revealed the cover art (above) to Top of the Line
which drops May 6th. According to the XXl Magizine exclusive
the cover art has a 70’s or 80’s movie poster feel with Rittz
being the star attraction. Rittz
talked about Top of the Line
in an interview with NE Hip Hop in August of last year.
He stated “
I’m waiting on the rest of the production. The way I like to get it is I like to get all my beats together and I can hear the beats and go ‘ok this is classic’ or ‘this is the sound that I want.’ Right now I got a guy in Germany names Heartbeatz who’s been making a lot of dope tracks. So I reached out to Seven from Strange and I think once Seven sends the tracks in, it’s going to be well-rounded and I can start writing on it…With Strange, your album’s gotta come out when it’s marketable and around every other artist…I’m just really going to try and rap my ass off on there and show you why I’m top of the line.”
