“Each (TOPR) track is an anthem of hedonistic individualism, a contradictory self-affirmation of pride and despair, intense motivation and ultimate fatalism, all driven by a serious bent to rap, write (graffiti and get on gurp). TOPR is a reminder of what bay area indie rap can and should be.”-Mesh Magazine

  10. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
