San Francisco emcee, Hopie, has been a fixture in the underground hip hop scene since her first release, "The Diamond Dame", in 2008, which immediately earned her placement in URB’s Next 1000. After her first release, she set aside music to get her law degree from U.C. Hastings, emerging intermittently to release several music videos, create a T-shirt line with popular streetwear brand, Adapt, and perform at Guerilla Union's Paid Dues 2010. In 2011, Hopie returned to the music scene with two independent albums: "Dulce Vita" (February 2011) and "Raw Gems" (September 2011), both produced by The Diamond Dame producer, 6Fingers (Vallejo, CA). Hopie has collaborated with some of the most exciting names in underground hip hop, including MURS, Exile Radio, LuckyIAm, Psalm One, Chuuwee, and Bambu, and has been mentored by and worked closely with Del the Funky Homosapien. Hopie is currently in the studio working on her fourth project, "Sugar Water", slated for release in Spring 2013.
