New Jersey rapper Papo2oo4‘s banger “Intheway 98′” caught our attention immediately for it’s refreshing, retro-futuristic sound. Featuring an optimistic beat centred around swirling, spacey samples and bouncy percussion, the instrumental is evocative and raw. Over top, Papo2oo4 comes through with some smooth, candid verses that draw the listener into the track’s atmosphere. He sounds focused and sharp, delivering vivid lyrics spun in engaging rhyme patterns. Be sure to check out the remainder of his recent project AF1MG Live 2004, Vol. 3 if you enjoyed this track.
