Often overlooked, but very relevant, is the Cleveland hip hop scene. Already, the area has produced two stars, Kid Cudi and Machine Gun Kelly. Despite the two having issues over the “raging” term, the two have helped put Cleveland on the map. Another rising figure on the Cleveland hip hop scene is Chip Tha Ripper.
Recently, Chip Tha Ripper changed his name to King Chip. However, this has not changed the overall person he is. Before the name change, Chip Tha Ripper maintained a close relationship with Kid Cudi. The two have collaborated for a number of mixtape tracks and singles, building a close relationship.
Vlad TV recently spoke with King Chip and their recent conversation was about his relationship with Kid Cudi. While those who follow both rappers know they are close, it is closer than some maybe realized. King Chip, who does not have a biological brother, said Kid Cudi is like the brother he never had.
