Chip Tha Ripper Signs With CAA; Changes Names To King Chip


(AllHipHop News) Cleveland native and Kid Cudi protege Chip Tha Ripper has officially signed with one of Hollywood’s top talent agencies, Creative Artists Agency (CAA), and changed his name to King Chip.

Chip tweeted, “Had to make it official and call the CAA my home – special thank you to Cara Lewis,@cherylpags & everyone else at the CAA. #TEAMCARA #CAA.”

Chip will join a home that also includes Kanye West who signed with the agency in July.

In addition to his signing, Chip also announced his name change: “There has never been any rap artist to get as much paper as me and or sell as many units as me without ever having a company backing. I am King Chip. Actually born in the ghetto slums of east Cleveland, Ohio.”

“Rest in Peace my mentor & former King Hawk,” he continued. “His death made me….King Chip. My birth name is Charles Jawanzaa Worth. Jawanzaa is Swahili and it means ‘great leader and great warrior’. Look it up. I am King Chip,” he added.

King Chip’s last project was his January-released Tell Ya Friends mixtape. He was most recently featured on “Busta Ass N*ggas” with Bun B from Hit-Boy’s HITstory mixtape which dropped on Tuesday (August 7).

Chip is currently at work on his debut album, Charles Worth, as well as a collaborative project with Kid Cudi that is rumored to be titled The Almighty GloryUS.
