Born and raised in Richmond, Virginia, Kirbs laidback vibe, and steady words keep you on your toes. He is not average, if anything he's a seasoned veteran in this game. Kirbs has been putting out music since 2003, starting out as a 13-year-old, suburban kid making comedy raps and parodies. With that being said, he's been making music for about 20 years.

Within the first year though, I wanted to be taken more seriously. At the time, R. Kelly was screaming “its Kells!” on all his tracks and I had made parodies of his shit and yelled “its Kirbs!” (My government is Zach Kirby) and the name and that adlib stuck. - Kirbs

As he began progressing and taking his music more seriously, it definitely became the right name for him. All Kirbs is about is honesty, so it's only right he chose his government.

Q: What influences your music? (i.e. musicians, shows, certain art forms)
A: Kanye has been my biggest artistic influence (for 20 years) but he makes it really hard to be a fan I'm kinda done. Jay Z, Cam’Ron, Lupe Fiasco, Common— those 5 are like my influencer top 5. Always admired Murs indie grind/truth-telling and I don't fan out over J. Cole, but, I think we have similar approaches. Eminem, Game, 50 Cent, XXXTentacion, and Nipsey all need to be mentioned here.

Kirbs had about 100 songs but wiped the slate clean for his upcoming album. He wants and is looking for a rebirth of sorts. And apparently, all the old songs were of bad quality and he never prioritized the quality.

With “Victory Lap” (lol my only song currently on streaming platforms “ALL CAP” coming whenever my quesday drops) I thought for a second I was gonna get DMX on it (“Victory Lap”) to do one of his prayers… but his account was probably just scamming. I had spoken to him before when I was a kid (gave him my CD and he promptly threw it away lol) so I thought maybe just maybe he remembered that and it wasnt a scam. When I dug deeper on getting the “feature” whoever was on the account (maybe DMX?) got really mad-just like DMX! So maybe it was him! RIP. - Kirbs
