Papoose was one of the first rappers to address the death of Sean Bell, a father of two who was unarmed when police killed him in a hail storm of 50 gunshots. On "Change Gon' Come (50 Shots)," Pap rapped:
No justice, no peace
Another Black man shot dead in the streets...
Your reason was you thought he had a gun
That means you shot him for nothing
'Cause he ain't have one
