The first Midwest MusicChallenge winner is fully driven by love and desire to further the growth of hip-hop culture through community. With acclaim and attention continuing to find him, HighTyde realizes he is but a piece of a much larger picture.
"The last two times I felt super dope was February of 2014 after winning the first ever Midwest Music Challenge. After the surrealism wore off, it was less about being 'dope' and more of 'finally feeling respected by my peers' - which is all I ever wanted to be from the beginning.
I write "good"!
