Portland Producer and recent winner of the iStandard Showcase, Samarei grabs TOPE for his new project “BEST IN CLASS.” Over some soulful horns and synth work, TOPE rounds out the project with the message that “all good things must come to an end.” Check out the track below and be on the lookout for Samarei on a two month tour with MC Lars and MC Chris.
The first time I heard Tope was back in 2010 on a TxE track, since then I’ve been a fan. It’s been awesome watching Tope grow as an artist and performer over the last few years. With huge steps taken this year for Tope he only plans to keep moving forward with his new project Broke Boy Syndrome(BBS). Any chance I get I make sure to attend either a Tope or TxE concert. In August, on a hot Sunday afternoon Tope stopped by the E+E office to chat about BBS, 2014, and also the future of TxE. – Jordan Salazar (@KNWXVSN)
