Chip tha Ripper is an American hip hop recording artist from Cleveland, Ohio.
He once did a freestyle rap on the radio, known unofficially as "S.L.A.B. Freestyle". The lyrics "Interior crocodile alligator / I drive a Chevrolet movie theater" from the rap became an internet meme in the early 2000s due to the ridiculousness of the phrase. The song later became a meme on the SiIvaGunner channel, eventually leading to Chip himself becoming a character in The SilvaGunner Christmas Comeback Crisis.
"S.L.A.B. Freestyle" is actually one of many memes from the GiIvaSunner era that was carried over from the Soundclown community. It's an easy song to use in a mashup since, other than the single bar flute section (which can easily be cut out), it has no melodic elements. The first album, GilvaSunner's Highest Quality Video Game Rips: Volume 1, features 8 simple mashups of the song "S.L.A.B. Freestyle".
The SiIvaGunner backroom uploaded a certain amount of "S.L.A.B. Freestyle" mashups that got popular among the fans. However, the general consensus regarding rips containing "S.L.A.B. Freestyle" turned negative over time, with many rippers and backroom members regarding it as one of the worst memes on the SiIvaGunner channel, and has become since then mocked by the backroom - like in the rip "Title Screen (Demo) - Super Mario 3D Land" - and banned from user submissions.
"S.L.A.B. Freestyle" appeared a lot less often post-reboot, being exclusive to medley mashups such as "Vs. The Wicked Company (Alternate Mix) - Kirby Planet Robobot", "Dark Castle (Beta Mix) - Kirby Planet Robobot" and "Reach for the Summit - Celeste".
However, during the Nostalgia Critic Takeover, it reappeared as a semi-prominent recurring joke, to be reminiscent of the GiIvaSunner era. Unique rips were created with the song, such as "Tough Zombeat - MOTHER 3" and "Doctor Louie's Interior - The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie". It continued being used in unique rips past the end of the event, effectively making the song once again a minor meme.
The popularity of Chip tha Ripper's freestyle rap culminated with a Chip tha Ripper character that has appeared primarily in the CCC.
