Big Gipp lives wild and free on “Beautiful Lover,” the first single from his upcoming album Zagga. The funky and feel-good track, produced by DR Freak, features the soulful stylings of R&B crooner Eric Benét. The Goodie Mob member proves he’s one badass and shouts out his influences including Prince and Michael Jackson. Gipp has reunited with L.A. Reid at Epic Records, where he will release Zagga this spring.
The plan for Big Gipp is to release his Zagga album in Spring. Here’s what he had to say about the title: “The name starts with the end of the alphabet and ends with the beginning. That’s the significance of it all. I did it full circle as far as being an artist. That’s what I mean by the name of the album, Zagga.”
