The Highest Low / Press

"The Bootleg Sessions was in my opinion an instant Chicago underground classic. Snotty Pippen and Just Wise are a duo that is criminally underrated..."

"Never does it lose steam, never does it tire or bore. Just Wise and Snotty Pippen are catalysts for conscious visions, often dealing with the past, back when hip-hop was more a struggle..."

“OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR 'BOOM BAP' from the crew "THE HIGHEST LOW" (out of Chicago/Aurora IL) Directed and Filmed by Ezekiel38 Vocals by: Snotty Pippen and Just Wise Produced by: Maker OFF THE HIGHEST LOW'S NEWEST LP "INSOMNIA" available at www.thehighestlow.bandcamp.com or check them out at www.facebook.com/thehighestlow contact for this channel and zeeker videos @ vertualvertigo@gmail.com”

“Just Wise + Snotty Pippen = The Highest Low. The Chicago duo recently released "Boom Bap" a potent video off their project "Insomnia". Real hiphop here.”

"The album is a great representation of Chicago's indie Hip Hop that I came up on thanks to the Highest Low's blue-collar rhymes and the production from Maker."

“My man Nick Arcade recently put me up on a group out of Illinois called The Highest Low (comprised of members Just Wise and the amazingly named Snotty Pippen). Much like Nick's own group State Champs, The Highest Low have a bit of a 90's era sound to their music. I haven't heard a whole lot from them yet, but what I have heard has been pretty good. They just dropped a new mixtape, Middle Finger Mind State, which is available for free over at their bandcamp page. Below is the best cut from the mixtape, which features a tremendous beat from producer RAM. It's built around a sample that I'm pretty sure Pete Rock flipped for one of his albums with CL Smooth back in the day. If anyone can identify it, drop a note in the comments section. In any event, check out The Highest Low's ode to their hometown:”
