Rising Queens, NYC emcee Bryant Dope is preparing to release his debut studio album, which is due out next year via Young One Records. In the meantime, he offers this free 8-track EP, produced by fellow Queens native Marc.R, who also serves as BD's tour DJ. Additional production was provided by Elmont, NY's A1 The Robot and France's DELA, and the tape was mastered by Dan Millice, who also handled A$AP Rocky's "LONG.LIVE.A$AP".

ATS consists of front man Rob Coin (Whuzi) and producers Joao Gonzalez (Soft Glas) and Day G. Can you dig it?
