Kid Cudi Speaks Highly of Chip Tha Ripper... Also, talks about a "duo", new label, ect.


I have read these two interviews and seen a video interview on facebook where he mentions his NEW LABEL backed by G.O.O.D. Music called "Dream On" and he mentions "signing some artists."

In Kid Cudi's two most recent interviews, he mentions Chip & speaks very highly of him and includes him in his "movement."

On his own blog, he says...

"ANDDDDDD THE BIGGEST NEWS OF ALL

AFTER THE RELEASE OF MY DEBUT ALBUM THIS SUMMER, ILL BE DOIN A COLLAB ALBUM WITH MY HOMEBOY CHIP THE RIPPER, IN WHICH WE FORM THE DUO "THE ALMIGHTY GLORYUS" (THATS HOW WERE SPELLIN IT SO STEP OFF SPELL CHECK)….DOPE NAME RITE? ON MY ALBUM ILL INCLUDE OUR FIRST SINGLE FROM OUR ALBUM WHICH WE HAVNT EVEN STARTED WORKIN ON LOL BUT IM JUS EXCITED ABOUT THE PROJECT…."

Then on The Smoking Section, he mentions...

TSS: Even with LeBron around, how is Cleveland down right now?

KiD CuDi: Just financially, just how things are. We're in a recession and Cleveland already had the highest poverty rate the last couple of years in the entire nation. So, I really feel like people need something more uplifting.

TSS: It's clear…

KiD CuDi: Oh, my man Chip The Ripper, too. He's next out of Cleveland for sure. He's pretty much part of my movement. We're gonna do an album together after my first album. We're still working on a name for our group, but it's gonna be a duo—me and him. We might even put out a mixtape first, show people what we all about and then do a full-length album. But I'm definitely trying to let people know about Chip because I personally… I know for a fact—this is a fact—that Chip The Ripper will be a face in Hip-Hop that everyone will remember for years and years. I know that he's gonna be one of those greats. One of those legends in the game.

TSS: Why do you say that?

KiD CuDi: Because lyrically, I haven't heard anything like it. He's just so dope at what he does.

TSS: For someone like myself unfamiliar with Chip, who would you compare him to?

KiD CuDi: Well, I don't like comparing motherfuckers, but he's in a league of his own. Even if I had to, I couldn't compare him next to anybody. I only fuck with niggas like that. But his voice is very reminiscent of Rick Ross/8Ball. His tone is like a combination of those dudes, but his flows are so much wittier. Don't put that I said Chip The Ripper is better than Rick Ross (Laughs).
