About Chipmunk

Armed with magnetic musical charisma and a talent for spitting hard and dizzying bars, British MC Chip came up as one of the most dynamic young rappers in the country’s storied early-21st-century grime scene. Born Jahmaal Noel Fyffe in 1990, he was raised in Tottenham, North London, and started working on his own music at just 13 years old after being inspired by rappers like Dizzee Rascal and Wiley, the latter adopting the young rapper as his mentee. After years of grime mixtapes, Chip—now officially an adult—shifted away from the genre and into pop-leaning hip-hop, releasing his debut full-length, 2009’s I Am Chipmunk, with tracks like the piano-driven Top 40 hit “Oopsy Daisy.” He continued down a similar road with 2011’s Transition, laced with famous features and more radio-focused fare like the triumphant “Champion.” Since 2017’s League of My Own II, Chip has left his sonic options wide open but moved back toward grime with songs like 2018’s breakneck “Right Now.”
