First Papoose announced he was a better rapper than Jay Z in a New York Daily News article last week, and now the Brooklyn MC is laying that claim on wax. Featuring slick boom bap production from DJ Premier, Papoose's new record "Current Events" is an overview of New York's status in 2014 as he describes the lack of competition that is taking place in his hometown, Hov included. "I said I'm better than Jigga 'cause I'm better than Jigga/I ain't a rookie to this shit, I'm a veteran spitta," he raps. "Current Events" may not sway public opinion toward Papoose as being the king of New York, but it certainly proves he's hungry for the title.
