Akil & Z-MAN – “What Time Is It”

Posted by TheMayor

It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Bigg Tae, after dropping the monumental album Concrete Dreams, which featured a lot of pioneer and up and coming MC’s from the Bay Area. After dropping his first album his sophomore effort has been much anticipated and from the tracks off the Pre Mixer it sounds like he picked up right where he left off. Please enjoy the Pre-Mixer while the finishing touches are added to the album, the release date will be coming soon.

The first track off the Pre Mixer is called “What Time is It?”, featuring Akil from The Monopoly and Z-Man from the Bay Area’s own Gurp City.

TOPR – Afterlife of the Party (New Album Out Now)

Posted by TheMayor

TOPR AFTERLIFECOVER

Gurp City introduces one of its newest collections of hip hop music’s hidden treasures—TOPR’s “AFTERLIFE OF THE PARTY” The project will be available February 22, 2017 via all major digital retail outlets.

A colossal juggernaut of an MC, who started his career as a Bay-wide battle roamer and homeless teenage graffiti writer (LORDS/CBS/WST/CMA/PCF/AMF/FTL) and forged his name as an iconic figure in the Bay Area’s hip hop music history, TOPR was a member of the Earthlings collective that opened for every major-market rap artist that played SF’s Maritime Hall in the late-90s and early-2000s. From there he went on to spawn his solo career as a songwriter and battle rapper before eventually finding a home with Gurp City. On this, his seventh solo studio album, he shares the billing with renowned stalwarts of the Bay Area rap scene such as DJ Quest, Z-Man, Otayo Dubb, DJ Defie, Philo, Ronnie Mac, Smiddy, Eddie K and Luke Sick.

AFTERLIFE OF THE PARTY showcases TOPR’s stout talents as a seasoned and confidant recording artist (jumping off with the sleeper hit “I Shouldn’t Have Left You” and culminates with the ominous harbinger “Warning Shots”) and highlights a hardcore and outlaw attitude of hip hop music artistry that may have easily been lost and forgotten. The album contains an ongoing theme of drug-addled miscreant turned somewhat well-adjusted adult, coming to terms with growing up, embracing fatherhood and the other realities facing todays aging B Boy / scumbag philosopher. Songs like “Cemetery Fence” and “Working Class” offer bleak depictions and drive home the stark realities that are constant for those that chose or are forced to eternally go “against it.” And to quote SF legends Faith No More: what is it? Maaan, what have you fucking got?

AOTP features 13 never-heard-before tracks with Cutty Bang and Otayo Dubb splitting the production duties pretty much half and half. It was mixed by Philo and TOPR himself and mastered by Shawn Hatfield (Audible Oddities) with an audio quality of the highest twenty-first century standard while def scratching from the featured turntablists completes the jam. The project has been described as “A fully realized TOPR” (Toph One/Let’s Side Magazine/AS/TMF). The production sounds as if TOPR and the A-list b-boys he has assembled to accompany the project mixed cocktails on the Neve console signed by Carl Perkins at A&M Studios in Hollywood and rapped, scratched and knocked bangers and slumps on through the night until the broad daylight and the job was done. One!

-LUKE SICK ( Sacred Hoop / Grand Invincible / Grand Killa Con)

The new album from TOPR, Afterlife of the Party, is now available on bandcamp. Look for it to hit iTunes etc. on Feb.22nd
Stop playin’ and hit the link:
