Black Love Poetry Series Network presents The Aquil Ali Show
hosted by Poetic Shock Jock Aquil Ali with "Golden Voice Intellect" Poetess April J. Joining us is "Brotha To The Night," Mr. Love Jones himself, Regie Gibson.
Bio: Regie Gibson was born in Mississippi and raised in Chicago, Illinois with a "devout Christian evangelical fundamentalist" mother and a father who strict father who served on the Chicago Police Force (Gibson Email to Jackie Tynes sec. 3). Living in a cultural melting pot like Chicago often clashed with the strict household he was brought up in, as did traveling back and forth between the "Mississippi delta" and Chicago (Gibson Email to Jackie Tynes sec. 4). This strict upbringing influenced him heavily with the fact that his mother raised him and his brother to "quote biblical passages verbatim" and his father taught them to "survive in street hustler territory", which is reflected in his "current language and phraseology"( Gibson Email to Jackie Tynes sec. 3).
The impact of different cultures and types of music in Chicago also greatly influenced Gibson and his poetry. He "grew up" on Pilsen’s Mariachi and Narcocorridos, Humboldt’s Salsa, Merengue and Bachata, Rogers Park’s Rai, GnawaSoca and the west and south sides Funk, Hip Hop, neo-soul" (Gibson Email to Jackie Tynes sec.7) that can be heard in his poetry today. However it is the blues, jazz and the music of Jimi Hendrix that have resonated the most with Gibson and his poetry. The influence of Jazz also came a young age where he developed the ability to scat "a verbal convention in Jazz in which a singer experiments by imitating musical instruments and substituting lyrics for words for phonemes” (Gibson Email to Jackie Tynes sec.1). This scatting and jazz has evolved into the performances and poetry that he writes today.
