Oakland (via Portland) artist TOPE returns with new music entitled “The Man” produced by Stewart Villain, featuring vocals from Cash Campain and cuts by DJ Flip Flop. It’s been a crazy few months for TOPE as he moved from The Bay to LA and back, and recently had his laptop and entire new album stolen at a show in San Francisco. Producer / Rapper TOPE is considered one of the top up and coming artists in the Northwest region and has been recently featured on XXL, The Source, 2DopeBoyz, Okayplayer, Jay-Z’s Life + Times, Hip Hop Wired, Hip Hop DX, and more for his album latest BROKE BOY SYNDROME. Since his debut album in 2010, TOPE has produced and/or collaborated with artists including Slum Village, Blu, Planet Asia, TiRon, Myka 9, Abstract Rude, Scarub of Living Legends, LMNO, and many many more.
With a commanding stage presence and energetic live show, TOPE has shared stages with hip hop legends including Nas, Mobb Deep, Talib Kweli, Run The Jewels, Deltron 3030, Big KRIT, Dom Kennedy, Black Milk, Mac Miller, Ty Dolla $ign, Digable Planets, Hieroglyphics, Aesop Rock, The Coup, People Under The Stairs, Macklemore and countless others. In early 2014 TOPE also gained attention from Soul icon Erykah Badu herself for his TAKE YOUR TIME video.
Bouncing back the only way he knows how, TOPE connects with long time collaborators Stewart Villain and DJ Flip Flop as well as new comer Cash Campain for the soul and boastful joint, “The Man.” After getting personal with his last single Thank You, TOPE gets back to the bars on his latest release, with Cash Campain smoothing things out.
