Your Daily Lick: TOPR

The Marathon of Shame (2B1 Records)

Yeah, we get it: all hip-hop’s whack but yours, and all MCs suck but you. TOPR’s flow is bold and distinct. DJ Quest and Dick Nasty’s beats, samples, and production are bright-eyed and engaging. But the lyrics too often rely on clichéd posturing, deadening the impact of an otherwise impressive effort.
