SPOTLIGHT on Transit
Transit is a hip-hop artist who moved to Calgary from Victoria in 2007. Since arriving in Calgary, Transit has wasted no time making himself a local hero. His latest album “22” which was released November of 2011 was the first album from a Calgary rapper to reach Top 10 on the iTunes hip-hop charts. Transit has gained the respect from notable artists such as Jann Arden, Madchild, and Kyprios, who will be collaborating with Transit in the near future.
However, his popularity extends past the music industry, as seen by his recent nomination to be Calgary’s first ever Poet Laureate.
