TopR Gives Thanks to the Gurpo Nation

I would like to thank all the Gurpos and Gurpettes for helping make the show this last Friday the most satisfying and successful performance of my long and alcohol drenched career. All the opening acts killed and the crowd response was gracious to the point of being almost over whelming. As I watched Conceit and BOAC’s set from the balcony, enhaling blunt smoke from the stoners below and witnessed the boozed up crowd going absolutely bananas during they’re set, I realized that I could not ask for a more supportive group of fans and friends. As we took the stage and the throngs of gurped out hip hop aficionados pushed forward to the stage, I felt like all these years of hard work is finally beginning to pay off. I’m about to head down to the 2B1 warehouse in the Mission to go over footage from the performance which will eventually become the DVD half of the double DVD/CD that will be the official release of The Marathon of Shame. We have national distro on this one, and i think I’m finally ready to jump into the national spotlight. Once again, I would like to thank all of you for making it happen. I said it at the end of the show, and I mean this whole heartedly, Gurp City is the best crew in hip hop right now and its about time we let the world know. 2008 is our year. Here’s to you.

Check out TopR performing “Security! Security!” at the  12 Galaxies this past weekend.
