In 2008, the MC received a MOBO award for Best Newcomer, an Urban Music Award for Best Newcomer, and a nomination for Best Rapper at the American BET Awards, not to mention having racked up millions of plays across his MySpace and Youtube channels.
He also won Best Hip-Hop Act at the 2009 MOBOs, overcoming US superstars such as Kanye West and Eminem.
However, he's not new to the scene.
For at the age of 15 Chip started producing and self-releasing mix tapes, buying CDs in bulk and selling them to his mates at school.
For his final mix tape, League Of My Own, he came together with Alwayz Recordings, and together they went on to release the much-talked about single Chip Diddy Chip, reaching number 21 in the UK charts.
More recently he's been working and touring with N-Dubz and featured on their MOBO-winning album Uncle B.
He also put his MC talents to DJ Ironik's top five single Tiny Dancer.
His debut album I Am Chipmunk is released tomorrow (Monday).
