What can i say about this guy? I first met a young Slop Back in 1995...He was fresh out of Highschool and was already becoming a beast on the ASR - 10. Making dope beats and DJ'ing has always been his passion. Also known as T. the Beat Specialist,
this Tampa, Florida/Phoenix Arizona-based producer/DJ is Also Co-Founder of the Beat Fanatic Music Group. This month Coalmine records released Heltah Skeltah - Midnight Madness Remix EP Featuring Slopfunkdust's Production. He has also been instrumental in Popularizing Beat Scociety, A forum where Top - Flight Producers such as Nottz, Just Blaze, Illmind ect. showcase thier production talents live on stage. As a DJ he has traveled all over the globe bringing hip-hop to places as far as Poland. Below you can check out Slop @ Beat Society held at The Knitting Factory in NYC a few years Back.

This song was re-introduced to me by @elegantslummer on Twitter. The Slave produced "Inside Out", written by Jesse Rae, peaked at #12 in 1982....as you can tell there are similarities to slave's Hit at the time "Watching you". I think this throwback record is mesmerizing and Funky...Plus the lead singers voice has a haunting feel to it...I love it!
