For someone so young, Chip (formerly Chipmunk) AKA Jamaal Fyffe has achieved a lot. In 2008 he received a MOBO for Best Newcomer, and won Best Hip-Hop Act at the 2009 MOBOs, overcoming US megastars such as Jay-Z, Kanye West and Eminem. He has also received an Urban Music Award for Best Newcomer, and a nomination for Best Rapper at the American BET Awards, not to mention having racked up millions of plays across his MySpace and YouTube channels - and all before he'd even finished school.
When his A-level exams were out of the way Chip went on to have chart-topping success with a number 1 single 'Oopsy Daisy' and top 5 album, ‘I Am Chipmunk’. His next release, 'Look For Me' was also a top 10 hit.
In 2010 Chip released 'Until You Were Gone' in April, 'I Am Chipmunk - Platinum Edition' in May, followed by his 13-date Shine Tour in June – plus he also made his second series of Chip TV. In 2010 he released his second album ‘Transition’, and he kicked off 2012 by changing his name to Chip.
In February 2012 Chip uploaded his own freestyle of Tyga's Rack City to YouTube - receiving over 70,000 views and 1,000 likes within just two days!
