MC Chipmunk challenges critics

MC Chipmunk has challenged anyone who has criticised him for being too commercial to take him on in a rap battle.
Great deals on musical instruments

MC Chipmunk has challenged his critics to take him on in a rap battle.

The UK artist - whose song 'Oopsy Daisy' was a UK number one single last year - said he doesn't listen to other rappers claims he has 'sold out' for gaining commercial success, because he gets respect from his peers.

He said: "The people that criticise me are most probably not even music buyers. I couldn't care less what those people say, because really, come and stand next to me if you're an MC and you have something to say.

"Let's press play on a beat, bars and we will see. Why do I need to even care? I managed to put myself in a situation where I am respected in the world of selling music, you know? It's not easy. Making music is one thing, being able to sell units is another."

Chipmunk also reminded he is one of the people that has paved the way for other young artists in the UK's presently burgeoning scene.

He added to MTV UK: "I don't know if people are complacent with being broke and famous, but that's not a nice combination.

"You know when me and Ice Kid went on Westwood, that is what opened the doors for people to go on there and get Westwood to even want to hear people."

It is not clear which rappers Chipmunk was referring to in his statements, although he has previously had an argument with grime artist Wiley on twitter.
