Our Story 

In the autumn of 2017, Kip, Nick Coleman, and Nye Moody embarked on their odyssey into the realm of music industry studies at Loyola University New Orleans. United by their shared fervor for hip-hop, the trio wasted no time in establishing their creative enclave, erecting a makeshift recording studio in Nick’s dorm room (401) and weaving melodic tapestries together as an unnamed collective. Their burgeoning talent swiftly attracted notice, affording them the opportunity to grace the stage at a modest gathering. Faced with the task of christening themselves for the occasion, OFFRIP was conceived.

 

Later, the trio migrated from campus to 15 Cromwell Pl., a weathered white abode nestled on a tranquil street behind the Loyola library. Once the domain of a fraternity, this newfound headquarters became the epicenter of their artistic endeavors. Hosting soirées every other weekend, OFFRIP cultivated a diverse community of both local virtuosos and academic denizens, solidifying their status as a cornerstone of uptown nightlife.

 

Initially enticed by the allure of event coordination, the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic presented OFFRIP with unforeseen tribulations. Compelled to shutter months of scheduled engagements, they pivoted, redirecting their focus to the digital expanse of music. Embracing the nuances of marketing and playlist curation, they commenced offering promotional services to artists in need. Furthermore, OFFRIP delved into music production with the release of their eponymous EP, featuring collaborations with luminaries of the Louisiana scene such as Wakai, JoshSimmons, and Kr3wcial.

 

Upon donning their graduation regalia from Loyola University, the members of OFFRIP dispersed to their respective hometowns, driven by the ambition to carve their niche in Los Angeles. Their trajectory took an unexpected detour when Wakai, seeking guidance for his musical journey, reached out to the collective. Seizing the moment, OFFRIP formally ventured into artist management, unveiling Wakai’s debut opus, "To A Dark Boy," to resounding acclaim.

 

The triumph of "To A Dark Boy" marked a pivotal juncture for OFFRIP, propelling them into the limelight of the music industry. With newfound momentum, they extended a welcome to Quadry and JoshSimmons into their management fold, laying the groundwork for expansion. Cisco Swank joined their ranks, with his inaugural offering, "More Better," and ensuing tour solidifying OFFRIP’s standing in the industry.

 

Beyond artist management, OFFRIP pressed forward, establishing their own distribution network in collaboration with TooLost. Their evolution continued with the inclusion of Luke Titus, a versatile percussionist and vocalist, in their roster. Expanding into new avenues of management, they embraced their first director, JETTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT, and producer, Momo Ward, into the OFFRIP fold.

 

As they ventured into 2024, OFFRIP found themselves at the helm of a burgeoning empire, boasting a diverse cadre of talent spanning various disciplines. Armed with an unwavering dedication to their craft and an indomitable commitment to artistic integrity, OFFRIP set their sights on shaping the future of the music industry.
