Darryl Gibson, known professionally as Positive K, is an American rapper/songwriter from the Bronx, New York City, New York. Gibson was inspired to rap as a child when The Fearless Four invited him to perform on their mic. Gibson’s first musical endeavor was the short-lived family hip hop group Disco Cousins, where he performed under the moniker Baby Breeze. Queens New York rapper Glenn “Sweety G” Toby produced Positive K’s debut single “Getting Paid” for the independent label Star Maker Records. The song brought him recognition after it was featured on the label’s showcase album “Fast Money”, a 1986 compilation that also featured Rob Base & DJ Eazy Rock’s debut recording as well as a track by hip hop pioneer Disco Dave. In 1987, Gibson signed with Nat Robinson’s First Priority Music. With the assistance of producers Grand Puba of Brand Nubian and Daddy O of Stetsasonic, Gibson released several singles which appeared on various underground compilations. In 1989, “I’m Not Having It”, his duet with rapper MC Lyte, reached the Billboard chart and further established his reputation in hip hop. Shortly thereafter, Gibson left First Priority Music feeling that favoritism was happening with the owner’s relatives on the label. After leaving First Priority Music, Gibson began working with Big Daddy Kane, whom he met through a friend. He would bring Gibson on stage to freestyle with Jay Z and Sauce Money. Guest appearances on Brand Nubian’s “One For All”, Grand Puba’s “Reel To Reel” as well as the Big Daddy Kane produced single “Nightshift” generated enough interest to land him a recording contract. In 1992, Gibson released his full length debut album “The Skills Dat Pay The Bills.” The album’s most successful single, “I Got A Man”, reached #14 on the Billboard Hot 100 in early 1993. He also released the albums “Back To The Old School” (2008) and “Gr8te Mindz” (2017).
