Chipmunk – For The Fun Of It Mixtape

11 Jan

Chipmunk Just For The Fun Of It Cover

Grime MC turned ‘pop star’, Chipmunk  has released a mixtape named For The Fun Of It, presumably for that reason. Chip has come under a lot of fire lately from hardcore grime fans (just like Tinchy Stryder, Wiley and Dizzee Rascal) who believe that getting signed and gaining mainstream popularity has ‘watered down his content’.

For The Fun Of It follows Chipmunk’s F64 (a freestyle) on SBTV where he spoke out to his critics. I guess that this mixtape can only be described as an attempt to further silence sceptics and show them that he hasn’t forgotten his roots!

As far as I’m concerned, it’s inevitable that once UK urban artists get signed they have to ‘dilute’ their sound in order to appeal to a wider market. It’s just fact. The demographic that buy their records, the majority of whom live outside London, can’t relate to the ‘mean streets’ of Hackney, Peckham or Brixton so artists (and their record companies) have to give them something they can buy into. But I do think that artists like Chip, who probably want to maintain some credibility with the ‘urban’ crowd should simply do what the Americans do and put out ‘undiluted’ mixtapes like this, so good on you Chip!
