Hey black ppl of America

If you're gonna take up Rapping as a career in 2012 then you might as well employ Goodie Mob's debut album and Suga Free's I Wanna Go Home (The County Jail Song) as your two primary artistic inspirations and parlay them into a pretty interesting Youtube gimmick :

"hell no, I don't want my head bust, no I don't wanna die
I 'ono what's up there in that great big ol' sky"

Alpoko Don - All I Know
(From Youtube; 2012)

"This my year this year, money gon' keep pilin'
I'm playin' with more faces than a thousand photo albums

Alpoko Don - Get My Paypa, Dog
(From Youtube; 2012)

Has this guy really just been locked up for eight years or is that narrative merely part of the gimmick?

Oh shit he has proper videos! Nice one, I'd forgetten about him. Id add Scarface to hat list of influences.

Da Don Dada >>>>> anything Rahzels done thats not If Your Momma Only Knew.

Definite My Block video influence on the All I Know clip, but as a Rapper he's way more countrified than Scarface, imo.

Man, what a con artist.

Is the "Get My Paypa Dog" beat 100% original?

Shit makes me wanna nod my head and wipe up my forehead with a white rag on a black pastor tip.

I assume so.
