Pip Skid (born Patrick Skene, AKA Wicked Nut) is a Canadian rapper and writer, and a cornerstone of the successful Vancouver based independent hip hop label Peanuts & Corn.[1] Originally hailing from Brandon, Manitoba, Pip is known in underground hip hop circles for his distinctive gravel-throated vocals, as well as his clever writing, and angry delivery.[2]

As a co-founder of landmark Canadian hip hop group Farm Fresh, as well as a member of other famed crews such as Fermented Reptile, Hip Hop Weiners, Taking Care of Business, and Break Bread,[3] Pip has sold thousands of albums while starring on over a dozen albums since 1994, appearing on many more, and touring all over North America.[4] His current album Skid Row peaked at #4[5] on the Canadian Hip Hop charts on May 1, 2010. This album follows in the footsteps of Funny Farm 2 which hit #3[6] on the hip hop charts and Funny Farm which hit #32[7] on the combined charts. His single Alone Again from the Funny Farm album achieved rotation on the national music network Much Music.[8]
