n the hood people are used to creating something from nothing. They create art, music, food and their own language. Jared “Coppertop” Davis, along with beatsmith, Mouse on the Track took the word ‘saditty’ and made a regional hit. The word saditty means one who is self-righteous, snobby, conceited or prideful, according to the Urban Dictionary. However according to the current 225 resident CopperTop, a saditty chick is just what catches his attention. Continue reading on for the young rapper’s perspective because there’s more.

On Wax: Tell me about your music.
Copper Top: If I could describe my sound I consider it to be urban, mainstream. Basically, a lot of big hooks and mainstream mixes. I think it’s different because in the south a lot of times music is a lil’ more club driven. And I do make club songs but that’s not the force behind my music. I just genuinely try to make good records about different topics.

On Wax: I like “Saditty” with Mouse. I think it’s a club song.
Copper Top: I think I came across wrong. I don’t want to say that it’s not club driven. I make some songs with the intent that it could potentially be a nice club record. What I’m saying is, more so, that’s not my first goal when I hear a record – more so it’s about having some kind of concept behind it. I just don’t want to make a song and not have some type of meaning. Like the song, “Saditty”, Yea’ the beat is dancy and clubby but at the end of the day it was about taking something negative like the word ‘saditty’ and making it more positive towards females. Because a lot of times guys like that, guys like the girls that want to dress classy, speak well, they care about their appearance, things of that nature. They have bad attitudes but you accept it because you like the way they look, more so and that’s what the song was about.

On Wax: You think guys, who are visual beings would put up with a girl’s bad attitude just because she looks good?
Copper Top: Yeah.
On Wax: Wow!
Copper Top: I think so in some aspect. I don’t think a guys would necessarily put up with it forever. But I’m saying before we get to know each other, if a girl has a bad attitude it would be more acceptable. It would be like ‘Oh, she’s saditty.’ But that don’t mean it’s a negative thing. But it’s like she cares about herself she may not know you, no disrespect. You have to get to know a person. That’s kind of like really, more so what I’m talking about.

On Wax: Who are some of your musical influences.
Copper Top: Some of my musical influences are Jay-Z, Kanye West, Lil’ Wayne, Nas, Scarface, Biggie, Big Pun.

On Wax: What’s your writing process like?
Copper Top: Honestly, I flow with the music. I believe in finding the perfect beat, the perfect track and a melody. From there I try to make the perfect song. I think it’s different because a lot of times in the south music is more club driven. I make some songs with the intent that it could be a nice club record. That’s not my first goal when I hear a record. It has to have some type of concept. I believe sometimes the feel of the music determines what should go on.

On Wax: How has your music been received by fans so far?
Copper Top: I think it’s been promising. I get people that come up to me all the time, ‘Man, I love this song. I like the way you’re going.’ Well leading into my last project a lot of people had only heard “Saditty” or “I Think They On Me” so a lot of people didn’t really know how extensive my music was or what type of music I was trying to make. What they did, once they heard it, it was kind of a shock factor to where they listen to it and they were like, ‘Wow! You have a real major, mainstream sound.’ I haven’t heard anything from this market to sound like my project. And that was just more so because that’s the stuff I listen to, that’s the stuff that influences me; if I were to ever emulate something it would be something like that. I don’t think my music really sounds like any of the artists I look up to. But more so it sounds like me, it’s a representation of me. I’m a kid from New Orleans, I live in Baton Rouge, that’s kind of different. There’s a lot of people who done that but to really spark your musical career in an area where you’re not actually originally from is kind of difficult and I’ve been somewhat successful there.

On Wax: What’s your biggest accomplishment to date?
Copper Top: My biggest accomplishment would be the Pepsi Smash cipher that I did All-Star weekend with Rick Ross, Bun B and Webbie. It was a bunch of big name artists and I’m the only guy on the whole thing that people probably never heard of on a national level. It just so happens that I was at the right place at the right time.

On Wax: Who invited you to get on the song?
Copper Top: It was more so a lady by the name of Courtney Scott. She introduced me to the people that were doing it, actually shooting Webbie and Rick Ross. I was at a Webbie listening session and she introduced me to t - On Wax Magazine

Bio

From the musical oasis of New Orleans, LA Jared Davis a.k.a. Coppertop was born. Described by his cohorts as humble and determined by sight, but vicious and pungent lyrically, Coppertop keeps it real from the inside. Inspired by legends like the late Notorious B.I.G. Nas, Jay-Z, and Scarface, Coppertop has spent time fine tuning his highly developed wordplay into an undisputed mouth of the Mississippi.
Coppertop knew as a child that he had a passion for music. It wasn’t until watching the budding rap music scene of New Orleans rise that he realized his niche was wordplay. After blazing the streets of New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Atlanta, and Houston on mixtape after mixtape, the hungry rapper has a score to settle with the nation.

He began looking for a plan to break into the industry without going too far from his New Orleans roots.

Whether fast, slow, storytelling, or just straight spittin’, Coppertop will give the best MCs a run for their money, and that is exactly his plan. Coppertops mission is to claim the props that he feels the South rightfully deserves. Taking bytes of inspiration from the game that made him, Coppertop is not worried about holding his own against the competition. He quotes, “I’m ready for the obstacles, because Ive been rapping since I was nine and my life is as diverse as my delivery.”

His rhymes inspire life and “life abundantly.” His message takes the hood on another journey, one with hope and promise, fewer struggles and realistic endings. Although, Coppertop is in his prime his music speaks way beyond his youth and encompasses more than merely what some consider southern rap.

Coppertop is humble and ready to enter the industry with full force. His energy and talent pour out on the singles “Cruisin”, “They One Me”, and “Sections and Bottles”. Songs like these will entertain, uplift, and challenge you.

Coppertop is described as a youngster with an old soul and youthful spirit whom has chosen not to find out about life for him-self but to learn and change for the better from those who have come and gone before him. The road has been set for him and his message is sure not to disappoint you.
