D.O.P.E-Skills by RageProductions published on 2013/01/22 20:41:41 +0000 D.O.P.E (Deadly Organized Poetry Experts: DMF, Ram, and DJ Dread) was a crew from North Chicago and are one of the last artists that I worked with before shutting down Rage Cage Studios and Artist Development. Once we went into a studio to record a DMF solo cut ("One To Think About") and a Posse Cut ("Wrong One To F**k With") that also featured myself and Ram rhyming. We ended up knocking out things pretty quickly, so it was looking like we were going to have some extra studio time left over. I rhymed first on the posse cut and while they were recording their verses I took the SP-12, my crate of records, and some headphones to the back of the room and whipped up another track in about 15-20 minutes for DMF to record. It was a track called “Skills”. There really wasn’t much to it*…lots of beat jacking, including Papa Chuk's "Texas Roughneck", with Ram + me on the back up vocals and hook, then we left the studio with three new cuts in a few hours.
