Theophilus London is an American rapper from Brooklyn, New York City. His debut EP Lovers Holiday, released on Warner Bros. Records on February 7, 2011, features TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek, Sara Quin from Tegan and Sara, Glasser, and Solange Knowles. His full-length debut album Timez Are Weird These Days, mixed by noted producer Dan Carey, was released by Warner Brothers on July 19, 2011. According to critics, London’s “genre-bending approach draws from a range of styles, from soul-pop and post-punk to electro and contemporary R&B,” citing influences that include Michael Jackson and Prince as well as Kraftwerk and the Smiths.”
Charles Jawanzaa Worth (born October 20, 1986), better known by his stage name King Chip (formerly known as Chip tha Ripper), is an American hip hop recording artist from Cleveland, Ohio. On August 9, 2012, the rapper announced a name change, from Chip tha Ripper to King Chip. He also revealed he signed a deal with talent agency Creative Artists Agency (CAA). Defending his decision for the name change of his moniker he tweeted: “I am King Chip. Actually born in the ghetto slums of east Cleveland, Ohio. Rest in Peace my mentor & former King Hawk. His death made me….” Continuing later, “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.” His first credit under the new stage name was his role as a featured artist on longtime friend and collaborator Kid Cudi’s song “Just What I Am”, taken from Cudi’s third studio album Indicud (2012).
