Papoose Announces He Plans To Retire From Rap To Focus On Family

Rapper Papoose has officially announced that he will retire from the rap industry at the end of the year. To commemorate the event, Papoose will end his legendary career by launching a project every month for the remainder of 2021.
In an interview with HollywoodLife Podcast, 42-year-old Remy Ma, who is married to Bronx rapper, shared his reasons for the shocking decision.

“I’ve grown up in my life. I’m in a different place in my life right now. To be honest, I’ve given a lot of years of my life to music, and you know, so many people who wanted me to be a successful musician, they’re not even here anymore,” Papoose said, saying that he’s lost a lot of close family and friends.

“I’m in a different space in my life. I just want to focus more on my family,” he continued.

Remy has apparently also chimed into the conversation to call Pap’s bluff to say that while she knows that he wants to focus on his family, she does not believe he will leave the music game for good. The couple, who welcomed their first child together, Reminisce Mackenzie, on December 14, 2018, have jokingly placed a $1,000 bet that Papoose would never release music again following retirement.

“I’m over it. It’s watered down. When I came into this thing, it meant something. It was about talent and craft and spreading the good word. It’s not about that anymore,” Papoose further explained. “I can sit here and tell you, I’m really turned off from it. I mean, I just want to go on with my life and you know, focus on my family.”

Before leaving music for good, Pap has just dropped its first project of the year, January, featuring collaborations with Wiz Khalifa, Statik Selektah, Cool & Dre & Brady Watt. He confirmed that every new project will be named after the current month.
