ATTN HIP-HOP PRODUCERS: I’m continuing my studio tour today. The project details are currently secret, but I am reaching out to my friends in the GR Hip-Hop community and putting together my instrumentals for a future Due Diligence release.
Yesterday I stuck my flag in three beats from the incomparable Venson Dix of the popular and insanely-good-music-making PUNKSUHATE. Tonight I take counsel with a master in his own right, producer Brandon Copeland. A person who has taken the moniker Dante Cope and literally massacred instrumentals and rhymes.
As I continue my studio tour with Alexander Lukens and Biff Tannen, sacrificing a goat to get time with Nixon, Chip and Brandon Pastor will be next. (Fingers crossed.)
BUT I DON’T WANT TO MISS ANYONE! Who do I need to see after these monoliths of beats and rhymes?
