Southern artist Mr. Sipp, whose name makes us think of Mississippi, which is no coincidence, since he was born there, is someone music fans need to know about! His new single "Going Ham" features cameos by Yo Gotti and Pleasure P. Impressive guest list, right? He also has a song "Ham," featuring Future. There's a bit of a swine motif here!

And key deets about Sipp:
Mr. Sipp's name leaves no doubt where he's from. A native of Bassfield, Mississippi, the 25-year old has been rapping since he was a teenager. A former member of two groups, his talent was recognized early and he enjoyed marginal success opening for award-winning artists Juvenile and the Ying Yang Twins. He now stands alone and is ready to release his first solo mixtape, From Summer Through Da Winter. It was recorded during a time when temperatures in the South were easily tipping into the 100's. He took that energy with him into the booth and brought the heat found on every cut of his lyrical masterpiece. Although his music is hot, he's one of the coldest artists to ever come out of the 601 area code. We agree.
Mr. Sipp describes his flow as "hood hip-hop." His music provides flavor for those who rep the streets and feel good vibes for those who just yearn for music that gets the party started. But Summer Through Da Winter is more than entertainment for people from any walk of life. It's a foretelling of the beginning of a dynasty.
"Summer Thru Da Winter is a metaphor for my career. I'm in the summer of my life right now. I'm young. I'm hustling. I feel invincible, like I can't lose. Yet, I have every intention of making it to winter of my career. That will be years from now when I announce my retirement and I'm recognized as one of the greats in the industry. God-willing, I'll be one of the artists who helped to put Mississippi on the map," predicts Mr. Sipp.
Do you dig Mr. Sipp and his hood brand of hip-hop?
