MP3: Ripp Flamez – “Break The Bank” (Prod. by Mitch Mula)
DJ Steph Floss Drops an Exclusive Banger from Ohio’s “Best New Artist”
Cleveland rising star and Ohio Hip-Hop’s best new artist Ripp Flamez returns this week with “Break The Bank,” a minor key banger anchored by Ripp’s facility for melody and expert hook craftsmanship. Released today on the compilation #IFeelLikeClue tape curated by Cleveland Cavaliers in-house DJ Steph Floss, “Break The Bank” is the latest anthem to drop in the wake of DayOne Forever, Ripp’s latest album, released in July. Produced by Mitch Mula, “Break the Bank” follows videos for DayOne Forever highlights “Forever,” premiered by VIBE, and “Lebron Flamez,“ recently added to Spotify’s Most Necessary Playlist, which was filmed during the Cavaliers’ championship parade.
Ripp Flamez is Cleveland’s formidable entry into the Bryson Tiller/PartyNextDoor school of Rap&B, earning over 270,000 Soundcloud plays on single “Wavez.” Leading up to the release of DayOne Forever, the Wave God dropped “Your Way,” a romantic, for-the-ladies ballad with twinkling piano, plaintive electric guitar, and finger snaps via G Styles. “Your Way” followed The FADER‘s premiere of the menacing and dramatic “Shine Light,” as well as the “LeBron Flamez” single, which debuted via Complex. “Some artists may have content and substance and others may just have melodies, rhythm, and good production,” Ripp Flamez says. “I have both, along with a unique voice and an organic fan base.”

Ripp Flamez Background:
Born in the Garden Valley Projects, one of Cleveland’s roughest areas, Ripp Flamez found himself alone after his father died and his brother got locked up. Flamez channels his struggle and brings his experience to life through his rhymes. “There’s a lot of different talent in the city with a lot of genuine support,” explains Ripp Flamez. “I found my sound in the midst of all that; so did Kid Cudi and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, two of the artists I look up to most… It’s a tough city and you have to earn your support, you have to show what you really about.” Named “Best New Artist” at the 2015 Ohio Hip-Hop Awards, Ripp Flamez released DayOne Forever in July 2016, garnering acclaim, with highlight track “Lebron Flamez” earning a spot on Spotify‘s Most Necessary playlist.
