Big Gipp - Definition of a Trendsetter
Big Gipp (Cameron Gipp by birth) is one of four founding members in the Goodie Mob. His wife, R&B; singer Joi, and him both artists in the Dungeon Family, a collective of southern artists that have helped re-shape by always managing a step ahead of the rest (which include hip-hop megasuperstars Outkast).
Pioneering, diverse and always original, Gipp's clever, politically stimulating lyrics (as well as his eccentric fashion sense) make him an integral player in a hip-hop universe dominated by gaudy artists with the gift of gab containing little substance.
In all, Gipp has released a total of four albums with the Goodie Mob. In 2003, Big Gipp embarked on a temporary solo career, releasing the album Mutant Mindframe. The album�s single was Steppin� Out, featuring Organized Noise R&B; Singer, Sleepy Brown. The single shows Gipp bringing a smooth, knock-out punch of a flow that is embraced by hip-hop fans around the world.
Big Gipp (along with the rest of the Dungeon Family) can best be described as trendsetters. Throughout his career he is continued to illustrate his originality even as far back as �Git Up, Get Out� (the first mainstream single that Gipp was featured). He can even be accredited for introducing the popular trend among today�s hip-hop artists of wearing �platinum grills,� which he actually states in Nelly�s Grilliz: �I ain�t dissin� nobody but let�s bring it to the light, Gipp was the first with his mouth bright white.�
After the collaboration with Nelly & Ali of the St. Lunatics on �Grillz� and the single�s album, "Down In Da Water", Gipp & Ali have formed a stronger alliance and are now working on a new album. Gipp is also scheduled to release his album, Kinfolks, soon.
