Everywhere I turn or click I hear about how dead the rap, hip hop, and r’n’b scene is in Calgary. Unfortunately it’s the voices of the crusty, armchair peanut gallery, hipsters out there, who sit behind their laptops and tablets and spew out nonsensical musings filled with an elaborate, yet uninterpretable vernacular, that we keep hearing; And all they’re really looking for is revenue generating “click pieces” to stir up a few more peso’s. Are you with me so far?
Well frankly, I’m sick of it. I’m tired of hearing all the negative reviews, garbage editorials, and outright outrageous claims these so called “hip hop heads” keep coming out with. So instead of writing another one of this types of “I Hate Hipsters and Calgary’s Hip Hop Scene” articles I’ve decided to do something a bit different. Hip Hop Synergy is about joining forces to create something bigger than what we can accomplish alone. That’s where this piece comes in.
Instead of bashing and badgering we’re going to come together and bring you a monthly event list so you don’t get bored. We’re also going to start reviewing urban artists in Calgary to help shed the light onto the glowing scene that actually exists in the places most of these doofus hipsters are afraid to look. Artists beware! Check back for an update on the review. If you want us to do an honest review of something and we haven’t yet found you then feel free to let us know on our Contact Page. Sound good? Are you with us? Good. So here we go.

Sonreal Nov 21 – 8:00 PM @ SAIT
