Kipp Stone Takes Us to His Hometown in “Cult Classic” Video
Inspired by cult films and albums, East Cleveland's own Kipp Stone drops the video for his "Cult Classic." Taking viewers back to his hood, Kipp sips on a 40 while a woman sits on his lap, kicks it with his crew and shows the humble side of the rap lifestyle --there are no big chains or bands as Stone proudly raps "fuck the fame."
"The idea behind the 'Cult Classic' video was to show where I'm from, East Cleveland, Ohio," the rapper told The FADER. "We wanted the video to look rugged and somewhat nostalgiv. You really don't see people drinking 40's in videos anymore, so that, along with using an old television added to the vibe I think."
XXL caught up with Kipp for "The Break" and the rapper spoke on what the future holds for his music and career. "I would want to be the next big cult classic," he said. "When you think of a cult classic they don’t really gain a lot of commercial success or nothing like that. But everybody knows this is it, this is the guy. When you’re watching certain movies like Pulp Fiction… It’s not like a huge movie but when you mention a favorite movie you’re going to mention it. Also, I want to prove that you don’t have to be a snake to get success. I have a lot further to go but I got to where I’m at now by staying true to the people around me and staying true to what I believe. I think that’s huge."
