[Chip Tha Ripper]
Its a new week, and with that comes new releases. One release I've been particularly looking forward to is the new mixtape by Chip Tha Ripper, and it's finally here! The mixtape features twenty two new songs from the Ohio artist, with guest appearnces from artists such as Kid Cudi, Wale and Bun B. Whats the tracklist like? well, here's an image of it so I don't have to type that out.
Tell Ya Friends is definitely nothing we haven't seen from Chip before, which isn't saying anything negative. Tell Ya Friends really kicks off with "Passin Out Money", and ego booster track with a catchy hook that would seemingly set the tone for the rest of the album if this wasn't a mixtape. I was particularly impressed with "Soothing", "Out Here" and "Ride 4 you" featuring Kid Cudi. This mixtape is hopefully going to set the tone for Chips next album, and if so I'm really looking forward to it.
When looking at a mixtape you can't take the same approach you'd normally take for a full album release. Each track in this mixtape is it's own entity and needs to be singled out and looked at that way. Overall, while some tracks were hit and miss, I had a good time listening and would definitely recommend to any hip-hop fan.
