Hip Hop In A Hat Vol. 1 First In Calgary!

For the first time ever in Calgary, Hip Hop Synergy brings you the event of the century! Ok maybe not that epic but still, if your looking for the best way to spend your friday night and you’re a closet hip hop enthusiast like most Calgarians are, you need to come out and support this brand new movement!

The night will unfold in the most peculiar and chaotic way ever imagined. First Calgary’s premier DJ, Ritchie will kick off the night spinning the best hits of hip hop to set the mood just right. Everyone will gather ’round the stage to watch the host make a fool of himself by offering puny quips and out dated jokes. Before you know what hits you the event will kick off at precisely 9:30 PM with an unpredictable start. A member of the audience will draw the first artist to perform out of a hat!

The artists will continue through the roster in this exact fashion, creating an energetic and incredibly involved environment unlike any other hip hop event to hit this city! Audience members will be responsible for choosing the best artist of the night using a new voting system created and developed by the Hip Hop Synergy team. The artist with the best performance of the night will be awarded with a certificate and hundreds of dollars worth of prizes donated by local business who support the original and upcoming stars of YYC.

Other businesses and artists have offered up door prizes for the guests as well which will be randomly thrown out at the audience members who show the most enthusiasm and involvement in the event. The organizers hope to make this event an ongoing monthly debacle for the hip hop community to continue growing in a positive and reinforcing environment.

If you want to attend the event you can purchase tickets from any of the artists listed in the roster for the evening. All the money from the tickets is going to be divided up among the artists to help them support their growing career in the music industry! There will be a merch table offering some of the artist’s fine apparel and CD’s and on the Hip Hop Synergy site a page has been set up to provide the audience with a digital compilation of the music for them to continue to enjoy and support the artists they love.

This just might be the best Hip Hop event born in the city full of secret Hip Hop lovers! The only way this event can continue to grow, shed light on the artists and their music, and positively re-invent the image of the Calgary urban scene is through the continuing support of the fans so if you want to learn more about the event, RSVP on the Facebook event page, or purchase tickets from the artists to help support them, visit any of the links below! See you there!

calgary hip hop review on aye

A.Y.E. – The Review

I was cruising the Calgary artist playlist and stumblde upon a unique voice I haven’t yet heard. I have to admit the playlist is incredibly diverse. The records ranged from the heavy sampled old school flavour all the way to the early 90’s Jay feel. This guy flows with an old school tongue giving you the impression that hip hop oldie goodies aren’t dead yet.

I found myself actually listening to each of the songs in the playlist he has on Reverb and genuinely nodding along trough the whole thing. His vocals generously compliment the fluidity of the instrumentals. The melodic choices are nothing short of genius. A lot of artists are self proclaimed classics but this one right here actually lives up to the claim.

Just the right amount of braggadocio flows mixed in with the humility of a real down to earth humble artist who was born to create. Songs to inspire, songs to vibe with, and songs to get the party started. Overall this guy’s a real inspiration for anyone looking for a creative mentor. Take a listen our Choice Track share your thoughts!
