Early this spring Wais P will release his new album, Pimpin Saved My Life, but before then, the rapper is releasing his latest mixtape, PV$$Y RICH, available for download exclusively on DatPiff.

As the set-up for his album, PV$$Y RICH is not only a display of Wais P’s talents, but also a platform for the rapper, who’s also an active pimp, to continue to spread his Pimp-Hop movement. “I’m making music more tailor made to who I am,” says Wais, explaining his direction with the new tape. “This is the set-up, and my album will delve even deeper into this life, and Pimp-Hop.”

PV$$Y RICH features an impressive list of guests, names like Action Bronson, Devin The Dude, GLC, Mistah FAB, 8Ball & MJG, and more. But for Wais, it wasn’t about chasing names, but rather collaborating with artists that he likes, that he felt would add to the project. “I wanted to work with artists that I thought were interesting,” says Wais, “I wanted to work with charismatic personalities. Mistah FAB – he has a big personality; everyone knows Action Bronson; GLC is one of the most prolific pimp spitters in the game other than myself.” And in addition to the big name features, Wais also uses PV$$Y RICH to introduce the artists on his label, Every Hood Records, artists like Took Da Locsta, who is featured on the tape’s intro and the track “Real Pimps.”

Beyond the features, though, Wais is the true star of the tape, delivering not only tracks that fall in line with his Pimp-Hop movement, but also songs like “G. Dep,” a track that pays homage to the former Bad Boy rapper, currently serving time for a murder charge. “I tried to emulate his flow, which is still innovative to this day,” says Wais of the track. “I wanted to be a voice for what he represents, and it’s one of my favorite tracks on the mixtape.”
