Video: SG Tip – “Mink Coat”
The Slaughter Gang Affiliate Shares the First Video from the Recent Block Boy Tip Project
“With each passing release, SG Tip is proving that he spent that time away from home honing his craft—he’s a talented rapper with a good ear for production and curation. Block Boy Tip could be a breakout moment for a young artist who has hit the ground running.” – Pigeons & Planes
With a quiet charisma and the same knife forehead tattoo as his mentor 21 Savage, SG Tip cuts a compelling figure in the ATL scene. Rocking a jean jacket and a pair of glasses that bely his aggressive lyrics, SG Tip shows off his understated flex in “Mink Coat,” his latest video. Produced by DJ Marc B, 21 Savage’s official tour DJ, “Mink Coat” is a low-key banger, with Tip counting his valuables and lashing out at haters and fakes: “I’m known for carjacking/You’re known for talking like a hoe.” Premiered over the weekend by WorldStarHipHop to the tune of over 76k views, “Mink Coat” is the first video from Block Boy Tip, Tip’s sophomore mixtape. Brimming with headphone-ready trap production from Richie Souf, Trellgotwings, Tre Trax, J Rich, and more, Block Boy Tip is a catchy chronicle of Tip’s lightning quick come-up.
An affiliate of 21 Savage’s Slaughter Gang since age 11, SG Tip’s career hit a speed bump when legal problems landed him in juvenile hall for his last years of high school. Now 18, Tip is on the fast track to stardom, touring with 21 within months of exiting juvie, working with superstar producers like Metro Boomin and Pi’erre Bourne, releasing his surprise hit mixtape N*gga With Ambition (NWA) in 2017, and earning over 1 million plays on his video “No Brain.” Earlier this month, SG Tip shared “Push Up,” an addictive single with appearances from fellow rising stars Yung Bans and Smokepurpp. “With each passing release, SG Tip is proving that he spent that time away from home honing his craft,” praised Pigeons & Planes in their “Push Up” premiere, “he’s a talented rapper with a good ear for production and curation. Block Boy Tip could be a breakout moment for a young artist who has hit the ground running.”

SG Tip is a new rapper that hails from East Atlanta, Georgia. He has very close ties to Slaughter Gang and PDE, dating back to when he was 11 to 12 years old. At the age of 15, Tip had several legal issues which landed him in juvenile hall and caused him to miss his latter years of high school. After his release from juvie, Tip hit the road with 21 Savage and started to soak up game from the rising rapper. Less than one year ago, after coming off tour with 21, Tip began his career as an artist and has since quickly gained a following with great expectations for his upcoming music. His debut mixtape, NWA, a collaboration project with Tip and Pierre Bourne, dropped in October 2017. Accompanying NWA were visuals “Looking For Me“, ”Gangland” and a single “No Brains“ produced by Metro Boomin. NWA laid the foundation for Tip’s career and the follow up tape Block Boy Tip arrived in March 2018.
