Darryl Gibson (born 8 August 1967), better known by his stage name Positive K, is an American rapper and comedian from the Bronx, New York. He is best known for his hits "I'm Not Havin' It", a duet with MC Lyte, and his 1992 hit "I Got a Man", which borrows its dialogue between the sexes from the aforementioned "I'm Not Havin' It".

Positive K started his career in 1986, making his debut on a hip hop showcase album titled Fast Money for the independent label Star Maker Records. Later, Positive K was signed to First Priority Music, and made appearances on several underground hip hop compilations. He scored a major hit with the single "I Got a Man", which peaked at #14 on the Billboard Hot 100, before releasing his debut album, The Skills Dat Pay da Bills in 1993. The album balanced themes of Nations of Gods and Earths with gangsta-isms and pop-based moments.

Positive K continued to release singles, but never could duplicate the success of "I Got a Man". Since his recording and hip hop days, he has gone into stand-up comedy.
