Weird of the Day: Jack Topht, “Why Live When You Can Die”

Jack Topht

When I did a post a couple weeks back about Well Worn Boot’s Wild Wild Fest, there was one act on the lineup I couldn’t get out of my head: Jack Topht, a bearded Buffalo rapper who reminds me of every functioning alcoholic I went to high school with in Upstate. Jack simultaneously makes me want to go back to Buffalo and stay as far the fuck away from there as I can. He’s awesome and I bet hanging out with him would turn me into a non-functioning alcoholic in a hurry.

Most of Jack Topht’s songs are about things like beer, pizza and hospital waiting rooms, but this track, which is my favorite, is a little more epic. It’s called “Why Live When You Can Die” and it’s basically his “Hey Ya!”, “Sabotage” and “99 Problems” all rolled into less than two minutes.
