He's a popular Dallas area christian DJ/Producer, who has recorded two studio albums as a solo artist, as well as several others, as a member of the groups like Dallistic, and BC (Bone Circus).

Tour DJ

Early Life
Steve O. Cipriano was born in Dallas on October 4, 1980. He was born and raised in the historic Dallas area called Oak Cliff. He still currently resides with his wife in the Oak Cliff area of Dallas, Texas.

B-Boy
Stibs was an avid b-boy and would often listen to a variety of music on his older brother's turntable set. His older brother, Rudy Roc, was a legendary icon for Dallas club DJ's in the late 1980's and early 1990's. Early on, Stibs was influenced by an eclectic range of artists including Digable Planets, The Fugees, Al Green, and James Brown.

First Rap Song
It was when he was only twelve years old he wrote and recorded his first rap song entitled "Oh Baby" with his cousin Eric Ray Franco by only using a karaoke machine and the 1991 CD release of "Orbital" from Orbital as their instrumental.

Graffiti
As a teenager, Stibs was also introduced to the graffiti lifestyle. He would usually go by two different names. He was only in two graffiti crews, IRS & DFW, before he was invited into Infinitee Crew. Infinitee Crew or IC, was the first graffiti crew to originate in Dallas in the late 1980's.

Dallistic
In 2001 through 2003, Stibs and Apt23, a local female christian emcee, formed the hip-hop duo Dallistic. They were apart of the local Christian rap scene during this time as well. The femcee Dallistic eventually released a record titled "Live Life" on the independent label Praise HIM With Records. They also had guest appearences from LA Symphony, KJ-52 and RedCloud.

BC - Bone Circus
Eric and DJ Sean P was another local hip-hop duo named Bone Circus aka BC, in Dallas since 1999. Stibs officially joined the group in 2004, after the disband of Dallistic. BC poised to bring their fresh sound to audiences and iPods everywhere who were eager the listen.

BC Releases
With an humble yet loyal fanbase, which made their 2004 EP release, The Locals, an underground success. Stibs only produced the track " Problems". In the 2006 release of Framework, Stibs was featured on several tracks and produced "Loving You Easy". Shorty after the release of Framework, BC disband due to the early retirement of Sean P in 2006.

ILLY Graham
Stibs and Eric pulled together and continue to push on with their music under the new name "illy Graham". While their album is still in working progress, "illy G" made their big debut on stage with their new identity at the annual Tampa, Florida festival "Fla.Vor Fest" in 2006.

Nvade
The DJ is also the creator of the (cartoon) character Nvade. A small figure wearing a hoody. Stibs subsequently began to concentrate on his Nvade side-project, with which he'd been experimenting since late 2004. Nvade started off as his graffiti character logo.

Nvasian
His story behind the character is that Nvade is a Nvasian. Nvasian is a race of aliens from Nvasia with an interest in Graffiti. They came to Earth to experience hip-hop 1st hand from which it started. Then Stibs wanted to go further with this Nvasian. Stibs debuted Nvade's voice in late 2005.

Copy?
Quasimoto, a creation of super producer/MC Madlib (Stones Throw), would be the first to come into your mind. Actually, Stibs would be the first to admit, he did this voice to be on that same creative tip but not to bite or to be misunderstood.

All-Star Rejects
The All-Star Rejects are the bizarre alter egos of Producer/MC/DJ Stibs, one of many underground christian producers on the South Coast hip-hop scene. The All-Star Rejects are DJ Stibs and Nvade as the MC.

Albums
The DJ/producer is working on his next solo recording: "The Love Project" as well as the first All-Star Rejects release entitled: "Nvade & DJ Stibs Are the All-Star Rejects". An instrumental version of the album will followed later. The album "And I Love Her" is postponed until later notice.
