TOPE Voted At #5 Freshest In The Northwest

TOPE: 2014 has been a busy year for TOPE - the year started out with the release of the TAKE YOUR TIME music video from his 2013 TROUBLEMAN EP and a Erykah Badu co-sign following. Along with the genre-crossing group album "Vs PRTLND" with Epp and Calvin Valentine as TxE, that gained them XXL's attention.

TOPE continued with a trip to SXSW in Austin, Texas and tour dates throughout the year with artists including Mobb Deep, Ty Dolla $ign, Bun B, People Under The Stairs and more. TOPE also graced the cover of PDX's Vortex Music Magazine and Crayon Beats Magazine with TxE, plus had his TROUBLEMAN EP released on Limited Edition Vinyl. Throw in a B-Side EP entitled CHICKEN WINGS AND ICE CREAM CONES and BUZZFEED naming TxE one of the 10 PDX Hip-Hop Artists You Need On Your Radar, all this while collaborating with LA Veteran Blu for his upcoming album Broke Boy Syndrome dropping this fall. And its still only June.

With all these events adding up, yesterday Juice Radio placed TOPE at #5 in their annual FRESHEST IN THE NW list, marking his first appearance on the list with an impressive top five slot. Check out what D-Money and the rest of the Juice Radio panel had to say about TOPE's recent rise.
