Keeping things moving after just releasing We Get It In True last month, the “T” in TxE – TOPE is set to release his follow-up solo album, Until The Next Time We Meet, on PRTLND indie rock label, Amigo/Amiga Recordings, on March 27th.
Giving FRSH SLCTS an exclusive first look into the album - TOPE blessed us today w/ the video premiere & free download of the album’s first official single,“Midnight” featuring a guest verse from L.A. spitter, TiRon + singer Caitlin Cardier on the hook & PRTLND slapsmith, TROX on the beat.
One of TiRon’s biggest supporters in the NW, TOPE actually first linked up w/ Ronnie thru a Twitter conversation regarding whether Asher Roth sucks at rapping or not (he of course does – but thats beside the point).
After that TOPE sent him the track, ‘Ron said he was feeling it & the rest was magic.For the video, TOPE again linked up w/ Noah Porter & stuck w/ the champagne theme of another Until The Next… track
CALLING AL S.I.N.ERS!!!!! Strength In Numbers is the movement and I Am Many is the prime minister. The Brooklyn born emcees debut LP on Creative Juices Music is out now. The 13 cut album entirely produced by Logik Proof is without filler, and unlike anything currently floating around the over saturated blogosphere of post traumatic, underachieving mediocrity. SIN is one banger after another of fresh, modern, raw hip hop dense with witty, subversive subject matter and breathtaking wordplay.
In a world where image trumps skills, and beats are the equivalent of a Michael Bay film, I Am Many propels into the unexplored future of what hip hop can be while still maintaining the mood, energy, and raw skill that made you love it in the first place. Hard beats from Logik Proof that slam in the trunk and compliment the elaborate, imaginative, sometimes perverted bars of a true ny emcee.

Never a time/ Never a time/ Never a time."
