Is there any link between the term and the anti-Semitic slur "hep"?

hip and opium[edit]

I do not think the association between hip and optium is because it was consumed on a persons hip, it was because opium is made from the hip of the poppy.

vocal percussision[edit]

i didn't add this because i'm not sure if it belongs on this page. in ska music, hep (still meaning hip) is used as a vocal percussion term commonly and is the prefix of a bands and a very well known word among those familiar with the culture of ska. is this information relevant enough to be added?

John Gruen[edit]

John Gruen's Nov. 29, 1964 article titled "The New Bohemia" in the New York Herald Tribune (later turned into a 1966 book) may have also popularized the term "hip" in relation to the new youth coming out of the beat generation who would be known as "hippies" only a year later. For some reason Michael Doyle (ISBN 0231113722) reads "hip" as "hippie", but it may just be figurative language on his part. As Doyle was reviewing Gruen's original article and not his book, I'm trying to get a hold of it to see where the error was madel Timothy Miller concurs - the book does not speak of hippies. —Viriditas | Talk 01:32, 27 January 2008 (UTC)
