UNITY – Judge Da Beast, Jibba The Gent and S.I.N. SiZZle

Off his debut album 'Arraignment', Judge Da Beast joins forces with Springfield's Jibba "The Gent" (left, in DGK tank top) and S.I.N. SiZZle to get some hip-hop happening at the Vermont state capitol building.

The video was done in Montpelier on July 9th, the day of the Vermont Unity March. The purpose of the march is just simply to bring people together.

DVP Cinematography did the filming for a Judge Da Beast, S.I.N.siZZle and Jibba "The Gent" record called Unity. They wanted this to be more then just a music video, they wanted it to be a demonstration of freedom and unity, which Vermont proudly flies on it's State Flag. It's not any one group of people against another, it's all of us together.

Not your regular Rapper...

When you think of Vermont you might think of cheddar cheese, maple syrup, cold weather and snow. Or perhaps, the Mountains covered in foliage and ski vacations. The last thing one might relate with Vermont is Hip-hop music. Enter Jibba The Gent. Born and raised in Southern Vermont, Jibba brings a new flavor of Hip-hop center stage. Based on creativity, versatility and home-grown attitude (pun intended) Jibba's style is set to throw a wrench in the normalcy of the hip-hop industry.

Jibba moved around a lot in his early childhood. He was born in Rutland VT and before the age of Ten had lived in Brattleboro, Putney, Hinsdale NH, Tinmouth VT and eventually settled into Springfield. Perhaps this is why Jibba is constantly on the go. Whether it's traveling coast to coast for shows or promoting his own brand in Southern Vermont, something is always brewing. There is a constant creation of ideas, content, reaching out and collaborating with fellow local artists and community driven work. The desire to help others succeed comes from the experience of figuring out the music business by his own trial and error. Growing up in rural Vermont, studios were few and far between and people in the business were next to impossible to find. It truly felt to Jibba that he had to find his own path out of the woods. Armed with some of hip-hops finest album's Jibba's love of the culture and music would eventually grow into a budding career.

Fast forward to today. Jibba has been a part of many Vermont based hip-hop collectives. BABDR, From The Ground Up ENT, Causin' Effect and So.802 Studio's. He has owned two studio's open to the public, and has promoted shows with major headliners. In addition he has seen his music spread Nationwide on TheCoolTV music channel on Comcast and had 8 weeks of Top 40 radio play. Two of those weeks having the number one song locally on the Top 8 at 8 segment on Z97.1 as one half of Causin' Effect. Now, it's time to head out on the solo path. With the release of his first full length solo album "The Broccoli Tree", Jibba has been hard at work promoting and growing his fan base. Planning a tour with his personal DJ from Maine, DJ Buttons and who he considers his out of state extended family 656 Records. The tour will run through the summer of 2017 and hit all states in New England. Consider this your invitation to come out and hang with a "Goodfella" Jibba The Gent!
