Jibbs is the first rapper to hail from the infamous South Side of St. Louis where his reputation and career took off hanging out in the studio with his brother, Da Beatstaz DJ Beats, a long time producer for St. Louis natives Nelly and Chingy when he began free-styling and dusting off local & visiting rappers in the Beatsaz studio. Soon after claiming “the” coveted freestyle-crown for his ferocious rap prowess, Jibbs began opening up for artists such as Chris Brown, Bow Wow and Young Jeezy and quickly began getting offers from several major labels before signing with Geffen Records (the home of Snoop Dogg, Pharrell, and Mary J. Blige).
Growing up with a strong family unit in the ghetto is a very different scenario for a young black man in America. Jibbs the middle child of six was fortunate to have a family in tact that worked together. All four boys were trained and groomed into Golden Glove boxers by their ex-boxer father who nick-named him Jibbs derived from a slang term meaning a punch in the mouth. Staying true to his moniker, Jibbs is a two- time Golden Gloves champion and now he’s contending for the top space in hip hop with lead smash “Chain Hang Low” and forthcoming Geffen/Interscope release Jibbs Feat.
