When the pandemic hit, upcoming Houston artist PAPS as known on Instagram as @DrunkPaps was faced with a big decision:

Would he proceed with the scheduled release of his new album, First Kiss In ‘96, on December 24th, or would he postpone the album to a date more befitting a major-label drop?

Despite pushback from executives with an eye toward the bottom line, the 24-year-old rapper, whose full name is Everett Williams, chose not to wait, coming out with his new music on August 1st, two weeks after its scheduled release. PAPS has made defiance a big part of his identity, whether it’s coating savage clapbacks in sinewy R&B, or battling the gossip blogs by setting the record straight in ...


On First Kiss in ‘96, Paps expressed he embraces the radical honesty his audience has come to expect, using his pristine vocals to lay waste to father figure relationships (much of the album is believed to be centered on his relationship with his father).
