Tope BBS Preview_054

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)

Rob Milton “Ananlog” featuring TOPE

August 20th, 2014


A lot of cool things happened to me this year when I released my Take Your Time video, one of them was meeting Richmond, VA soul singer Rob Milton. A contributing writer to Soul Bounce (where Analog premiered), Rob is also an aspiring soul singer mixing elements of Jazz and Hip Hop into his sound. On his latest “Analog,” Rob speaks on how the digital age has affected love and relationships while grabbing a verse from TOPE to echo those thoughts. Produced by Daron Jones out of the DC area, this is definitely a joint for all the soul lovers out there. Be sure to check out the Second Letter directed visuals below and look for Rob Milton to be featured on #BROKEBOYSYNDROME.
