Chip dropped his latest project Power Up last Friday. This a project filled with eight tracks and the bulk of the project is mostly grime based. When he dropped Believe & Achieve earlier this year many fans expected that EP itself would be grime based considering it was his comeback.
This year itself has been one in which Chip has shown his lyrical ability and is someone not to be messed with. He has also still shown his versatility and has proven why he is one of the best rappers in this country.
The project starts off with Fire In My Studio, Chip performed this on Charlie Sloth’s Fire In The Booth and within the first line of the song record he dissed the host. Following from that the rapper address issues like how corrupt the industry is, the “agents” and more. The moment however which captured the whole scene was Red Bull’s Culture Clash in which Ice Kid emerged from the shadows. Chip then dropped a song with Ice Kid and had many people pleased to see the duo performing together in what seemed like the first time since their 2007 Westwood freestyle. The two records that followed that up, Style Dat and Power Up were highlights of mine on the project. Chip went back to his Caribbean roots and dropped another bashment banger for us, Power Up which followed was just straight bars on up tempo grime beat. Following My One’s, the project closes off with straight bars over a hard hitting grime beat.
Overall this is an great project and we’re only ¾ of the way through the year and it just adds to his buzz. You can see it rising with the chart positions on the iTunes charts every time he drops an project and you can just see it constantly rising, which as a fan is great to see.
