Biography

Lyricist Cary Give Gilbert, aka Hippy, was raised in Camden, NJ, and was close friends with Leon Huff before Huff blew up with Philadelphia International information. He’d help Huff obtain his electrical piano in his car after gigs. This happened when Huff performed keyboards with Kenny Gamble & the Romeos — both grew up collectively in Camden. The glib, full-framed songwriter quit marriage for music. Before music, he worked well two careers, and his wife worked well nine to five at town hall. A prolific lyricist, Hippy not merely collaborated with Gamble and Huff, but additional Philly stalwarts benefited from his witty, streetwise lyrics. R&B and pop giants documented Hippy’s tunes; some notables are: the O’Jays, Harold Melvin & the Blue Records, Billy Paul, Lou Rawls, People’s Choice, the Intruders, and Archie Bell & the Drells. The tunes are famous: “YOUR Here BESIDE ME (HOWEVER YOUR Mind Is on the other hand of City),” “Living for the Weekend,” “Become for Actual,” and “Let’s TIDY UP the Ghetto,” to begin with. Plus two megahits: “Don’t Keep Me IN THIS MANNER” as well as the R&B traditional “Me and Mrs. Jones.” Both surpassed the million tag in shows by Broadcast Music Integrated. Talking about how he writes tunes, Hippy once stated, “you merely exchange suggestions.”
