Started in 2013 by Craig Hopkins, after seeking a means to produce and record hip-hop music that went against the grain of what he heard everyday, and inspired from the various genres he grew up loving. That Guy Productions is a collaborative of emcees in the 413 that have a love for music and the community they have grown up in. TGP prides itself on striving for the elements of hip-hop music the mainstream has forced out. Hopkins is currently studying piano and guitar music, as well as digital production at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth with professor Jing Wang.
