Rip Rodgers-A&R Dallas
BigRip started 3rd Coast Entertainment in Texarkana, TX @1994. I fed up hearing bout the East and West coast! What about the Gulf Coast I know y'all see us and you got to hear us!
Many underground shoves and pushes later I am still here in 2014.
I have a passion and a purpose to make and affiliate myself with real Hip-Hop! That's often hard coming from a region that's not yet recognized for doing so.
After recording countless records and grassroots managing several artist here at TriCoastal Management & Promotions during early 2000's, I have established myself as a Veteran MC. Which I am most proud of! Over the course of the last year I have branded myself as www.tricoastalradio.com THE RHYME.
I am Owner & Operator and Our mission is to give the indie artist and label a platform to reach beyond their immediate market & region. Because of that i had been given the opportunity to several different hats in this industry. I manage & promote a handful of artist with genuine love for their craft and careers. Mike Archie da Don ( Boomin') Texarkana, Tx; Tes Swanks (Who Am I) McKinney, Tx Blueshoez(Ball On Em) Texarkana, Tx Big Ben aka Sweet Bennie Ray(Voice of the Streets) Ft. Worth, Tx and a few others! As stated earlier I am also an Artist my studio offering TDTFLS The Day the Fat Lady Sang. We're looking to release this early 2015.
As the Dean of Students,Coach & Professor here at Tricoastal University I welcome you to a place where rhyme writing is key principle and also consumed. Forward thinking is encouraged!!
