The Video:
With a relentless hustler mentality and sky-high ambitions, SNUPE BANDZ is a staple in the Memphis scene. Staying focused on increasing his money and fame, the Paper Route Empire rapper shares “Blocstar.” Over bouncy yet assertive production, SNUPE comments on his recent success and status in his city. He refuses to let anyone get in his way as he rises to the top, unfazed by those beneath him: “Don’t compare me to none of these rappers, b*tch I’m a trapper.” In the video, SNUPE gives a glimpse into the life of a true trap star, flexing his icy chains while a group of baddies dance around him.

“Blocstar” arrives shortly after “Scarred,” Snupe’s first new music since the release of BOYZ IN THE HOOD, the 2022 collaborative project between SNUPE and fellow PRE hotshot PaperRoute Woo. With high-energy features from Arkansas rapper Bankroll Freddie and the crunkstar himself, Duke Deuce, BOYZ N THE HOOD built on the duo’s long history of collaborations, dating back to 2020’s “In My Bag” and continuing through 2021’s “Pop Out,” which drew 2 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 10 million views, and they later took the stage in remembrance of their role model during a tribute set at Rolling Loud California 2021. Since then, SNUPE BANDZ has been a mainstay in the Memphis scene, following in the footsteps of his mentor Young Dolph with his uncompromising Tennessee trap music.
