Marc Summers is an artist based out of Phoenix, Arizona. His first venture into music was as a producer at the age of 15. It wasn't till he was 18 that he wrote his first verse and from there on, he's been writing non stop ever since. He joined a local band of talented artists known as First Flight and released "We R Future" in 2007. He then decided that he wanted to release a solo mixtape. He fell upon the title "TheAlphaTape" because this is his own personal beginning into music. Marc Summers' goal is to share the idea of being yourself with the world through sharp lyricism, witty punchlines, and a constant vulnerability that is unique it's own way.

Hola, amigos. I know it's been a long time since I rapped at ya, but a lot of crazy shit has been going down.
First off is the newest news: RAP FAN hats are here. The response to the shirts has been great but if you know me you know I'm a hat guy so I'm extra hyped to have hats in stock now. They are snapbacks and come in five different colorways, with RAP FAN on the front and Trackstar across the back. You can check them out, along with the shirts and of course mixtapes, at www.therapfan.com. Oh, and each hat comes with a free cd.

I've been on the road so much I've slacked a bit on my mixtape release schedule, but I promise there is dopeness on the way. The David Ruffin Theory project (Tef Poe & Rockwell Knuckles) is nearly done and will be available soon--and it is pretty damn incredible. I've also got a sampler mix coming for Nick Menn's Goon Road project, which will is shaping up quite nicely (and features an excellent Killer Mike verse), and a couple more concept tapes that should come out quite nice. In the meantime, here are some of my most recent-ish releases you may not have heard, just in case you want some quality rap music in your life.
