A few weeks ago on the Q train some kids were talking about rappers they like when one of them started going on and on about some dude named Chip Tha Ripper being the "next shit." Sounded dubious, but The FADER editors keep our ear to the streets and it turns out dude is actually pretty awesome. He's from Cleveland, a city which he runs apparently, has a weird, halting, raspy voice and jokes for days. We're putting up a couple sample tracks from the tape, but by all means listen to the whole thing.
"Gun Go Bang"
"Supa Swag Man" feat. Big Duke
