What's up, my name is Slapp Turner and I am an up and coming producer planning on taking the music industry by storm. I have done productions for a number of underground and rising artists, and I am working towards doing productions for artists on a larger scale.
Slapp Turner has produced for such underground groups and artists including "SANDPAYPA" "SICK YG" "LYNCH LOCALLE" "NON-CENTZ" "EQUIPTO" "EMARCO A.K.A. E-MAC" "THE BLOCKWILDAS'" "YOUNG GENERAL" "RICO NEVOTION" "SWISH & LIL' SEL" AND "CAMBINO". Slapp Turner has even produced a hot song featuring rap superstar "DA BRAT." (see Journal of a Blockwilda by Sandavol aka Sandpaypa, "Cutthroats") Slapp has also met such infuences as Marvin Gaye, 2Pac, Chuck D, Phife Dawg, Shock G, Messy Marv, JT the Bigga Figga, Ray Luv and YZ. Slapp Turner is now residing in St. Paul Minnesota and is in the process of starting D.A.M.A.G.E.D. Entertainment.
Yes and no. Since I mainly produce music for artists, it would be them performing. I have been on stage performing before in San Francisco where I am from and I would not hesitate to perform with an artist representing the music I created.
Once I ended up on a list of artists that was supposed to do this show and I found out through the flier. I never enlisted for the show but I went anyway. The crowd was kind of rowdy and they had just booed a group off the stage. It was my turn and I guess a few people in the crowd had thrown some chairs so when I walked on stage the person who was hosting the show stepped up to the mic and said that if folks continued to throw chairs he would put an end to the show and kick everyone out with no refunds. Now the crowd is angry, shouting and throwing up turf signs. I started thinking this dude is going to get me killed up here on the stage with him, so I reached around from behind him and snatched the microphone saying hold up let me do this first. My music started and I proceeded to rock the show. I am not going to lie, I was scared. This was my first time on a stage and in front of an angry mob. Plus, the stage was only 2 steps up from the main floor so bum rushing the show would have been very easy. I stood at the edge of the stage in the crowd and did my thing. The crowd got hype and cheered at a breakdown I made in the track and at the end I got endless props.
My influences are Timbaland, The Neptunes, Dr. Dre, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, Jermaine Dupri, Jay Dee, Kanye West, Swizz Beatz, Rick Rock, E-A-Ski, Missy Elliott, Just Blaze.
