WOW! What a couple of decades it’s been!! On this day 20 Years ago, March 21, 2000, I launched my Independent Record Label, #RipRecords, with my first credit card while still in High School. I had no idea what I was doing or how long it would last. With the Grace of God, family, friends, supporters, and fans like you all…we’ve had one heck of a journey! Check out this little video highlighting the journey from our humble beginnings as a punk kid from #Waukegan recording in his bedroom, to now serving God and being considered for multiple GRAMMY Nominations!
I wish I could share every single pic, message and Snaps I receive from you all…but it’s all just too much. Just know I appreciate every single one if you whoever rocked with me over the last 20 years!!! This is to you for keeping my childhood dream alive! To 20 more!!! 🙌🙏🎉

On Friday, August 2, 2019 Rip headlined “Urban Fest 2019” in La Ceiba, Honduras. Check out this recap video + the brand new song he teased for the first time ever, “Bonita”, off his 4th solo album, Delivered, due out 2020!!!!
I want to thank my Honduran family and people, Door Creek Church, our High School Ministry, students & family as well as all the people who donated and prayed for this mission trip to #Honduras. This is not even a fraction of the amazing work that was done by team 1 on week 1 (of 2). It was a trip that no amount of video or words could ever articulate. It changed my life and I am forever grateful for my #DoorCreekChurch team and all those that supported this trip and helped make a difference. Thank you all for letting us serve you. 🙏🇭🇳💓
5-Time Madison Hip-Hop Award Winner, 2019 Best of Madison Silver Award Winner and GRAMMY Considered Recording Artist Rip announces 4th studio album, Delivered, and debuts new song, “Jolene”, live at The World’s Largest Brat Fest Sunday, May 26, 2019 on the GRAND Stage.
Recording Artist Rip just did something not many Christian or faith-based Recording Artists have done. He just got done playing a live 40 minute set on Top40/Rhythmic radio with songs off his latest release, “Trinity”. The performance was part of a radiothon hosted by Krista Uelmen, of “Krista & The Morning Rush,” on WJQM-FM in Madison, WI in an effort to bring awareness to mental health and to battle addiction. Every song performed by Rip brought glory to God. An openly Christian Recording Artist transcending into Top40/Rhythmic radio is rarely heard of in this day and age.
Rip just came back from the 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards where he was considered for “Best Contemporary Christian Performance & Song” for his single, “Drown”, as well as “Best Music Video” for his video “Satisfied”.
Rip is currently entering the studio to start work on a new album this year.
