Student Rapper Reps Penn State Colors

Not quite Wiz Khalifa‘s hit single, “Black and Yellow.” It’s Penn State student, Christian Gibbs, breaking into the rap world to rep life in Happy Valley in “Blue and White Penn State Anthem.” Pint, as he’s known to the kids at the concert, takes the musical experience to a new level by giving listeners a tour through Penn State (without all the walking backwards).

Rap isn’t just a hobby for Gibbs. Pint-sized Pint started spitting rhymes when he was 14 years old. Since then, his punch-line heavy flow has been compared to Young Money’s own, Lil’ Wayne. Pulling inspiration from his surroundings, Pint’s music lays out a story of a kid from Southern Florida with a single mom.

When he finds time outside of the bio lab, Pint’s spending time in the beat lab crunching out songs about his new home in Central PA. In “The Penn State Anthem,” he shuffles down College Avenue, name dropping all the hottest bars and late night eateries like Cafe 210, 797 Lounge, and Uncle Chen’s. He even gives Joe Paterno a nod with a sampled speech and mentions his legendary 400 wins.

Pint has made a few appearances in the past at high school proms and on Happy Valley’s number one morning show, The Morning Zoo on B94.5. His sights are set high. Gibbs is looking to bring his prideful rap act to a frat near you. Maybe even a show on the HUB lawn? A gig at The Mezzanine wouldn’t be a bad start. I mean come on, how else do you get a Penn State party bumpin’?
