If there’s one thing you need to know about me, it’s this… I’m never silent, even when people try to shut me up. Since I was in my early 20s, I’ve been shouting my message and spreading my own brand of freedom across the whole world. Together, we can make all of our voices heard and start influencing real change.
That’s what we’re all here to do, right? I know I am… I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas and probably got myself into more trouble than I should have when I was younger. Hell, life wasn’t always smooth sailing – but I made the most of it.
I always knew I wanted to use my voice as my main asset, and I loved sharing powerful, uncensored content – calling out a lot of the people who’d made it harder for people like me to succeed. That was my history. And my future’s the same.
I’ve built a community of liberty-minded people on a mission to spread liberty, speak out against nonsense, and work towards a more free and prosperous society. I see myself in all of my followers – and they see themselves in me, too. We’re writing a new story.
We’re all here to discuss everything we feel passionate about, while also figuring out what role we play in making things better. Let’s use the power of our voices to create a cultural phenomenon like no other. Together, we can make it happen.
I made a buzz under the name of ‘YG Rippa’ and released my first rap track. I built a name for myself across the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and started ghostwriting for other musicians.
I released my first YouTube video and started my channel. I also landed myself a track and field scholarship at University of Memphis before transferring to Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi.
I positioned myself as a metalcore vocalist and joined ‘Fire From The Gods’ as lead singer. Oh – and I smashed the 100m record at A&M (it’s still standing by the way).
I started using my voice as my main asset and began to grow politically and socially. My YouTube channel was making waves and I just wanted to keep it all going.
I put together BackWordz with a crew that wanted to try something new. We wanted to do the kind of metal I did with the previous group but take it further.
I co-founded ‘Being Libertarian’ and started my own act, BackWordz. I got known as a political commentator, appearing on Fox & Friends to discuss minimum wage.
I focused on an organization called Minorities Seeking Solutions because I wanted to help those who had the potential to be great and do something with that greatness but needed role models and not bad influences off the street.
BackWordz debut album, Veracity, landed on Billboard and Soundscan charts including the #1 Alternative New Artist and #2 Heatseekers album.
I was invited to join a conversation The News & Way it Matters with Sara Gonzales for The Blaze and still speak there today.
After adding comic book commentary, I grew my YouTube channel to more than 100k subs and continued to build a following of like-minded libertarians. I launched my podcast For Canon Sake where I strove to bring to light a lot of my grievances with the comic book industry.
Just one year later, my channel had more than 300k subs and my social media reach was into the millions. I had the platform to make a difference in the world.
I married the best human being in the world, Lady Rippa!
As my popularity and reach grew, so did my ambition and dreams. I decided instead of complaining about what I didn’t like about comics, I would do something about it and announced creating my own story.
Isom #1 launched along with Rippaverse Published. We made over 3 million dollars with 30k orders. It paved the way for me to bring on a team and more comics and expansion. We are just getting started.
If you want to talk about all things politics, culture, comics, games, music
and so much more – now’s your chance. Get involved with me, Eric D July, and my community of like-minded people to step up and set the world straight.
