Al Tamper is a well rounded artist. He is meticulous in his efforts to keep hope alive in the true school forms of hip hop. Tamper followed his calling to hip hop as a young bboy with a knack for making sure his name was in as many nooks and crannies of the city as possible. While making himself part of the culture of hip hop (simply for the love) Tamper made himself a resident loiterer at his local independent record label and music production studio via Racecar (Modill, BlackCollar) until its final days. This introduced an influence of a plethora of great practitioners and stars of the DJ and emcee world. These days you can find Tamper wordsmithing musical gems to present on a stage near you.
