Artist Profile

Name: HiPOST
Label: CALI'R MUSIC GROUP
Location: CULVER CITY CA

Biography:

Born in Los Angeles, CA, HIPOST (pronounced Hi-Post) was
raised in Long Beach, CA until his family moved to Culver
City, CA.As a 4th grade music student, HIPOST
realized his love of and talent for music. For two
years HIPOST was a 1st chair cellist for the Long Beach Middle School All
District Orchestra. It was at that time HIPOST first envisioned himself as a
future musical force to be ‘reckoned’ with.
After graduation from Culver City High School in 1996 and subsequent to
graduation from the Lee Strasburg School of Performing Arts, where he
studied music composition and acting, HIPOST soon formed his first group
known as“PI-DA-DE” (pee-da-day) with his best friend; a group of three rappers
and a vocalist. The group soon thereafter captured the attention of recording giant
EMI and inked a deal in 1998, But before the ink dried the deal went sour due to label
complications.

Later going solo HIPOST was picked up by well renowned label “RUFF RYDERS” records, but while the project was still in the works the label began going through financial turbulence putting HIPOST back on a mission once again.

Now solo with his first album completed “Gift of Gabb”, which he is
currently promoting nationally thru the Cali’R
Music Group with features from (lil wayne, jagged edge and more).

He has toured extensively as the opening act for
E-40,Too Short, Juvenile, and The Clipse
just to name a few. This seasoned ‘class act’ artist is
definitely ready for main stream exposure.

How did he get the name HIPOST?

His high schoolclassmates gave him the nickname because he
developed a high class taste for preppy clothes,
attending polo matches and symphony orchestra
performances (his first love being the cello).

Due to the void of positive imagery in the industry, setting
and maintaining a positive image is paramount to
HIPOST for the longevity and preservation of
Hip-Hop for future generations to come. He not
only appeals to the hip hop generation, but his
debonair, sultry form of rapping has captured the
hearts of the ‘seasoned’ generations alike.

Some travel low, but this man is definitely
“HIPOST.”
Listen for HIPOST debut hit single “ABOUT TO GET HOT”.
