Very rarely in hip hop can a rappers debut album be the most anticipated album through its reputation, exclusivity and fan following. Ice Cube, Saigon and Lloyd Banks all share a similar story regarding their debut albums, they had kept their fans hungry through “freak verses” on other projects. Busta Rhythms famously stated in an interview with This is 50 about how prior to releasing an album he was satisfied with dropping bars on other projects for a fee and had no plans to drop a solo album  inadvertently this caused fans to fiend for his music.

When talking about anticipated albums the most common that comes to mind is Dr Dres Detox which has been over 12 years in the making. Some projects (e.g. Dr Dre and Ice Cubes duet album which was never released) relied on the reputation of previous albums to create a buzz, but today fans world wide will be at the end of a long wait. Papooses album Nacirema Dream will be released in a matter of 2 hours.

Today the album is already trending online, Papoose has kept his fans hungry through releasing 28 mixtapes since 2004. Every quarter Papooses mixtapes have dominated the mixtape underground with fans eager to get the next fix, these tapes established Papoose as a solid top 10 MC with consistent flows and a “new school” touch of punchlines. After a set of mixtapes in 2004, by 2005 his debut album  was being hyped by Djs, online editorials and through fans sharing information. By 2006 and after another round of mixtapes it was official that the album was being shelved.

 

PASHS like other fans is waiting for the album to write an official review but was able to find a quick note from Papoose himself in regards to his last few years in the game and a thank you to the fans.

PASHS is wishing Papoose all the best of luck with the album and we genuinely cant wait for it to drop in 2 hours time. With love from the UK.

Honorable mentions to DJ KAYSLAY for providing us with the mixtapes and keeping the StreetSweepers vibe alive.

The theory below will give you chills!

The truth of the Rugrats
theory?
This is the whole story:
The Rugrats really were a
figment of Angelica’s
Imagination.
Chucky died a long time ago
along with this mother, that’s
why Chaz is a nervous wreck all
the time.
Tommy was a stillborn, that’s
why Stu is constantly in the
basement making toys for the
son who never had a chance to
live.
The DeVilles had an abortion,
Angelica couldn’t figure whether
it would be a boy or a girl thus
creating the twins
—————————–
As for “All Grown Up” Angelica
was a bipolar schizophrenic
who, as a teenager became
addicted to various Narcotics,
bringing her back to her
childhood and thus her
creations she obsessed over,
because of time lapse between
the present and the last time
she interacted with her
creations, she made them older,
Angelica was constantally taking
hits of acid, so she would never
have to live without her
creations who were her only
company, in a judgemental
world
Angelica’s mom actually died of
a heroine overdose, Angelica
was schizophrenic/bipolar
because she was a crack baby,
additionaly Drew in his
depression married a gold
digging whore, that Angelica
idolized because she fooled
herself into thinking it was her
real mom, but always had a
concept of her mom, Cynthia,
and took a barbie doll, and
made it after her mom’s image,
wearing an unwashed oranged
dress, and having jacked up
hair, which is why she was so
attached to it, later in life she
followed in her mom footsteps
w/ drugs and everything, dieing
of overdose at age 13 when All
Grown Up! was “canceled”
The only rugrat not to be
fictional however, was unborn
Tommy’s brother Dil, however
Angelica didnt know the
differace between Dil and her
creations, Dil didnt follow her
commands, after endless crying
and a refusal to disapear like
the others did when angelica
was angry with them, she hit
him. And she hit him, screaming
a screaching tune, Stu ran in
and pulled his neice off of his
only child, but it was too late,
he had a brain hemerage, which
resulted in a deformation, as he
grew up his damage only
became more evident, by the
time he was 9 in All Grown Up!
He lived as an outcast, being
ridiculed for his weirdness, and
retardation, the immense guilt
over this is what led to her drug
use and is what led Angelica to
un-create the rugrats breifly,
until her expericance w/
hallucinogenics.
On a trip to Paris to find love,
Chaz married a hooker named
Kira (He was actually going to
marry a differant hooker, but
she just wanted him for his
money), who had a daughter
named Kimi that was torn from
her because she was a cocaine
addict (Angelica imagined her
from Kira’s stories), he lost his
mind after the death of his wife
and was in denial that she was
ever prostitue, upon return to
America, Chaz and Kira married
and she got her greencard, it
was actually a really happy/
romantic story, Kira continually
stuggled with addiction, but was
relatively happy w/ her life, and
Chaz
Suzie was actually Angelica’s
only friend, who entertained the
thought of Angelica’s creations,
for her, She later became a
phycologist and teamed up w/
Nickelodeon to make the
Rugrats! When Angelica died of
drug overdose, she helped
arrange her funeral, Angelica’s
death was sad, because of her
addiction, she was expelled
from society, which lead to a
break with reality, and her
eventual death, she spent the
last days of her life in the back
of the school cafeteria,
imagining friends around her,
and playing with the lives of her
creations.
Yes, the cartoon has the babies
as real people because of adult
interaction with them. But, do
you think that nickelodeon
could’ve gotten the idea of
Rugrats from this tragic
storyline? I bet somewhere out
there something like this has
occurred.
Do you think that something like
this took place?

