bio // about

Saint Ripley is a different breed of rapper. Ripley’s 40 oz.-addled punk rock youth bled into his 20’s as he rocked stages in Filthy Hands, his politically-driven hip-hop duo. After years of opening for acts like T.I., $uicideBoy$, Pusha T and legendary members of the Wu-Tang Clan - Ripley finally went all-in. His first full length album, Thoughts & Prayers, dropped November 2019. The 16-track solo debut featured songs with Chicago stars, Mick Jenkins and Supa Bwe.

In July 2020, Ripley dropped a surprise EP, Girls, to overwhelmingly positive reactions. In his glowing review of Ripley's sophomore effort, Vocalo's Gabe Mendoza hailed Ripley's storytelling skills, stating "...Saint Ripley is now running in the same lane as a hip-hop icon." Girls, a project focused on a more pop-centric hip-hop sound, spawned two music videos: one for "The Drive", and another for "Reruns".

Ripley is currently promoting the Deluxe Edition of Girls. On November 9th, he premiered the visual for "it's ok to be alone". The video was filmed in deserts and mountains across Nevada and California, including shooting locations in Death Valley National Park and the Pacific Ocean.

You can look forward to much more from Saint Ripley in 2021 and beyond.
