowing about Pap's performance. The two had an exchange via Twitter about it after the event.




However, this morning, Ebro's co-host Peter Rosenberg reported that the performance was in fact a favor from TDE for Papooose. Rosenberg said that an unnamed representative of the camp shared the news with him early. 

"When I saw them [TDE] at the venue, I go, 'So that's really happening?' And he's like, 'Listen, Pap's looked out for Kendrick for a long time.'" 

Cipha Sounds also added to the report, saying DJ Kay Slay's connection to Top Dawg may have influenced this decision.

"We know Kay Slay's relationship with Top Daw, that it's OG hood forever," he noted. 

Video of the report can be viewed below. 

Kendrick Lamar and Papoose have collaborated in the past. Their song "Lyrical Gangsta" was released late last year.

Much of the show can be streamed below. The clip includes Pap's performance, which comes on after Kendrick lamar ends his set. The stream displayed a Ciroc ad during some of Papoose's time on stage.

    Shout out to Papoose and fuck Cold 97! I don't even rock to Papooses music but I respect what he did. Any artists in any city should strong arm their way in if their own city's radio personalities aren't supporting. Cold 97 got NYC sounding like we're in the south. They show no support to their own. That's why they're hurting. Everybody has a smart device. They even have them in their cars. iTunes, Pandora and a bunch of apps allow you to listen to everything and anything you want. Not the shit Cold 97 wants to force feed you. This shit just made them look even more lame. They're just a bunch of corporate puppets trying to act like they set the trends in Hip Hop and make artists hot! FOH! They're not for their own city so fuck em'. Move Hot 97 down south and start some new shit. They're all old and washed up in there any way. They don't break any new records at all. They're DJ's are told by Ebro what they can and can not play... You got to be a real peanut brain if you still listen to that bullshit ass station. Slumber Jam ain't been hot since Jay-Z put prodigy on the screen and did takeover! Fact!

    They Should just Blow up Hot 97, how you not going to show love to one of your HOME GROWN artist?? WTF part of the game is that?? This is what's wrong with Hip Hop Now, it's Disgusting, these puppets they have on the Air-Waves think they run the industry. PAP should have a Red Carpet rolled out for him, HOT or NOT, he is a NYC Artist, these idiots Killing the ART FORM for making these whack artist feel like they HOT. EBRO need to get Aired OUT and Checked for that SHIT! This is a NYC EVENT, Don't SHIT on NYC Artist you HOMO.

    Damn Pap gets a lot of hate, lmao. Oh well, dude went out and got his, haha.

  • Enlite

    Yo WHYs everyone hate on Papoose so much? Honestly... what did he really do to get so much disrespect? Not live up to his full potential? Not go mainstream? Dude's kept it real from the start and has incredible skills - yet you wanna treat him like Rick Ross or some other fake cat that isn't worth the wax he's spitting on. Someone put me up.

    I think TDE and Kendrick should done Papoose justice and actually let him perform during their set instead of letting him come in afterwards. TDE made it look like Papoose just rushed the stage and that's what I thought when watching it last night.
