To almost all hip-hop fans when asked “who the King of New York is”, very few, if any, would put Papoose a top of that list (and that’s no shade, just facts.) In an interview with the New York Daily News, the MC crowned himself and announced that “nobody” is better than he – not even Hova.
“None are more lyrically inclined than me. None of them,” he said. “I’m definitely the king of New York. I am the greatest out of New York.”
Papoose has no beef with the Roc Nation boss, he just thinks he’s better than Jay when it comes to the rap game. “When I look in the mirror I don’t see Jay Z — I see Papoose,” he explained. “More power to him, but he’s not better than me.” Recent album sales may say other wise, but respect that confidence!
