Toppa Top 10: Ten Trini Rappers Besides Nicki Minaj

April 3, 2012

8. Chip Fu


As a member of the lighthearted early ’90s rap trio Fu-Schnickens (best known for ’92’s “La Schmoove,” featuring fellow Trini Phife Dawg) Chip Fu brought forth a dancehall-influenced, high-speed chatting style that had most people assuming the half-Trini, half-Bajan MC was Jamaican. After years away from hip-hop, the East Flatbush, Brooklyn native has recently returned as a solo act, dropping straight-up dancehall tracks like “Love Mi Sensi.”
