If you're looking for a new wave of hip hop, you’ll need to meet two of my favourite artists right now. Newagehip aka Hippie & Dashype!

Newagehip aka Hippie received his first shot at the Capcity showdown back in December, 2014. He was offered a spot in the competition after dropping freestyles at a bush party in Embrun. Since then Hip has performed over 70 shows in the city of Ottawa. Opening for artists such as MGK at Algonquin Commons, Freddie Gibbs at Babylon Nightclub, & Comethazine at the Bourbon Room!
A big turning point was when Hip crossed paths with Kyazze & Black Irish in 2015 after opening for Jazz Cartier at Ritual Nightclub with Swift Crew. Kyazze & Hip have since thrown countless parties & shows all over the city and Hip never throws a show without his partner Dashype.

Presently Das & Hip have been spending the year off performing, and have been stacking up music in the studio. The goal is to start dropping a song a week.
