With their complementary styles and natural chemistry behind the mic, SNUPE BANDZ and PaperRoute Woo know that sometimes it takes two to make a thing go right. Putting their tag-team synergy on full display, the Paper Route Empire artists share “Team Player,” the latest video from their October album BOYZ N THE HOOD. Over creeping piano production with a distinct Memphis bounce, produced by trap mainstay Izze The Producer, SNUPE and Woo trade bars on the track like it’s second nature, while tearing it up like Army Rangers, on and off-road, with their Humvee in the video.
SNUPE and Woo’s Southern synergy is felt throughout the 15 tracks on BOYZ N THE HOOD, released in October. Each artist’s individual strengths shine through brilliantly – on “When I’m Bored,” Woo’s flex-heavy ferocity emerges in rare form, while SNUPE dazzles with his head-turning hooks and clever rhymes on standouts like “Dam Fool.” With high-energy features from Arkansas’ own Bankroll Freddie and the crunkstar himself, Duke Deuce, BOYZ N THE HOOD continues a new era of dominance for Paper Route Empire.
SNUPE BANDZ and PaperRoute Woo have a long history of collaborations, dating back to 2020’s “In My Bag” and continuing through 2021’s “Pop Out,” which drew 1.9 million YouTube views. Both SNUPE and Woo joined their mentor Young Dolph on “Nothing To Me,” a standout single from the 2021 PAPER ROUTE iLLUMINATi mixtape, generating over 9.5 million views, and they later took the stage in remembrance of their role model during a tribute set at Rolling Loud California 2021. The two Memphis natives made memorable appearances on Paper Route Empire Presents: Long Live Dolph, the 2022 PRE compilation tape: SNUPE shined on his solo showcase “I Know Why,” and connected with Joddy Badass for the sensual “I Like,” while Woo flashed his mastery of flow in “Fully Equipt.”
Stay tuned for more from Woo and SNUPE as the year moves along.
