DON’T SLEEP: Tope “Tope Beats” & “Soul Music” [BEAT TAPE & PRODUCER ALBUM]

Kenny Fresh told me I had to listen to this Portland producer/emcee Tope’s stuff and I’ve known Kenny since the old Okayplayer days so I KNOW he knows his shit. I blocked out some time while readying the new D-Man project for Bloggerhouse x Producers I Know to listen to his back catalog which include a producer album called “Soul Music” (pictured above), a beat tape called “Tope Beats” and an album by his group Living Proof called “Full Speed”. I feel like an ass for having slept for so long but this is why we do what we do, to share information with each other & the rest of the world. Look out for “FREELEMONADE” dropping next week on Fresh Selects. Don’t sleep!
