"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.
Slo Pain

Troll, also known as SLO PAIN, started rapping in a jail cell in 2002.
With nothing to do but read books or write songs he developed a taste of rhymes similar to what he listened to while growing up. Troll thrives on music! Some of his most inspiring artists are Ice Cube, ICP, Tech n9ne, twisted, Sugar Free and even old school Easy E, 2pac and Brotha Lynch. When he got out of jail he went straight to a halfway house. While in the halfway house he would go to school and use the computers to look up other local rappers on Myspace and found the scene that best suits his genre. The Horror Core scene in Denver has a lot of underground talent and a huge fan base, but it was hard for Troll to adapt with such a large amount of underground rappers. Fans wouldn't listen to just anybody. That's when he started changing his style so he could gain a fan base and start making his name and record label (Slo Pain Reckordz) more known in the state of Colorado.

Troll calls his style of music Dark rap or murder music.
Dark rap is a compilation of several different styles of rap, such as Horror Core, Hip Hop, Gangster Rap and even Club rap. After a year and a half of promoting his name and his style of music he gained a fan base. As his fan base grew he booked more and more openings for shows. Troll has opened for many artists, such as Esham, Any Body Killa, Black Pegasus, Liquid Assassin Scum and more. He has also played at the Gathering Of Juggalo's 2008. Troll is known for his very hype and energetic stage performance and for the ability to get the crowd motivated to the point where the venue shacks and walls crack. He is also known to open and close the show all in one set due to draining the energy from his fans.

Troll now has 2 other artists on his record label, several different lines of merchandise, one CD produced and another CD about to drop in mid 2009 titled "HIGHWAY EIGHTY SICKS"! The new CD HIGHWAY EIGHTY SICKS is going to blow the doors off the hinges and knock any other CD off the shelf with its new flavor and fresh collabs with Colorado's sickest and biggest names in the game. Troll is currently seeking out-of-state shows that will get him promotions and more Colorado opening slots with bigger named artists.
