From there, Gibbs explained that his father’s artistic talents didn’t have an impact on his own goals growing up. Instead, Gibbs says he wanted to play football at Ball State University.

“I definitely didn’t plan on ending up being a fucking rapper,” he explained. “I definitely didn’t see that shit in the cards for me at that age.”

In addition to rapping, Gibbs has also begun adding acting to his résumé. In 2021, he starred in the critically acclaimed film, Down With The King.
