RIP SLYME is a Japanese hip hop group. The group was formed in 1993 by rappers RYO-Z, ILMARI, PES and former members DJ SHOGI and DJ Shige. In 1995, the group had their debut with the mini-album "Lip's Rhyme", and by 1996 both DJs had left the group. Only in 1997 they would find a new DJ in DJ Fumiya, which joined the unit, as well as rapper SU, after what started as a collaboration in the track "Searching" from their first album, "Talkin' Cheap", released in 1998. In 1999 they took part in Dragon Ash's Total Communication event.
