Teen rapper Chipmunk skyrocketed with 2007 mixtape League of My Own. Now known as Chip, via several years of pop chart success, the grime MC is reclaiming the helm of the scene’s DIY ethos. With cutting diss tracks about certain peers, the album largely finds Chip walking the walk. The strength of his bars and delivery is impressive, but with rich, varied production that encompasses bashment (Snap Snap), wavy R&B (Hit Me Up) and even drill (Honestly), along with far-ranging features (Wiley, Giggs, Ghetts and more), this is as much a statement of intent as an assured retrospective of what he’s already achieved.
