THE GIPPS

Inspired by the true life formative years of Cameron Gipp AKA Big Gipp, The Gipps follows the unlikely suburban upbringing of a future hip-hop legend. Set in a historically significant suburb of Atlanta, populated by upper middle class African American families, entertainers, and civil rights leaders, Cameron’s childhood was at the center of the convergence of wealth, hope and history. It’s a story of what happens when the first generation of upper-middle class African American kids grow up in a neighborhood where they have more choices than their parents, more freedom than their grandparents, but still feel a connection to the projects on the next block over.
