DJ Kay Slay, Busta’s Flipmode Ink Joint Venture Deal To Push Papoose

DJ Kay Slay’s Street

Sweepers Entertainment has inked a joint venture deal with Busta Rhyme’s

Flip Mode Squad and the two entities will combine resources to push the career

of Brooklyn, New York rapper Papoose.

The union has produced

the upcoming Swizz Beatz produced single "Get Right" featuring Busta

Rhymes.

"Busta Rhymes

had been watching what I was doing with Papoose in terms of getting him to the

level I have taken him to," Kay Slay told AllHipHop.com. "We already

had situations on the table, but we knew if we formed some kind of alliance,

we could help get Papoose into a bigger deal and we are talking seven-figure

ones."

While Papoose remains

an artist signed to Street Sweepers Entertainment, and also managed by Chris Lighty and Violator managemnent, Kay Slay said the new joint

venture with Flip Mode would help elevate Papoose’s career because of Busta

Rhymes’ pop appeal.

Papoose recently

completed several high profile collaborations with the likes of Busta Rhymes

and Nas, several performances like Hot 97’s Full Frontal fashion show, Power

105.1’s "Birthday Bash" at the Nassau Coliseum in New York and a well-received

performance during BET’s recent Spring Bling party in Miami Beach,Florida.

"When the

world sees the response that he [Papoose] got when he came out with Busta on

Spring break on BET, there’s probably going to be alot of A&R’s that lose

their jobs," Kay Slay joked.

According to Kay

Slay, Papoose has deliberately avoided signing a deal, despite releasing numerous

mixtapes and enjoying steady airplay on New York radio.

"We need priority status, because the kid is the future of Hip-Hop. And

that’s not coming from me, I heard it from come from a lot of people,"

Kay Slay continued. "He kills the block every now and then. He is only

talking about what he sees in his ventures through life. He talks about the

knowledge, wisdom and understanding, I mean dude spits lyrics that I would be

actually let my own daughter listening to on some occasions. And its certain

records people gonna hear come from him that they [are] gonna love."

"Get Right"

featuring Busta Rhymes is slated to hit radio airwaves next week.
