Top Authority was one of the first rap groups from Flint, Michigan and among the earliest of the underground Midwest rap scene to release a nationally recognized album. Bootleg, a member of The Dayton Family, told Murderdog magazine, "We grew up together, same hood. We'd be together every day. That's family." He lists them as leading lights in Flint music, along with acts like Ready for the World and MC Breed.
They first came to public attention with the single "93 (Things Ain't How They Should Be)" from the debut album "Something To Blaze To". The album reached #21 on Billboard's Top R&B Albums chart in April 1994. The "rolling g-funk trio" followed up with "Rated G" for Trak Records in 1995. It featured scratches from DJ Aladdin and reached #16 on the Top R&B Albums chart. Many fans considers 1997's "Top Authority Uncut (The New Year)" to be their best release. It peaked at #21, with the single "World War III" charting at #37 on Billboard's Hot Rap Singles. In 2009 Top Authority returned with their fourth album, "Kush Music", on which MC Breed and Do or Die make guest appearances.
