When are people going to stop sleeping on Chip Tha Ripper? Or, better yet, when are people going to stop writing him off as Kid Cudi’s more-weeded rapper buddy? Dude’s dropped several notable free releases, particularly last year’s Gift Raps, and it’s sounding like his new effort, Tell Ya Friends, is going to be even better.
At least, that’s what the latest leak, “Out Here,” leads to me believe. It’s one of his darkest tracks to date, thanks in part to Lex Luger’s dark, but R&B-ish, production and Chip’s Bone Thugs-referencing inflection. Yeah, in short, this is dope, and let’s all make a pact to keep him Tha Ripper on our radar. Stream the track below.
