Introducing Honey The Hippie to the A&R Report. Honey The Hippie, born in Detroit, raised in Central Florida, and currently residing in Houston, TX, came about her stage name from the meaning of her birth name Oyinkansola, meaning “sweet like honey” in Yoruba. After winning a handful of national poetry completions since the age of 12, she decided to take her poetry writing to the next level. At 16 years old, she began writing raps to popular instrumentals, with no intentions of sharing these lyrics with anyone.
In 2011, she decided to share these lyrics with the online world when she recorded her first freestyle on Youtube. 300000 views later, this 18 year old artist proved to be a rare breed of female lyricists. Her anticipated mixtape entitled Peace of Mind, debuted on the “Most Popular Mixtapes” worldwide on Datpiff in June 2013. She also just released her debut music video “Psychedelic”, which caught the attention of dozens of music blogs. Honey is currently pushing her debut mixtape, Peace of Mind.
