“One of my buddies said, ‘If you’re not fucking with Rittz, you’re not top of the line’ – meaning that when I write songs, I write to the highest standard,” says Rittz. “When it comes to rapping and this style that I do, it’s as good as it gets.” The title of Rittz’ new album Top Of The Line came from an unlikely source – a friend’s passing ad-lib on his 2014 LP Next to Nothing. And at this point in the Atlanta rapper’s career, few would disagree with this assessment.
In 2012, Rittz began his ascension by touring with rising star, Yelawolf. Wolf then sang the rapper’s praises to Tech N9ne. Tech, never one to let a good opportunity pass him by, quickly signed Rittz to his Strange Music label. Two successful releases, The Life And Times Of Jonny Valiant and Next to Nothing, followed – as did a show-stopping appearance on the 2013 BET Awards Cypher.
Since his last album’s release, Rittz continued to prove his mettle on the road. He toured again with Yela, as well as Kxng Crooked (formerly Crooked I), and headlined shows all over the country.
The ups and downs of life on tour are a big theme on Top Of The Line. While raising hell for months at a time was fun (as documented on the rousing “All Night”), it wasn’t without consequences. The powerful song “Just Say No” chronicles how the tour with Yelawolf went wrong.
