Papoose - Rotten Apple Lyrics

When I’m in Miami, when I’m in Atlanta
The radio sound like I’m in Miami
When I’m in New York the radio sound like I’m in Miami
So you feel like now my response to that is
Miami currently, Atlanta currently
Is making better music, musically than New York
Let me explain something to you
Them dudes is in power
Because y’all putting them in power

I’ve been fighting in spikes
Came off tour my mic was on
Me and Ebro been having this dialogue
Even though they play a major part in each way
We can’t blame it all on the DJs
Cause when New York slows down
I play the side like a G
Waited my turn but learned it down to the T
Other New York artists change they bop to a bounce
Started snappin they fingers
Like they was from the south
Out of towners come in town
They just tag along
Apart of the entourage playing chaperone
A bunch of escorts
Got yo mains with you
Niggers do anything for an Instagram picture
But it’s bigger than them and us
I warned y’all on charade
The hip hop tops was tryna finish us
Play some boom back take the melodies off
It’s the concrete jungle we can never be soft

We should not be playing 2Chainz
We should not be playing Ross all the time
We should not be playing Drake
We should not be playing Drake
We should not be playing Lil Wayne
I ain’t sayin that
I’m sayin we shouldn’t be following Su
We should be dictatin something
We should be dictatin for them to play some shit
Cause they dictatin what we play
Out here I sit back and I hear the radio
They like oh this is hot in Atlanta
New joint, hot I never heard it before
This is crazy in Atlanta boom
I do hate that phrase
And I’m like yo this ain’t Atlanta
This ain’t Atlanta

Yeah four gold albums
One platinum black, still shining
I get my record hot they try to tell me keep grinding
Live in Miami, how I’m supposed to get some spins there?
The first thing they say
Is New York spinning it there?
We don’t support our own
Records ain’t hot enough
Towards the artists with the budgets
Guess they got the hottest stuff
We pull the support independent artists
We proud of our city and stop playing this garbage
When we first came out this heavy wasn’t relevant
Puff was killin the agenda
Walk towards gold was evident
I ain’t trying to live off my past accolades
But nowadays music get looked over
Every new nigger hear their new song with me already
But my love in the city dead, obituary
Fuck it it’s the support good music
I ain’t talkin Kanye-ing them
I¬ím talkin Kay Slay-ing ¬Ďem
Bust Rhymes, Nore and Ghost
Cam’Rayin em

When we down there
Them niggers don’t give a fuck about New York
If you ain’t knowin one of they joints
They ain’t supportin it
You ain’t getting no New York nigger out here
For dolo and his shit poppin
Look, if there’s good music being made
It’s gonna get a look, right?
That’s how your music gets on
That’s how ASAP is poppin right now
You know, but at the same time
If there’s shitty music being made
Or it’s sounding basic or regional and it’s not poppin
Streets not poppin

Look at the last few years it’s count
Most up north artists who made it
Had to sign to an artist from the south
That makes me scratch my head
Why the legends from up north
Left all the up and coming for dead?
Why is it that Eminem had to sign 50?
When everybody knew
He had the town in his frenzy
Ross had to come up north for Meek Millie
Wayne signed Cory Jae Millz and Iggy
When Jay-Z came up he piggy backed Biggie
Why he ain’t never pushed no artist from his city?
Ain’t hatin every man gotta put in they own work
I’m just pointin out the facts
Been doing my homework
They don’t judge an artist by his excellence
Everybody only know one word relevant
Expand your vocabulary
When the real artist shit drop
Cause the word relevant is really killin hip-hop
This goes out to every city big or small
Support up north like we support y’all
