“Straight up…this is that raw ish. Slaps. Face Twisters. Hard beats. All these joints were made in a span of 08’-11’. It all started when I first got into the Red Bull Beat Battle in Detroit end of 08’. I was never known as a beat battle type producer and believe it or not, I actually don’t like battling with beats. However, that was my first time ever battling with beats. Knowing I was battling, I definitely found myself in a different frame of mind when I sat down to make joints in the lab. While in the lab, my motivation was making beats that I would have HATED if my opponent played them against me. I took a collection of beats where I had that mind state and mixed them with other beats I made during that time period. I’m setting this Killer Tape off with the first joint I ever made in a beat battle mind state and the rest is history. I got a new nickname under my belt now, 14KillaTape…haha”
I had never heard of 14KT until about umm, 20 minutes ago, how did this guy slip past me until now I am not sure. Thanks to the interwebs I am now slightly up to speed. Learning 14KT first made beats with his parents soul/jazz records on a dual tape deck, went on tour with Mayor Hawthorne and won Red Bull’s Big Tune beat battle in 2010. 14 Killa Tape definitely lives up to its name serving a hot taste of 14 reasons why you don’t want to battle with Mr. #14! I just blasted this four times in a row, 14 Killa Tape is going to be a must for summer rides while tearing up these streets! Oooooh weeee, “LIkeUDo” got me ready to smash OUT!
Props to Hoya for the plug!
