Papoose came through for his first VladTV interview in some years, and he started off by speaking about his new Timbaland-produced single “Thought I Was Gonna Stop” ft. Lil Wayne.

From there, Papoose began to tell his story, including growing up in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, and he also spoke about starting his rap career in the ‘90s. After speaking about linking up with Kool G Rap and appearing on his 1998 “Roots of Evil” album, Papoose spoke about dropping “Alphabetical Slaughter” and going to jail around the same time. Elsewhere in the interview, Papoose detailed signing his first major label deal, which he said was one of the worst mistakes he made. Papoose also spoke about meeting Remy Ma and being crushed when she went to prison, but Papoose detailed sticking by her side until she came home.
