Jibba The Gent - "I'm Dead"
Jibba The Gent is a very busy man. Hip hop is a culture where everyone says they're busy, but the work is the proof. I'm Dead is a single off his new album, "The Broccoli Tree." It's a testament to his long game approach -- a lean, heavy LP full of big hooks and strong guest features.
The video is colorful & ambitious as hell, worlds apart from the usual "rapping in front of buildings" approach. You can tell how much work went into every frame here.
Fresh off a triumphant gig at Windsor Station last night -- and well-deserved headline appearance at YO! BTV Raps last week -- it looks like Jibba is only getting started.
In the meantime, check out this excellent interview with Skilly Magazine, discussing his goals, business strategy & local scene.
