Darryl Gibson, known professionally as Positive K, is an American rapper/songwriter from the Bronx, New York City. Gibson’s first recording was “Getting Paid”, which was released via the independent label Star Maker Records. It was included on the company’s showcase album “Fast Money.” In 1987, Gibson signed with First Priority Music. Under the guidance of producers Grand Puba and Daddy-O, Gibson released several singles that appeared on various underground compilations. The single “I’m Not Having It”, a duet with Mc Lyte, was the first Positive K song to reach the Billboard chart and helped further establish his reputation in hip hop. Gibson later left First Priority Music feeling the favoritism happening with the relatives on the label. Shortly thereafter, Gibson began working with rapper Big Daddy Kane, whom he met through a mutual friend. Kane would bring Positive K on stage to freestyle with Jay Z and Sauce Money. He also appeared on Brand Nubian’s “One For All” and Grand Puba’s “Reel To Reel” in addition to a self-released Big Daddy Kane produced single “Nightshift”, which landed him a recording contract. In 1992, Gibson released his full length debut album “The Skills That Pay The Bills.” The album’s most successful single, “I Got A Man”, reached No. 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1993. Gibson has continued releasing music over the years without duplicating the success of “I Got A Man.” He has released the albums “The Skills To Pay The Bills” (1992), “Back To The Old School” (2008) and “Gr8te Mindz” (2017).
