Papoose – “Hold The City Down” (prod. DJ Premier)

blame it on Meka October 4, 2015

With the 17th installment in the NBA 2K series out now, a portion of the soundtrack was curated by DJ Premier (as well as DJ Mustard and DJ Khaled). Alongside classics such as Jeru The Damaja’s “You Can’t Stop The Prophet” and Living Colour’s “Cult of Personality,” Primo provided a pair of exclusive songs for his section of the soundtrack: an instrumental, “Bum Bum Bum,” and the Papoose-featured “Hold The City Down.”

The Pap-Premier connection is on full display on their collaboration. Following the recent team-up, “The Plug,” Papoose provides a theme song for the game’s MyCareer mode (called “Livin’ Da Dream”) as a ball player rising through the ranks to NBA stardom. Hear it below.
