“The Top” is a hip hop blast of good vibes. With its boom bap-inspired instrumental and slick bars, the track winks at the golden days of hip hop.

Taking inspiration from iconic DJ/Producers like Nujabes, Ta-Ku, J-Dilla, Madlib, DJ Premiere, Oliver Rodley granted us a head-nod-tempting track. The mysterious lo-fi hip-hop producer and beatmaker from Los Angeles joined forces with Akil the MC of Jurassic 5 fame, who knew exactly how to turn the track into the gem it is right now.

“The Top” is the first single from Rodley’s upcoming album Sweet Green Tea, set for release on September 24th, so stay tuned.
