St. Louis-based Jibbs began writing raps at an early age in an effort to impress his older brother, DJ Beatz (who was gaining a reputation locally producing tracks for Nelly and Chingy).
The results so impressed his brother that he invited Jibbs into the studio to record tracks that would become popular on the local circuit. The tracks started to spread outside St. Louis and found themselves in the hands of industry executives, which resulted in Jibbs opening for several superstars when they performed locally. He later signed to Geffen Records, where his debut single, "Chain Hang Low," was the most popular rap download in August 2006. His debut album, Jibbs Featuring Jibbs, followed in October. ~ Rob Theakston, Rovi
