Transit (Hip-Hop)

Transit is an indie hip hop artist who moved to Calgary from Victoria a few years ago to pursue an education and to take his music to the nextlevel in the rapidly expanding indie community of Calgary. Since arriving in Calgary, Transit has wasted no time making himself a householdname. In the short amount of time Transit has spent on the Calgary scene he has created a movement of people who are sick of Calgary beinglabelled as strictly a "Country Music city..

Transit is an indie hip hop artist who moved to Calgary from Victoria a few years ago to pursue an education and to take his music to the nextlevel in the rapidly expanding indie community of Calgary. Since arriving in Calgary, Transit has wasted no time making himself a householdname. In the short amount of time Transit has spent on the Calgary scene he has created a movement of people who are sick of Calgary beinglabelled as strictly a "Country Music city..

"My fan base consists primarily of kids who don't usually listen to rap. We usually perform at indie shows because those kids are still thirsty forreal music, thirsty for substance. There's a subculture in Calgary emerging that really wants to build up the scene here, and I feel as though thescene is more alive here than ever. We're trying to change the way people view Hip Hop, we're trying to put Calgary on the map for that..

This past year, Transit and long time collaborator Dave Wallace created a video titled "Creating a hit: The 8 Hour Challenge." In the video,Transit and Dave film themselves creating a top 40 pop song from scratch to prove how easy it is to be "radio friendly." (Watch the 8 hourchallenge here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PRKfj_5Oso). After creating the viral Youtube video, Transit and Dave were approached byKISS star Gene Simmons who was interested in the same sound that Transit and Dave were mocking. Rather than pursuing Gene's invitation toset up a showcase for his record label, Transit decided to stay independent in order to maintain his artistic integrity. « hide
