INTERVIEW: TOPE COVERS THE MOAB SUN NEWS
TOPE recently stopped in Moab, Utah on the 3AM Tour and sat down with Jenna Talbott for an in depth interview that made the front page of the Moab Sun News.
"Portland-raised rapper “TOPE” has set out on his largest tour to date, and he's sweeping through Moab to play a free 21-and-over show at Club Rio on Saturday, June 11.
Anthony Rian has released three albums, and is slowly releasing singles from his newest album, “3AM in Oakland.” Rian earned the name TOPE through his teens when he became a fixture at Portland’s local hip-hop showcases and freestyle cyphers.
TOPE moved to Oakland within the past year.
“It’s been the first time in a while I’ve been able to take a break, slow down, and take the time to think about what I really want to say as an artist,” Rian said. “It’s been me up with my thoughts real late at night.
