Paper Route Gangstaz ft. Big P.O.P.E - Another Night
Having apparently recovered from a serious bout of Keyshia Cole smoking, the somewhat deceptively named Paper Route Gangstaz are back on their grind, excuse me, route on their new mixtape leak Another Night. Notably, Another Night samples fake ‘90s metal song Power Ballad, which was in fact created by Shawn Coleman as a parody just a couple years ago. Fascinating sample source aside, Another Night finds producer Block Beattaz flipping the guitar-laced cut into a street banger with heavy percussion, setting a fitting backdrop for emcees Dawgy Baggz, Mata, Jhi-Ali, Gunt and, as if that wasn’t enough, guest artist Big P.O.P.E. to lay down rhymes about the blessings (five-star hotels) and curses (loneliness) of nights spent traveling in order to keep your fans happy with sold-out shows. No one said the life of a rap star was going to be easy. Expect to see PGZ’s name in lights on the marquee when their upcoming mixtape Hood Headlinaz Volume 2: Still Headlinin hits DJBooth’s stage…um…homepage on May 27.
