King Chip - 44108 [Mixtape] | Stream/ Download

king chip 44108-cover
King Chip - the artist formally known as Chip Tha Ripper - returns today with his latest project in the form of 44108.

44108 is a much darker experience to anything we've heard from Chip in recent years and as the title suggests, we hear a lot of retrospective thoughts on his hometown and the general journey to the present day.

"Being out in Los Angeles, it really let me know how much I love where I’m from," he said. "I just wanted to write about it away from home, that way I can really miss things that I took for granted. It’s for me as well as the people. It’s kind of like my journal."

44108 serves as a prelude to his upcoming EP Clevelafornia that in turn acts as a prelude to his debut LP Charles Worth. There have been plenty of previews, preludes and premier moments in Chip's career so far but he now looks to capitalise on the lot with the Charles Worth release.

If like me you can't quite wait that long, make sure you check out the stream below and download.

You take the clothes off my back / And I let you / You steal the food right out my mouth / And I watch you eat it / I still can’t know why / Why our love is so much / Ohhh / You curse my name / In spite to put me to shame / Air all my laundry in the streets / Dirty or clean / Give it up for lame / But I still don’t know why / Why I love it so much / Yeah / And Baby / It’s amazing I’m in this maze with you / I just can’t crack ya code / One day you screaming you love me loud / The next day you’re so cold / One day you here / One day you there / One day you care / You’re so unfair / Sippin’ from the cup / Till it runneth over / Holy Grail

Blue told me to remind you _____ / _____ that _____ y’all talk about / I’m in the _____ / Caught up in all these lights and cameras /But look what that _____ did to Hammer / _____ I like it / The bright lights is enticing / But look what it did to Tyson / All that money in one night / 30 mil for one fight / But soon as all that money blows / All the pigeons take flight / _____ the fame / Keep cheating on me / What I do / I took her back / Fool me twice / That’s my bad / I can’t even blame her for that / Enough to make me want to _____ / Momma please just get my bail / I know / Nobody to blame / Kurt Cobain / I did it to myself

And we all just / Entertainers / And we’re stupid / And contagious (2x)

And Baby / It’s amazing I’m in this maze with you / I just can’t crack ya code / One day you screaming you love me loud / The next day you’re so cold / One day you here / One day you there / One day you care / You’re so unfair / Sippin’ from your cup / Till it runneth over / Holy Grail

Now I got tattoos on my body / Psycho _____ in my lobby / I got haters in the paper / Photo-shoots with paparazzi / Can’t even take my daughter for a walk / See them by the corner store / I feel cornered off / Enough is enough / I’m calling this off / Who the _____ I’m kidding though / I’m getting _____ / Sitting low / Sliding by / In that big body / Curtains all in my window / This fame hurt / But this chain works / I think back / You asked the same person / If this is all you had to deal with / _____ deal with / It, this _____ ain’t work / This light work / Camera snapping my eyes hurt / _____ dying back where I was birthed / _____ your iris and IRS / Get the _____ up off your high horse / You got the _____ that _____ / Will die for / Dry yours / Why you mad / Take that good with the bad / Don’t throw that baby out with that bath water / You’re still alive /Still that _____…_____ / You survived / You still getting bigger _____ / Living the life / Vanilla wafers / In a villa / Illest _____ alive / Michael Jackson Thriller
