Biography

Chipmunk (born Jahmaal Noel Ffyfe, 26.11.1990)
Chipmunk is an English rapper, and was given his stage name by a friend, as a comment on his front teeth. Originally, it was just a nickname but Jahmaal adopted it for his music career when the friend that gave him the nickname was killed. He also sometimes uses the name Mr. Munk.

Chipmunk is signed to Columbia Records, a subsidiary of Sony Music UK.

At the 2008 MOBO Awards, Chipmunk landed the 'Best UK Newcomer' award and also won Best Hip-Hop Act at the same awards the following year. It was at these 2009 awards that he beat international start such as Jay-Z, Eminem and Kanye West to the title.

Music Releases & History: Chipmunk's debut CD release was entitled 'League of My Own' and was released on the Alwayz Recording label. Though Alwayz Recording's most prominent artist is Chipmunk, they have also worked with Griminal, Wretch 32, Shutta, Cyko Logic and Lethal Kidd, with an emphasis on grime and urban music.

Chipumk's popular 'Diamond Rings' single was also released on Alwayz Recording. In 2009, Jive / Columbia released the 'Oopsy Daisy' single, before Warner Music Sweden took up 'Tiny Dancer (Hold Me Closer)'.

Chipmunk's biggest single to date, 'Until You Were Gone', featuring Esmee Denters, was released in 2010 and helped boost Chipmunk's public profile. Chipmunk's album I am Chipmunk was released in May 2010. The album featured performances from the likes of Tinchy Stryder, N-Dubz and Loick Essien.

Chipmunk has also contributed to a lot of recordings for other artists since 2007. In 2007, he appeared on Wiley's 'No Qualms' EP, released on Big Dada Recordings. Big Dada is also home to Speech Debelle and Roots Manuva. He also worked extensively with Tinchy Stryder and Jammer, as well as DJ Ironik and appears on Basement Jaxx's album Scars.

Live Performance: In summer 2010, Chipmunk embarked on a headline tour, with support from Aggro Santos, Bashy and Candyrock. Chipmunk endorses Adidas Top 10 Lows trainers, which he wears on tour. Earlier in 2010, Chipmunk was selected to play at the Radio 1 Big Weekend festival in Bangor, along with Tempa T and Dizzee Rascal.
