chip-tha-ripper-17

Chip Tha Ripper's DYI rap movement has been steadily growing over the past few years. The solid fan base he's garnered through his tours, Kid Cudi collaboration, and online presence have made him one of the more recognized independent artists in the game. So when XXL excluded the Cleveland MC on its annual list of top independent artists on Wednesday (Independence Day), the rapper took his displeasure to Twitter. Posting a series of greater-than signs comparing XXL against its rival publications, and belittling it against dull activities ("watching paint dry"), Chip and his fans were able to get a good laugh out of the situation. The staff at XXL were equally amused, so here's a list of our favorite tweets and re-tweets from Chip Tha Ripper and his fans. —XXL Staff (@XXL)
