From surviving a childhood with two drug-addicted parents to having 6 years worth of music and memories (including his proposed ‘3AM‘ album) stolen at a show, TOPE is a true testament of the power of perseverance, positive thinking and believing in your vision. On his latest project, ‘Some Things Gotta Change,’ TOPE provides signature fresh and transparent sounds with upbeat joints like “How I Know” and “The Man,” plus more introspective tracks like “Trying To Forget” and “Better Place.” Catch the 7 tracks of dopeness below and be sure to catch TOPE live this month if you’re out on the West Coast!
