According to the hip life grandpa in an interview with Amansan Krakye on Radio Central, one of the biggest achievement of hip life is employment.

“The biggest achievement of hip life is the employment, it has created jobs. Without hip life I don’t know what some of these would have been doing. It brought a lot of employment, from radio, television, it’s affected everything. If hip life didn’t come like Jay Z and the rest won’t come to Ghana. It’s created jobs, today Sarkodie can be on a billboard. It has created a lot of avenues for the young to express themselves”, he disclosed.

Aside from employment, hip life as a music has also become a source of entertainment.
