Earlier this month, TOPE made his grand entrance into the Booth with New Day (Remix), a contemplative cut that won rave reviews from our readership. Today, the Portland representative’s back, and he’s brought a few friends along for the ride. On project lead single COLD HEART, he and fellow Rose City emcee EPP go in over an catchy, keyboard-led sample from Monarques’ Cold Cold Heart. Crew member G_Force mans the boards. For more from the trio—together known as TxE—check out Vs PRTLND when it drops in December. The project will feature 10 original cuts, each sampling a different Portland-based rock group.
