Heroes & Super Villains (Week 47) – The Word Of The Week Is: “Papoose”

We never thought Papoose would get a mention let alone be the biggest headline this past week. But thanks to perhaps the most bizarre sequence at Hot 97’s Summer Jam, wherein he crashed the stage to perform one song following Kendrick Lamar‘s devastating set, he’s all we’ve been talking about.

 

The explanation behind Pap’s appearance at hip-hop’s biggest annual event might be more surprising than the actual event itself. According to Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg, the brief slot was handed to the Brooklyn MC by Kendrick and TDE as a gesture of good will for his early support (Papoose was up on K. Dot back in the day — who woulda thought?)

 

Speaking of TDE, during a sit-down with Miss Info backstage at Summer Jam, Kendrick Lamar revealed that the label have signed two new acts (heavily rumored to be Brooklyn songstress SZA and Tennessee rapper Isaiah Rashad). Action Bronson trolled the internet (and various sites that actually reported the fake news) by tweeting that he, in fact, was TDE’s newest recruit. Lol.

 

And to cap off the week in style, J. Cole took Kanye West‘s formula and improved it. On Friday night, in various North American cities, Jermaine held a listening session for his new album, Born Sinner, at which fans had to download an app on their iPhone to tune in. It’s definitely interesting to compare the marketing tactics employed by Cole, Kanye and Mac Miller in the run-up to their June 18 album show-down.

Greg Grease – “Forward”

 

 

If you’ve managed to get this far during the week, you probably deserve a break. And what good timing to introduce Greg Grease‘s latest video for “Forward”, a stripped down, less-is-more banger that doesn’t need to be overdramatic to get it’s point across. Directed by Adam Dunn as a part of his #LABB (Lights and a Backdrop) series, the visuals are as minimalistic as it gets, allowing the Grease, his DJ and his turntable to play centre stage. Check it out and be sure to pick up Greg Grease’s Black King Cole EP if you don’t already own it.
