About Artist: Chip tha Ripper is a Clevland rapper (same as Kid Cudi and the Kickdrums) who has a couple mixtapes out right now and is in the process of working on a ever delayed mixtape called “The Cleaveland Show” which will hopefully vault him toward being signed.
About Song: This song is lighter and more fun that most other Chip the Ripper songs (download his best mixtape below). This track was produced by Remont will be featured on Mick and Terry Urbans upcoming (any day now) De La Soul tribute mixtape. It is, maybe not obviously, a remake of De La Souls’ “Talkin’ Bout Hey Love” (listen here). The song is a nice little track that speaks truth of high school flirtation etc (he talks about the girl he likes seein him around other girls not knowing they were just his friends 1:31).
Favorite Line: “She say I was always a cool nigga, but I ain’t have a chance when I went to school with her. But that was then this is now I’m a pimp in my own mind I can hold down.” (1:26) I just like the rythm of the line with the track.
Other: Chip works a lot with DJ-EV. He has a great mixtape called “Can’t Stop Me” which you can download HERE
