At some point I’m sure Fatees and I are gonna find some time to eat some pupusas at El Zocalo.

Saturday you’re gonna have to re-up on whatever vices you need to get through it because Big Max’s band Ovipositor is throwing down out in Chinatown and we riding till the wheels fall off.

And if we’re still alive on Sunday we gonna have to hit up La Palma’s legendary glass case of chicharrones for some tacos de canasta (below) and a big bag of bunuelos to take away the pain.

Heads Up! TopR Update. New Album, Tour, etc…

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008

Heres a message from Lord TopR keep an eye out for when he’s heading to your city. -thuggy


Gurp City fam Topr is makin moves… PLEASE SUPPORT THIS ISH

A lot has been happening in the world of TOPR, and its about time you all were filled in. The Marathon of Shame album was picked up by 2b1 Records, a local label here in SF. They filmed the original album release party at 12 Galaxies in SF and pieced together a DVD documentary that will be included as a bonus disc with the new album. It has hella interviews, live graf footage, music videos, old ass freestyles from me and The Earthlings at Maritime Hall and new performances from Conceit, BOAC, Delinquent Monastery, Thunderhut Project and myself. Theres even a mind blowing 10 min + turntablism set from scratch innovator DJ Quest. The whole thing clocks in at over 73 minutes.
Heres a trailer for the film…

2b1 also secured me a national distribution deal with Sony Red, which means the album can be bought at any record outlet in the US and Canada. Yes, you can buy my new CD/DVD “The Marathon of Shame” at a store near you. If you want to make sure to get the album you should go to your local independent or even corporate record store NOW. If i can get people to pick up enough units I can keep the album in stores. If no one buys it the first month I’m fucked… so if your a true TOPR fan YOU WILL GO ORDER THIS ALBUM AT A STORE NEAR YOU RIGHT AWAY. If its not in stock have then make them order it for you from Sony Red. Tell your friends… this is the most important step my career has ever taken and I need your support.


I’m also embarking on tour to support the album: east coast dates (with GFE) and west coast dates (with foul Mouth Jerk, Dick Nasty and DJ ATM). Please spread the word and repost this flier to your friends in these citys. If you have never seen a TOPR show, I think the DVD trailer above proves its a experience not to be missed.


I’m still a grassroots, independent artist with a small budget and a lot of heart. I wouldn’t have been able to make it this far without the support of my friends and fans. That being said, i need your support now more then ever. Call local radio shows and request to hear TOPR “The Marathon of Shame”. Spread the word to your friends on myspace and message boards/blogs. Help me make this work, because I can’t do this shit forever. This is my last big shot, please help me reach the people who need to hear music like mine… otherwise I’m going to have to figure something else out, and thats not an option I’m ready to live with. Fuck that shit. Thank you for all the love and support over the years, lets keep it moving.

Here’s to You,

Topper Holiday
E-Lings / Gurp City / LORDS / CMA / PCF / CBS

p.s. My whole catalog is still available on Itunes.

Happy Birthday to Big Money! (Mark)

Wednesday, April 16th, 2008

A big happy birthday to one of the true homies of the Gurp City Family and part of the inspiration for the most infamous blog post on the this site. Do Money Mark a favor and go check out his blog Game Viking, he’ll put you up on more game about games than anyone else in the game (even though he just admitted to me he’s been to busy to update in hellsa long.) And if you’re in the city this evening we’ll be grabbing beers somewhere along the Haight. Holla -thuggy

MC Oroville is Always a Day Late and A Dollar Short…

Monday, April 14th, 2008

If you dont smoke yourself to death on 4/20, you should go check out MC Oroville cause a little ruckus over at the elbo room in SF. The man from the land of mountains that are flat doesn’t play in the big city too often so be sure and let all your homies know. AND, if you still don’t have an MC Oroville “Do soMETHing” album, holla atcha boy, I think i still got a box of em somewhere. Some of the cases might be a lil dirty on the front tho…

see you there -thuggy

Luke Sick Goes Columbine…

Friday, April 11th, 2008

The opinions expressed by Luke Sick in this report back from last night Topr show at 111 Minna pretty much reflects the ideas and views of the Gurp City family. We stand behind his blight opinions and drunk shit talk even though he thinks his shit don’t stink.


For the record, the sound at 111 Minna for rap performances blows dick. Good thang that us Gurp heads like it nice and janky. Like I told Dick Nasty after last night’s show, “Shit, I’d listen to y’all rock if it was comin’ thru clock radio speakers submerged in the rhea that I got after eating a stale Popeye’s biscuit at Boac’s crib.” Frankenstein’s Topr ripped the loyal, coked up audience like a sadistic sheep-herder, and Fatees and Thuggy got reprimanded by the bouncer for moshing. Fatees was under the wing of his father and mentor, Booger Keys. He had the dope line for the honeys he was poppin’ it to: “Yo, you can come home and stay wif me girl, I’m stayin’ at Thuggy’s.” Needless to say, the bitches were jockin’. Fattees, here’s some double-OG advice for the next time you go out on a trim hunt: buy your own B-12 and emancipate yourself from the confines of Daddy-Yay-Care. Desperation is a stinky cologne, but smells less like piss if worn alone. As the night wore on and Topr launched into “Grindhouse,” the double-fisted PBR cans began to wrinkle under the pressure of the tense predators’ sweaty hands, as we all slowly realized that it was Thursday fuckin’ night, and no one was gonna after-party-till-the-sky-turned-blue, because all these high-rent paying lunatics had to go to work for the man the next day just to be allowed to breathe is this corner of this expensive shithole we call the Area. Burn it all the fuck down. Start with the speakers and Radio Shack soundboard at Minna (A Vestax Pro is bigger than that piece of shit), then torch the whole fucking club and all the fuckin art, then bowl a fireball down the Embarcadero and make the whole 7×7 mile radius a pile of ash. Pour oil in the Bay and let that fucker burn and boil too, take a flamethrower to the whole fucking Peninsula and detonate the East Bay while were at it—the demise lullabyed to the tune of Topr’s “Why?” And only one king shall emerge from the remains, to lead the disgruntled survivors toward rebuilding the kingdom just to hate it all over again. We’re of course the only one’s who’d survive, cuz that’s what we’ve been doing the whole fucking time anyway. All hail the Gurp!

Thanks for another inspiring show Topr! It’s not like your performances make me feel good necessarily, but that isn’t what’s important. It’s more like your music brings together a bunch of people like me (us) who can’t fucking stand it anymore, and when we’re all together I feel like we could just like… I dunno, like all band together and… just like kill every-fuckin’-body, ya know what I mean? That’s what keeps me coming back.

– Luke Sick

A Year Ago This Past Weekend…

Sunday, April 6th, 2008

Last year around this time an essential part Gurp City passed away. Brian (Evil B) Leventon was our bartender and close friend. While most other douchebags were serving party punch and Jager shots to the Greek assholes, Evil B treated us likes we were kings. High powered drinks and pitchers of beer were always waiting for us as soon as we walked in the door. Undeniably one of the coolest cats ever to stand behind a bar in Chico, and an all around good friend who would sacrafice anything to help a friend in need. It’s a shame you had to pass homie, I still think about you every time I watch an A’s game or stare at a glass of whiskey (which has been alot lately.) Gurp City will never be the same without you B. The Gurp City family has expanded soo much over the years but only the true OGs can claim All-Star status if they happened to be one of the fortunate few to have been served by you.
Brian, you are truly missed any will never be forgotten.
