Check out this Behind The Scenes look at Rip’s “Satisfied” music video! We were definitely blessed beyond words with this video!! Get a inside look as we head down to Big City Sets in Chicago and build our first set for any of his music videos!
IT’S HERE!! My newest music video, “Drown”!!! Crazy story about this song: It almost never made it to my album, “Trinity”. I thought my album was done but something told me “it was missing something”. So I went back and wrote this song…it was the last song recorded for my album literally weeks before the release of my album. It almost didn’t make the cut. What makes this story ironic is, this is the #1 fan favorite on my album…both feedback and sales!! It was so dope making this music video and I put it off this long after the release of my album on purpose. I hope you guys enjoy it! Please like, share, comment!!
It’s here! My latest single and music video, #GTW!!! I spent my whole summer working on this video but wouldn’t have it any other way. Thanks to all those who helped out with the production of this video but most importantly thank You, Lord, for accepting and forgiving me while I continually work on myself and strive to be more like You. 🙏

“Best Friend” will be available on Rip’s third studio album, “Trinity”, which is set to be released on Friday, May, 19, 2017.
It’s crazy to think that every single moment in my life has been leading up to this very moment right here. Every decision I’ve made whether it be to pursue music or not higher my education after high school. Any career opportunity that I’ve turned down. Every show that I have done; every hour I have spent in the studio honing my craft. Every penny I’ve invested in my music career and myself. Every talent and skill that I’ve learned and acquired over the years. Every opportunity and person that I’ve put second to my mission in life. For every hurt I’ve been through. It all comes down to this: My ultimate purpose in life; to glorify my Creator with the talents and mission He has blessed me with. A moment that will change the trajectory of my life & career forever in the direction it’s always meant to go. Truth is, I knew this was my mission for years (if not decades.) I was just stubborn and wanted to do things my way. But now comes the time when my music and career takes on a new meaning and purpose.
I want to thank all my supporters for sticking with me all these years…more than half my life. Crazy. For those who continue to stick with me: I love you. For those who no longer rock with me: I love you as well. You’ve helped bring me to this point in my life. The point where I can finally find meaning. So thank you. each and every one of you.
This song is probably one of the deepest, darkest, most vulnerable songs I have ever put out during my whole career as an artist. I want to thank Katie Scullin for collaborating with me. I struggled for many months with finding a singer/writer for this song and looking back, I can’t imagine the song being any different than what it is now. It’s what it’s supposed to be, all thanks to God. And I would like to thank everyone that was a part of the making of this video as well. Y’all got your feet dirty to help support a dream of mine like it was your own (including walking in muddy woods and waters…haha!)
So ,without further ado: “Who really is Rip? And why is he making this Jesus so central?”
