What I like most about the Minneapolis hip hop collective is the unique production provided by DJs and producers Paper Tiger & Lazerbeak. They seem to add a punk spirit to hip hop production. Both Paper Tiger & Lazerbeak have released solo material under the Doomtree label, and now Paper Tiger is about to release a new EP on August 14 called Summer. You can pre-order the EP now via the Doomtree website. Your pre-order will not only include the EP when it is available, but a beat tape featuring a 15-track cd of unreleased material from Paper Tiger. Take a listen to the track "Gold Pass."
