"Who is Mr. Hip? Is he the hip to the hop, the pulmonary push that gives wild magic a voice, that pumps poetry to lungs through a bumpin' speaker? Is the hip for hipster, that dude who made rapping "eating nothing that goes poo" cooler than Bedford Avenue before the hit television show Girls ran amok over Brooklyn? Does it allude to an astronomical count of hips broken from voraciously swaying to his vocals over dope beats? He is legendary enough that it could be all of the above, and yet, so much more that that. He has the heart, mind, and skill of a classic poet and the infectious and captivating energy of a viral YouTube sensation. Being around his rhymes will give you a contact high; they leave you mellow and yet incredibly awe-struck and charmed, like they've gotten up to offer their seat to the hunched over old lady on the bus without hesitation, and engaged in lively conversation to make your ride pleasant on an otherwise harrowing commute. You learn about the rapper as he is and knows his daily adventure, and in turn, you also learn a bit about yourself. Associative, alliterative, and charmingly hilarious, his verses and verve pull you into a day in the life, chock full of wooing ladies, dodging crazies, surreptitiously vaping, and all the effortlessly delicious ways to prepare vegan food." - Charlotte, a Unicorn
