One of Papoose's most memorable songs is "Alphabetical Slaughter." In it he rhymes using letters of the alphabet going from A to Z. On his upcoming album, The Nacirema Dream, the Brooklyn MC says he will be releasing a part two of the record, this time rhyming from Z to A.
"Alphabetical Slaughter is a record where I flow from A to Z. I break down all 26 letters of the alphabet, but I don't do it just to do it, or just to say I'm doing it," he told Kevin W. Reese of Hartford's 93.7. "I challenge any artist to do it. They try it but they never do it the right way. If you look at Alphabetical Slaughter on a piece of paper it should be in alphabetical order. So when you're using 'A' words, it should be nothing but 'A' words in there. You can't say 'the' or none of that. It has to make perfect sense what you're saying. We need to see this in writing and really see that you're making sense and it's really in alphabetical order. That was Alphabetical Slaughter part 1. On my album The Nacirema Dream, which is coming out very soon, I did it from Z to A, where I'm using all totally different words. If I use any word that I used in part 1, come check me."
Pap goes on to say that The Nacirema Dream will be coming out in the next couple of months. He's releasing it independently through his own label.
He also talks about what he considers to be the greatest rap battle of all time.
"I'ma keep it real with you. It was a lot of great battles, but I gotta say... I can't even say great battle. but to see someone get annihilated. I gotta say Jay-Z and Nas. That [Nas' Ether] was decapitation man," Pap said.
