I just heard the news this morning. I had been trying to find Kipís number for a while now. A mutual friend called to tell me the news. I met him when I was 21 and he attempted to help me with my singing career. Looking back I wasn't really that good, but Kip always was polite and took time out of his busy schedule to help me out. My experience with the music industry is that people will take advantage of you, but Kip always showed me the opposite. I am trying to wrap my mind around the fact that he is gone. Kip was a beautiful human being who will always live on in my heart and his music that has influenced many people will live on.
I love you Kip

Sorry to everyone for your loss. Unfortunately Newsday only prints tragedy, loss and "stories"... this guy must have been a good guy so there's no story there. just "another motorcylce crash victim" to them. I don't think it's a racial thing, I just think it's a reporter thing. they suck!

more often then not these motorcycle "accidents" involve what i call rice rockets racing down the street at incredieble speeds. you see them flying through traffic at 90 mph, weaving in and out of cars doing 30 mph.
i'm not saying this is one of those because all newsday said was that it was a 2000 yamaha.
but when you give a 21 year old kid a vehicle that has the ability to cruise at over 100 mph you might as well give him a gun with directions to shoot himself.
everytime one of these idiots ride between cars in stop and go traffic they are not only putting their lifes at risk but also innocent drivers.
how many of you see this everyday on the LIE and feel like opening your door?
these "nuts" drive like they are at the Daytona 500 and for the most part deserve the broken bones they receive.

kip was a nice guy. i see that. but kip was doing over 60mph in a 30mph speed zone. that's why kip didn't avoid the car backing out of the driveway.
kip was speeding and being reckless. when people who drive too fast and reckless on a motorcycle they are an accident waiting to happen. just thank god it wasn't a child on a bike that came out of that driveway

I knew Kip for over 20 years he was my high school sweetheart and became best friends years later.he was the type of man you can easily fall in love with,kind,sensitive,sweet,lovi ng,caring,brillant,self-esteem builder and the list goes on & on. but no matter what happened that tragic morning Kip changed all our lives forever,we miss you & love you with all hearts,to the Collins family you'll always have a special place in my heart.The last day i saw Kip was the night before he left for his trip to NC he gave me a big hug & kiss with that famous smile & said I love you see ya when I get back. I will treasure that day for the rest of my life because even though that was last time i would see him i thank God i had a chance to say no matter what coverage newsday did or did not print about Kip i had/have the real deal.

Why did Dan P ever bother to comment? Yes you can point out all the bad things from the dawn of time but if the rest of us are olny showing how much we cared for him, why is this guy making such negative points?
...just thank god it wasn't a child on a bike that came out of that driveway....
Well just thank God it was'nt you in that accident. Otherwise someone would be forced to say nice things about YOU....

I had know idea my friend pasted on. I am extremely at a loss for words. I remember meeting "Kip" in New York thru a friend of ours. He was such a cool dude, later we linked and started working on music in that basement of his. Here it is March of 2007 and I'm just finding out thru .... I'm at the computer playing poker and playing music randomly and a song that we cut together comes on so I say to myself: "I wonder if Kip has a myspace page?" I'm sure he does so I minimize the poker game and type him in the myspace search box. To my dismay I find all these blogs pertaining to a fallen producer that has touched so many live. WHat a way to find out about someone you have come to know and care for. He was truely a one in a million dude. I still can hear his sister saying "Kip I wish you'd stop riding motorcycles, you drive to crazy." That was something she was always fearful of (him getting hurt)from riding that bike. But anybody who knows Kip, he drove everything like he was on a race track! This is truely a testament to how he lived "always on the fast track and fighting to get to the top" That's how I wanna always remember my friend. I'll miss you, you are truely someone who made people feel like they were somebody. My heart goes out to the entire Collins family, may GOD bring you peace and strenght as you fight to carry on. Rest in peace KIP... XOXOXO

Words can not express the saddness that fills my heart to this day. Kip was my cousin that is a fact but to me he was so much closer than that. He had the ability to walk in a room and change your mood. It seems as though he always new what to say even though he did not know anything was wrong. All I can say is to know him is to love him. I was not suprised to see the amazing outpoor of people that showed to send him off for his home going. And he went in style. Kip was the person that everyone loved. And if you did not know what his profession was, you would not have thought that he was such a powerful force in the music industry that he was. That has not his armor. He wonderful spirt that GOD blessed him with was. And that alone explains why he was able to accomplish as much as he did in his time (Still too short for my view point) on earth. With all my love. I will always miss you.
Your little cousin

I miss you dearly. I wish there was something that could have been done to save you. So much work left to be done. I was a very close friend of Kip's for many years. We worked musically together. He would bless me with his music and I in turn would bless him with my vocals. We had our thing for awhile which I do not care to discuss. People have a way of trying to hurt others unnecessarily. He loved many women and didn't hide it, for that is part of who he was. Kip is gone on, now. No sense in trying to continue to compete as being the number one woman in his life. His wife was his music. He has proven that over and over, again. Kip was a man of many talents. He could take anything apart and put it back together, he loved the martial arts and practiced continually and he was quite the acrobat. His flips were phenominal. He was an all around amazing person. Everyone felt that they had a special connection with him that no one else had. Well, let me tell you a little secret. Kip had an art form of connecting with whomever he met and could vibe with anyone on any level. So, if you feel you had something special with him, you probably did. Hold on to that and go on living your life. Marry, be fruitful and multiply. Do your best and God will do the rest! You will succeed in life. Kip did. I love you, Kip. I will continue to sing and I will make it for myself, my family, for you and your family. I will see you again, someday, Peanut.

I first want to express my appreciations to Mr. and Mrs Collins as well as Terry. Kip was raised right. He was a reflection of his parents and older sister. Whenever we came up from Baltimore Ms. Betty or Terry would cook endless amounts of food. His giving nature was unbelievable. Kip was one of the greatest producer to ever lived. If you were ever in the studio with Kip then you know what I'm talking about. I was very hurt by the lack of coverage and support given to this tragic event. He did work for Puffy, J. Lo, Beyonce and others and his family didn't receive so much as a card. We live in a world of what have you done for me lately and how quickly the forget. I thank God for my friendship with Kip and the love of his Family. It was great to be able to sit with Mr. Collins and tell him some of the things he didn't know Kip had done or was a part of. Mr. Collins road with me during the Morgan State memorial services and expressed how hard this was for him. I just want to say to Mr. & Mrs Collins and Terry thank you because to have known Kip was a blessing because he was raised right. He will forever touch lives.
