I was originally hipped to Tampa FL’s JOHN DOPE through one of my favorite labels, the ever-consistent DIRTY TAPES, earlier this year. After the release of his lo-fi Halloween ’13-released project, he’s been at work building up his catalogue. JOHN ventured out and found like-minded individuals to collaborate with — the latest being the Australian-based Tafe G. The pair supply dusty raps over production from Wild Thought, ~Oliver , Studio Kinda Cloudy, Blank Ant & Buyable. The tape serves as the latest from Burnt Tapes which is based out of Alaska (cold place, cold raps — makes perfect sense to me).
You can stream JOHN & Tafe’s joint tape, and purchase it on cassette via Burnt Tapes’ bandcamp below.
