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.

For the latest leak off his crew’s new compilation project, BSB Vol. 2 — an ode to “Bad Bitches” — Troy Ave calls on Smoke DZA, Young Lito and Austin Millz, who supplies some tingly, devastating production. This has street smash potential.

Although the 183rd produced “Royal (Burn)” from R.F.C. (Den10 & Smoke DZA) has already blessed our rap pages this past Wednesday, the song has resurrected back onto our homepage as the Jerry Rivera “Amores Como El Nuestro” sample has become the subject of our fifth collaborative Friday Flips column with our Refined Hype brethren, Nathan S. The edutainment continues as we explore how this samples been used for better and for worse through the years, as the intro on both Lord Tariq & Peter Gunz classic “Deja Vu (Uptown Baby)” back in ’97 and Shakira‘s 2004 smash single “Hip’s Don’t Lie,” all the way to 183rd’s trap fused burner that hit the net this week. So hit the jump and come get your learn on.. worst case scenario is that you get to see Shakira shake it like a salt shaker…
