Being dropped by Jive may end up being the best thing that ever happened to Chipmunk, or Chip as he's now known. A few months later he signed a new deal with Grand Hustle, a label run by US rapper T.I. which is part of Atlantic and home to B.o.B and Iggy Azalea. Despite his new connections he's still involved with the UK scene, having recently done a club tour, appeared in Tulisa's Young video and he posted a new video on SBTV yesterday showing a more tough and angry side. The Oopsy Daisy days are definitely gone! He's now working on a mixtape called London Boy, and it's likely that his chances of a big promotional push in the US will depend on how it's received.
