    20 Tweets From Chip Tha Ripper (And His Fans) Against <em>XXL</em>
    <a href="http://chiptharipper.com/">Chip Tha Ripper</a>'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 <em>XXL</em> excluded the Cleveland MC on its annual list of top independent artists on Wednesday (Independence Day), the rapper took his displeasure to <a href="http://twitter.com/#!/Chip216/">Twitter</a>. Posting a series of greater-than signs comparing <em>XXL</em> 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 <em>XXL</em> were equally amused, so here's a list of our favorite tweets and re-tweets from Chip Tha Ripper and his fans. —<em>XXL Staff</em> (<a href="http://twitter.com/#!/XXL/">@XXL</a>)

  • @MegaTronDon

    You’re thinking of when Chip was excluded from the freshman list. This is a whole ‘nother article. Maybe if you read, you would have noticed:

    “So when XXL excluded the Cleveland MC on its annual list of top independent artists on Wednesday (Independence Day)…”

    On some real XXL, you guys are so wack its unreal, this artist is ill, he is bringing us back to real music, not just real hiphop, real music, but you so-sign and sponsor these wack artist. This magazine has to be run by jealous little 10 year old girls, with no idea about HipHop or music, you talking about hiphop or are you some kind of Chanel E type magazine. I will never ever ever buy a XXL magazine, EVER, and its not just Chip, you guys have done this to other great artist, but promoted the wackest of the wack, yall dont know hiphop.
