MC / PRODUCER / INFINITE P / BIO
Infinite Potential better known as IP aka I.Peezy has made quite a name for himself in Alberta’s hip-hop scene & abroad. As a part of two legendary hip-hop crews from Calgary (Endangered Species and NWNB) IP helped pioneer a scene that is now seeing the likes of Dragon Fli Empire and Deezuz chart and tour nationally as well.
Introduced to hip-hop in the early 90’s by a classmate who moved from Jamaica to Canada, IP fell in love with the culture of breakdancers, beatboxers, turntablists, emcees and graf writers. Starting off with intricate freestyles, IP later grew as an artist honing his skills in MC battles, entertaining crowds at house parties and performing and recording with recognized Canadian & US MCs like Moka Only, Jeff Spec, Rich Kidd, Lucky I Am, Main Flow etc.
IP is also a great sample based producer who prides himself on creating heavy soundscapes that make your head nod. With over 10 years experience IP guarantees something dope behind the boards for his own songs or other artists he works with. He currently uses an ASR-10 / Maschine and owes a lot of his inspiration to other great producers like: DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Diamond D, The Alchemist, J-Dilla, Nottz, Moka Only, Madlib & The Beatnuts.
IP has toured coast to coast in Canada as both a headliner with his group’s Everybody Soul & NWNB and as an opener for such hip-hop greats like Slum Village, Souls of Mischief, and Swollen Members. IP also toured western Canada with Aceyalone(2008) & Raekwon The Chef(2010) to sold out crowds. In addition to this IP has been featured on Vibe 98.5, charted on various Canadian college stations(earshot) and has showcased at nationally recognized music showcases like New Music West (Vancouver), Under Pressure (Montreal) and Vans Warped Tour (Calgary).
IP also engages youth through hip-hop music & culture. IP has been a part of the community through his work in "Bounce Back" a program invented by Vince Joachim to spread hope, ambition and positive mentorship through hip-hop, photography & video. IP has partnered with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Calgary, Youth Calgary, The Calgary Young Offenders Center & Center For Newcomers encouraging youth & immigrants to be creative & follow their dreams.
