[Watch] Ripp Flamez new visual “Learning”
Cleveland, OH’s own Ripp Flamez releases a new visual for “Learning.” “Learning” is one track from his latest album DayOne, Forever follows Ripp through the Cleveland night as he sings about the tragedies he has faced, stopping in a bodega and a graveyard. “Songs like ‘Learning’ tend to get overlooked so it’s important to me to highlight that song and others like it that are a part of my life story,” Ripp explained when asked why it was important to him to make this video. The video also shows a group of children dancing, which Ripp explains, “The kids represent us as kids living through and around all the tragic events and being able to make light of it, to be able to dance and smile through all of it. I guess it symbolizes growth and being able to adapt.“
Ripp has become known for his trademark ability to combine suave R&B melodies with streetwise hip-hop lyrics, perfectly matching the mood of this track’s somber, slow-riding, bass-heavy beat. This style allows him to address the solemn topic of the gun violence that plagues Cleveland, capturing the tragedy with both his melody and lyrics.
