Rico "Bigg Gipp" Gibson

Rico Gibson, aka, "Bigg Gipp", started playing drums and trombone at the age of 4yrs old. His talent begin at a church called "The United House Of Prayer For All People", in Macon, Ga. He learned very early that music would be a great part of his destiny. Being a seed of two musically gifted parents, his father, Henry Gibson played all instruments, guitar and piano. He was the best-friend to the late-great Otis Redding Sr. His mother Cora was a singer with "Little Richard" as a little girl. Rico started playing Trumpet while in 3rd grade and continued playing brass until High School where he migrated through several other brass instruments and eventually landed on Tuba. He sat 1st chair his last (2) years in high school, in the marching band at Southwest. He went to college in South Carolina and continued his love of music as a snare drummer with the Claflin College marching band until 1990. Following in his father's footsteps as a musician, Rico now plays "all" brass instuments, piano and drums fluently. His latest credit, adding to his on stage performances, he played drums live, supporting his best-friend Ricky Bennett ..s, while opening for Donnie McClurkin, playing for up and coming Gospel Singer, "Kita."

He began his journey again as a rapper with his childhood best-friend Dondrell Williams. They rocked the house on many stages opening for different artists in the secular scene. He gave his life to Christ in 1996 and chose to rhyme about Jesus through his lyrics soon after getting saved. He then found a new love for music production, so he saved money through the years and acquired his own music studio. He has done production for countless Gospel artists throughout the industry and the underground. His desire now is to find "raw" gifted artists and nurture them into "hitmakers." Bigg Gipp is also half of The Holy Hip-Hop, Super-group, "Triple Duece." With longtime friend Tyrone "Silas" Johnson
