Today, Cleveland rapper Chip Tha Ripper’s Tell Ya Friends mixtape dropped, and it's a strong release overall. An easy standout, though, is the Lex Luger-produced "Out Here," which proves to be another perfect track in the line of smoked-out "Koolin' It"-style beats that buck the "B.M.F." style Luger is known for. With a steadily undulating melody and immediacy that most kush-inspired producers could only dream of, "Out Here" should prove to be a key track in both Chip and Lex's catalogs.