A lack of promotion has been cited as the downfall of many hip hop albums. DMX’s albums which were on DefJam (N then there was X) performed much better in the charts, boasting high quality production, big budget music videos and all-star features. Then came the trials and tribulations of DMX, the last album ”Undisputed” failed to really impact anyone outside of DMX fans, the industry just moved on.  DMX blamed the lack of funding he received from Seven Arts Music.

Method man also went at Defjam stating the budget just wasn’t
for him to be paying producers just of their name on a track. On the Wu Massacre album Meth stated Def Jam put a rush on it,” Meth said. “We didn’t have a lot of time to work on it. We recorded with no budget. It is what it is. We did this for the fans. It felt good to get in the studio with Rae and Ghost.”

Artists with followings such as Eminem and jay Z can really on fans to buy the records without and promotion. Dj who kid famously stated how The Eminem Show was already several times platinum before anyone at Interscope had even thought up a promotion budget.
 Illmatic although lacked promotion was positively met by critics and over tine became an icon of hip hop music. The question that should be asked is what level of promotion can justify the potential of an artist. Olivia apparently cost 50Cent $1 Million through promotion costs however her album was a commercial flop. It could be argued that the wrong methods of promotion were used as key demographics were not targeted properly.
50 cent also kicked off at interscope recently as the delay of his album “street king immortal” has been delayed since 2009. 50 have argued with Interscope to promote the album properly which has led to several delays and arguments regarding what make an artist, the promotion or the skills.

Yoube  jeezy said the key to getting a hit record was to flood the market with your cds. This all however comes at a cost and even though Jeezy isn’t regarded as a top ten rapper his album sales would tell a different story.

A great example of how marketing can create the perfect channel for an artist is by looking a benzino. What do owning a magazine and being a rapper have in common? Well let’s look at benzinos visibility in the game before he got involved with the source. It’s safe to say that outside of Boston there was little hype. But once that link was made benzino was able to put himself on the cover of his own top selling magazine and through the links he made create his own compilation mix tapes with him featuring. The desired outcome of this is your work gets considered as good as those who are also on the complication album. The reality is the hip hop community realised the sneaky tricks behind this which led to the next time you heard about benzino was during beef.
Maybe the most visible argument of how even without a marketing budget you can become the most versatile of rappers is Immortal Technique. The majority of IT fans are based outside of the USA. During the early 2000s Immortal Technique mix tapes were promoted by fans all over the internet. By posting these tracks online rap fiends were able to finally discover fresh and raw talent talking about relevant issues opposed to the shootouts and gang themes associated with other acts.
So it could be argued that as long as you can stay current in the game and with the help of the internet careers can be made.

If you look at artist who are defined by their work names like Gangstar and Krsone come to mind. It’s crazy to think that at the peaks of New York hip-hop it was a mixture of perfected beats and a strong set of lyrical skills that defined an artist. If your songs were good djs would play it and if not expect not to get any air time. Now the game has changed to if you have a wack song but a good marketing mix your song can blow.

Immortal Technique. ”And if you go platinum it has nothing to do with luck, it just means a million people are stupid as fuck!

Nepotism has been a common theme in almost every sector, Presidents, Media giants and even athletes have all used their contact base to launch the careers of their offspring and family. Others have been influence by family members to enter the industry.

I think its fair when analysing hip hop not to stay focused on one area (gangsta rap) so o get a balance have a look at the kids of Will and Jada Smith. Willows first song “whip my hair” was a huge commercial hit but the follow up singles which featured Nikki Minaj etc. went met with the same positive reviews and her album has been delayed for this year. Jayden on the other hand has got involved with the movie star aspect of being a star. He did release a self-published mix tape last year but I think it’s safe to say he will be concentrating
on developing as an actor before he continues with music.

