Papoose has spent some time away from the music scene, but he returned with a new mixtape entitled Back 2 The Streets this weekend. The mixtape sits at a brief ten tracks, but delivers nostalgic New York lyricism throughout. "Da Flow" is the pinnacle of East Coast energy, a single that features both The LOX veteran Sheek Louch and Nas protege Dave East.
"Da Flow" features an anthemic instrumental that thumps like it should be relayed over stadium speakers. Pap steps onto the track first, but the following verses from Sheek and East threaten to steal the show. The chorus rides out without any lyrics, just a quick DJ Kay Slay assisted scratch session.
You don't gotta give me props
Boy, I knew your mom when she was cheating on your pops
In drops when Ruff Ryder's was wheelin' them blocks
I don't talk to the cops, it's the motherfuckin' LOX
