More about TOP

Unsure if Hip-Hop music found him or if he found his love for Hip-Hop music, one thing is for sure, T.O.P. and Hip-Hop became inseparable at a young age. Born and raised in Reading, Pennsylvania. T.O.P. is an acronym for (T)riumph (O)ver (P)overty and symbolizes the underdog mentality that is present throughout his music. Whether addressing broad global issues, or personal matters such as poverty, teenage fatherhood and being separated from his most dearest friend (his brother Marqus) due to incarceration, T.O.P is known for having a "no fear" approach when creating music that gives you an in depth view of his trials, hard times, victories and defeats with each and every song.
