"Beyond Race Magazine"

Ever been jumped by six angry dudes? Well, listen to this album and you'll know what it feels like. This MC crew from Seattle attacks with a fresh new strategy—keeping it real. What a concept! Each member owns their respective style, resulting in this amalgamation of East Coast, West Coast and everywhere in between. They have fun, but they're also serious about what they do. And what do they do exactly? They bring a simple message to the youth of today—think about it!

The Warning (2007)



Formed in 2006, Top Left has quickly gained a reputation for their unique style and energy. Members have been a part of numerous underground acts, and have been performing and releasing records collectively for over 10 years.

Originally from both east and west US coasts, as well as Canada, the members of Top Left have converged in Seattle to form a dynamic force that's turning heads. With a wide, but cohesive range of diversity, the group brings together many facets of hip hop to form an alluring sound, bringing a fresh element to the northwest hip hop scene.

Witty and defiant lyricism, interlaced with cryptic thoughts, captivate audiences and challenge listeners to think. Raw urban narratives and gritty rhymes blend with occasionally serious topics, that beg pondering. The group's foundation in graffiti culture, social defiance, and a relentless desire to impact the youth of today, serve as a foundation for underlying messages, filled with symbolism and sarcasm.

The group is spearheaded by producer J.Lee, whose pounding beats drive the music, with a critically acclaimed style that's gained him undergound success as a full-time producer/artist, and CEO of the up-and-coming Seattle-based indie label Audiodose (A.D. Records). Tracks are lined with clean melodic rhythms, thick with emotion, and a slightly sinister edge.

With an explosive stage delivery, Top Left has been said to generate enough energy to power a small town, leaving average hip hop in the dust. With a fierce and unyielding expressive passion, Top Left is making waves. Hip hop fans can expect to start hearing about the buzz this crew is just starting to generate.
