Chip hasn’t always been the most modest artist and now that he’s been signed to Grand Hustle in America by T.I, his
arrogance confidence knows no bounds.
Speaking to MTV about his move to the States he claimed that if anyone can make UK urban music a success in the US, it is him:
It got to a point where people in the UK felt like if there was someone over there that could help bridge the gap between the cultures in the Urban music over here and in the UK, it’s me. Tip was rockin’ with what I was doing and we just linked up.
We would love to know who these ‘people in the UK’ he’s referring to are.
As if that wasn’t enough boasting, the Tottenham rapper also believes that he has outgrown the UK music scene:
I’m 21 now. I’m pretty much, I wouldn’t say as big as I can be in the UK, but we kind of hit a glass ceiling. I got signed when I was 17. I had a platinum album, previous number one singles, Top 10 hits, countless Top 10 features. The biggest hit I had in the UK was a song called ‘Champion’ featuring Chris Brown.
It’s good to see Chip doing well overseas and there is no denying that the deal with Grand Hustle is a huge achievement, but we think someone needs to go and deflate his head a bit otherwise those snapbacks aren’t going to fit him anymore and this may end up happening…