The name Diggy Simonds among rap fans is becoming a household name. The son of Rev Run from RunDMC, Diggys flow was shown to the rest of the world during a BET Cypher with fellow rapper Ice Cube and his kids. For anyone outside of the USA (like myself) this was the first instance where I took notice of this young rapper. After working with top producers such as DJ Premier in 2012 Diggy released his long awaited debut which boasted production from the likes of Jay Z and features from Jadakis. Diggy has been acclaimed by other rappers such as Kanye West who was quoted as saying “I knew this guy would do it”. As well as the album Diggy has released a clothing line, had his own TV show and even stared in his own film. His debuted was met with positive reviews and it’s pretty clear that thus kid is on fire right now.

In 2000 an artist from the westcoast emerged known as Hood Surgeon with a few songs but nothing really proffcient enough to create a buzz. A few years on and he changed his name to Curtis Young the biological son of Dr Dre. It seems that as with the name change Young’s music has also matured and so far he has appeared on a few mix tapes which has created a huge buzz for an album to drop. He has stated several times that he would like to revive the west coast like his father and Bing in new sounds, he has also stated his first love was writing poems at age 11. Let’s hope he dosnt take a long as Dre to drop an album or we can add Curtis Young to the list of MCs we wanted but never delivered.

Ice cubes first gave a glimpse of his two sons entering into the rap game during a BET cypher which also had the sons of rapper Runs two children. The cypher received positive reviews and shortly after Cube enlisted his two sons “OMG” and “Dohboy” on two tracks of his album “I Am The West”. A trap that the new artists can fall into is trying to replicate the same sound as their fathers. Cube has stated publicly that his two sons were brought up in a different world from the LA riots and gangbanging Cube saw when he was starting out. This outlook is shown through there lyrics which are by no means as hard-core as their dads work but still provides users with that new west coast style that has started trending. OMG released his first mix tape “Jacking for Beats” where he aps over popular current beats. The tape was met with favourable reviews and both rappers will soon feature in the NWA movie if it is very made alongside Dr Dre and Eazys E sons.

In 2009 Eminems brother had produced a demo of his music as a taster of things to come. A few years later it was reported that he had attained two DUIs in two stays which would delay his albums release as it would conflict with touring. He took the name Nate Kane and has tried to differentiate his music from his brothers by stating “I want to focus on songs that get played in clubs” compared to Eminem’s more hard-core tone. From hearing his most popular single “slide on over” it’s clear he’s not trying to get by under the Shady name, but similar rhythm patterns and style can be seen as similar to his brothers. Nate has credited his writing influence from Eminem as he was able to witness first-hand how Eminem wrote and created his own style. Publically Eminem hasn’t really supported Nate Music but this could be the result of Eminem focusing more on developing other artists (currently slaughterhouse/yellawolf) than promoting his brother. Never the less Nate Kane has had a small buzz in areas such as Detroit and getting some of his tracks played in local clubs.

When Eazy E died from Aids his son (soon to be known as Lil Eazy E) was only ten. The death of one of the biggest rappers in hiphop was the start of a slow decline of the west coast leading the rap game. As he got older he became an ambassador for promoting HIV awareness. After his dads death Ruthless records also started to decline as a company. With Tomica Wright (eazys wife) taking over acts like Bone thugs who were cash cows for ruthless began expanding their music outside of the label. Lil eazy e has released around four mixtapes and was set to launch a debut album a few years back entitled “Prince of Compton” after creating the initial buzz the album went into limbo and never got released. Lil Eazy had publicly beefed rapper Game claiming he was using his father’s name to much in his music which was why his music was selling. Game responded with a few lines on “120 Bars” but stated after he didn’t feel right beefing Lil Eazy as he had too much respect for his father. It’s clear that Lil Eazy has got support from rappers such as Daz, bone thugs and BG Knockout who was all affiliated with his dad, but as far as a debut album is concerned the finished product seems far away. It has been stated that he will zoom play the part of his father in the NWA movie however with this also being delayed it seems for the time being he is concentrating on promoting other artist as well as making more music which gets respected air time from Compton Djs.

Rapper and Ex magazine owner Benzino also brought his son into the game known as “Cool Breeze Ray”. The artist is still quite young and aside from a few tracks that have been released over the last few years the lack of music being made can be credited with the decline of the hype. Eminem famously dissed Benzino regarding him bringing his son into the game “you even brought your in son to try to eat of him because you missed your boat”. Benzino has stated he doesn’t want his kids to go into the rap industry as a primary source of income. An analysis of Cool Breeze style and flow are generally pretty good, from the last few songs thstv have been heard its clear he has created his own rhythm and style but in terms of a debut it seems it’s a long time coming.

Honourable mentions: Justice the son of rapper GZA who has had some input onto some Wu projects but watch this space as his voice has been cruised for not sounding mature enough over the beats, but time will tell.

Big L How come you can listen to my first album And tell where a lot of niggas got they whole style from?
