After nearly a decade of delays, Papoose announces a formal release date for his debut project The Nacirema Dream. This announcement came in form of a manifesto written by the Brooklyn rapper that attests to his years of ups and downs in both the music industry and his personal life. He explains that The Nacirema Dream is more than an album. Let him tell it, it’s a part of American culture.
“I [sic] been working on this album my entire life, those of you who followed me over the years know and have the material to prove it,” began Papoose, who followed with a full explanation of what this album means to him and how it will affect Hip-Hop.
No stranger to slander and naysayers, the “Alphabetical Slaughter” MC remains steadfast in his belief that this album will “change Hip-Hop and place New York back on top.”
While its status as a game changer remains to be seen, one thing is certain, and it’s that The Nacirema Dream will finally see it’s proper release independently on March 26, with pre-orders available now. See the artwork for the album below, and the manifesto in full on the following page.
