DJ Kay Slay, Busta's Flipmode Ink Joint Venture Deal To Push Papoose
The union has produced the upcoming Swizz Beatz produced single "Get Right" featuring Busta Rhymes.
"Busta Rhymes had been watching what I was doing with Papoose in terms of getting him to the level I have taken him to," Kay Slay told AllHipHop.com. "We already had situations on the table, but we knew if we formed some kind of alliance, we could help get Papoose into a bigger deal and we are talking seven-figure ones."
While Papoose remains an artist signed to Street Sweepers Entertainment, Kay Slay said the new joint venture with Flip Mode would help elevate Papoose's career because of Busta Rhymes' pop appeal.
Papoose recently completed several high profile collaborations with the likes of Busta Rhymes and Nas, several performances like Hot 97's Full Frontal fashion show, Power 105.1's "Birthday Bash" at the Nassau Coliseum in New York and a well-received performance during BET's recent Spring Bling party in Miami Beach,Florida.
"When the world sees the response that he [Papoose] got when he came out with Busta on Spring break on BET, there's probably going to be alot of A&R's that lose their jobs," Kay Slay joked.
According to Kay Slay, Papoose has deliberately avoided signing a deal, despite releasing numerous mixtapes and enjoying steady airplay on New York radio.
"We need priority status, because the kid is the future of Hip-Hop. And that's not coming from me, I heard it from come from a lot of people," Kay Slay continued. "He kills the block every now and then. He is only talking about what he sees in his ventures through life. He talks about the knowledge, wisdom and understanding, I mean dude spits lyrics that I would be actually let my own daughter listening to on some occasions. And its certain records people gonna hear come from him that they [are] gonna love."
"Get Right" featuring Busta Rhymes is slated to hit radio airwaves next week.
