Papoose’s Career In Rap + Reality TV

Pap has released four studio albums and a couple dozen mixtapes. He and Remy Ma have starred on a few seasons of “Love & Hip-Hop,” and their 2016 wedding was featured on the hit reality TV show.

“I’ve made the decision that 2021 will be my last year rapping, so I am announcing my retirement. It was a decision that I’ve wrestled with internally, but I’ve decided to move on with my life, and focus on my family and investments.”

Love & Hip-Hop’s Future Up In The Air?

Production for “Love & Hip-Hop” was halted midseason when the pandemic hit in 2020. VH1 later decided to cut ties with Big Fish Entertainment, the production company responsible for the four L&HH shows (New York, Atlanta, Hollywood, Miami).
