Video: Chippy Nonstop – “Pimpin Season”
MTVHive Premieres New Video For “Pimpin Season,” #finallyverified EP Available For Download Now
Critical Praise for Chippy Nonstop:
“Upon first listen, it might be easy to dismiss the internet-obsessed Nanda’s debut offering #GLOBALSCHOOLOFTWERK as frivolous hipster party rap. Upon closer inspection idiosyncracies emerge: seething Hindi rhymes, crunchy dance beats, and a hyphy-inspired energy that help underscore Nanda’s unusual inspirations.” – FLAUNT Magazine
“She’s provocative, demanding of attention, while maintaining the casual-fun style of your old neighborhood crew. You can’t help but follow her bopping head and twerking booty for fear you might blink and miss the next step.” – San Francisco Bay Guardian
The Oakland-based rapper Chippy Nonstop is incredibly easy to like and a surefire good time, but she’s far more than a pretty party girl with a great Twitter. She has great stamina and an ear for interesting sounds you can also bounce your butt to.– Interview Magazine
Last week Bay Area queen of all things twerk Chippy Nonstop released her 5-track EP #finallyverified, and today MTVHive premiered her latest visual for the song “Pimpin Season.” The video, directed by Jordan Levine and produced by Rafael Francisco of Francisco Productions and 11D Media, finds Chippy and her posse of girls in short shorts cruising the streets in a classic Mustang convertible as she collects cash from ladies on the stroll. References to the world’s oldest profession, however, are all tongue-in-cheek, Chippy insists, “The song is just about when it gets hot out and it’s summer time, everyone is just down to have a fun with each other, if you know what I mean. It’s not actually about pimpin’ bitches.”
While “Pimpin Season” may not be literal, Chippy’s stylistic, lyrical and visual cues throughout the track and video are an intentional nod to hip hop culture in her home base. “Some of the word selection and the beat are very inspired by the Bay Area. I give a shout out to Too $hort because he’s the main mack of the Bay…after all, he is ‘Shorty the Pimp.'” Chippy is currently promoting the new EP and most recently performed at the Red Bull Sound Select show at DROM in New York City.
