Young Kropes Presents: Collaboration Dedication Volume 3

Young Kropes: 6 Track EP

Young Kropes is a Hip-Hop producer.musician who is originally from here in Milwaukee but now resides in Tampa, Florida. Growing up, Kropes was a huge fan of Hip-Hop music. He especially took a liking to the West Coast sound. However, his mother didn’t approve of the genre and would often try and take away his music. He used this as inspiration to start writing his own music. He played around with song writing and recording with his brother when he was younger and got serious about doing his own music around 2006. His foray into the Hip-Hop scene began with a group he formed with friends called the Brew City Ballas. The group went on to release about three mixtapes. In 2008, the group hit a small snag with one member going to jail and Kropes deciding to move to Florida. But they do not consider themselves broken up. Since going solo, Kropes has released about five projects, been featured in various publications in both Milwaukee and Florida, performed at a large variety of venues, been nominated for awards, and more. He has described his style as “deep bass rap with a mid-90’s flavor.” His inspiration for this due to the fact that like most long time Hip-Hop fans, he feels that the genre was at it’s prime in the 90’s. He still respects the music now but feels the mainstream is seriously lacking in some areas. Kropes prides himself on being original but likes to remix songs from his favorite artists from time to time. He makes music that appeals to a wide range of tastes and throws in some Rock flavor on occasion. His inspiration for his lyrics comes from life and personal experiences. Besides working as a solo artist, Kropes also runs his own independent record label called Dub Duece Entertainment. The label features about 15 artists that range in style from Hip-Hop to Acoustic. The label is based both in Wisconsin and Florida with future plans for expansion. Unlike a lot of independent rappers, Kropes ultimate goal is not fortune and fame. He just wants to keep making quality Hip-Hop music that entertains the fans for as long as he possibly can
