Bio

Derrick Gilbert burst onto the Gospel Music Scene nearly a decade ago after capturing the attention of Prince and a few well known media journalist (Eric Dyson, Tavis Smiley, Cornell West, Londell McMillan) and an auditorium full of Prince fans at "The Celebration" a music festival held at Paisley Park in the summer of 2002. It was after the release of his controversial debut cd "No Apologies" that had the room buzzing. A fusion of Gospel, Hip Hop and R&B mixed with social and political consciousness lightly sprinkled over kick drums, snares and pianos.
2011 shows no signs of slowing down and now "The New Face of Gospel has arrived with his best work yet. The 3rd Independent Record entitled "Joma's Lil Brutha" is a mixture of Gospel lyrics sung and rapped over Hip Hop/Soul/R&B tracks. All written, arranged, produced and composed by this modern day Mozart. JLB has surely changed the game.
