"NEW VIDEO: TOP FLITE EMPIRE – OTFTM"

“OTFTM (Over Time For The Money)” is a song that has been getting top 10 requested on Sirius XM and radio stations in the Rocky Mountain Region of the US. Top Flite Empire, the rap group from Denver Colorado is unlike many due to the diversity of their music and its members. With a white frontman who sings as much as he raps (Johny Rocketz), a caucasian Cajuan rapper (Hypnautic) who is the most popular independent artist in Colorado and a black rapper (King Tef) from Colorado Springs who beat two different forms of life threatening rare cancers, the group’s music is as diverse as they are. - Mechanical Dummy

"In My City: Denver (Top Flite Empire)"

In My City: Denver introduces Top Flite Empire as one of Denver's emerging Hip Hop groups.

“In My City…” is city-based video series that will examine Hip Hop culture in smaller US markets. It begs the question, what happens to the people in the middle? What is the underlying culture of cities like San Antonio? What do artists from Denver sound like and where do they find their influences? What do Indianapolis radio stations play and do they support local artists? What is the history behind how bigger artists from Minneapolis have gained worldwide notoriety? What is the Hip Hop scene like in the cities we overlook?

Bio

Top Flite Empire is an American hip-hop duo formed in 2009 in Denver, Colorado, composed of Colorado-based rapper Brian “Hypnautic” Godeaux and Sean “King Tef” Garris. Survivors of rare cancer (King Tef), street violence (Hypnautic), untimely deaths of family members and best friends, (Hypnautic and Tef) and the current battle of a rare anemia in Hypnautic’s son, life itself has given Top Flite Empire all of the content it needs to tell incredible stories.

The duo has raised the visibility of the Rocky Mountain hip hop scene in the US when they were featured in Hip-HopDX’s (the most popular hip-hop blog in the world) first ever documentary, “In My City: Denver.” Hypnautic and King Tef, the polar opposite MC's, describe their sound as a mix of lyrical trap, conscious, rock and soul. Their radio single, O.T.F.T.M. was one of the top 10 songs on Sirius XM Hip Hop Nation in 2015. Now in 2016, off the heels of their debut album ‘Bad Decisions’ dropping at #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart and #9 on iTunes Hip-Hop in June 2016, Top Flite Empire is ready to claim their place among hip-hop’s elite.
