For the second installment of #TastemakerTuesdays, our featured tastemaker is Randy Roper. Randy is a very well-respected figure in the hip hop community, especially around the Carolinas. He’s one of the only ones to break out of the Carolinas and make a name for himself, which he did first by becoming the music editor for Ozone Magazine.

Today, he’s the business manager and co-founder of Million Dollar Dreamz, Operations Manager for Est. 1985 Talent & Repertoire, Associate Editor over at Exclusiveaccess.net, and also owns his own site, RandyRoper.com. You might also know him from his previous blog, WritersBlockMedia.net.

Long story short, everyone who knows him knows he’s someone to know. Does that make sense?
