In Flipsyde’s never-ending quest to be more than just music, Piper, who is also an Actor and Screenwriter, paid his own way through a Bay Area police academy in
2010. Seven months later he had graduated at the top and found himself giving the commencement speech. Shortly thereafter, Piper penned a one-man-play entitled Cops & Robbers in which he plays twelve different characters. Piper describes Cops and Robbers as, “A revolutionary look at the relationship between Law Enforcement, the Media and the Black community.”
"It’s time to bring back individuality to this music—while I'm proud of the South's success, I don't think it always reflects many of the true elements of Southern living."
The NOLA emcee formed close bonds with fellow emcees and established the underground hip-hop and mixtape crew Eupham. Through original elements of hip-hop culture – social awareness, fellowship, cunning lyrical style, and flow friendly production – Eupham represents the principle that hip-hop is more than music, it’s art.
