    SOHH Exclusive: Jibbs, "Nobody Wants Another Jay-Z, They Want Something New"
    Saturday. 9.23.06 8:40 pm

    Friday - September 22, 2006 by Janeé Bolden

    St. Louis rapper Jibbs is preparing to release his debut album Jibbs Feat. Jibbs on October 24th. In this SOHH Exclusive he talks about his album, his skills in the boxing ring and the controversy over his single, "Chain Hang Low."

    "I really expect to surprise people," Jibbs told SOHH. "The album is totally different from the single. It'll shock a lot of people. I got a song called "King Kong" with Chamillionaire about the speakers in my trunk, 'Smile' features Fabo [D4L], I'm talking about the girls posing with it, being fly, 'Big Big Kids' is me telling everyone how I'm the young Jay or Puffy or Nelly now, but doing my own thing. I'm the youngest in the game but I'm flashy. "Hood" is telling my real life story, where I'm coming from."

    With his youthful first single and melodic hook, Jibbs has attracted comparisons to other St. Louis artists like Chingy and Nelly.

    "My album has St. Louis slang and they have the same slang and a similar vibe but I'm not the same at all. I think my style is very versatile, I'm constantly changing up. I'm coming from the Southside of St. Louis, one of the worst parts of St. Louis. It's the craziest. All my homeboys go through it. Little kids see a lot of stuff at any given time - problems with their Mom, shootouts, they can be in the middle of gunfights. I'm from the heart of the hood," Jibbs told SOHH.

    Jibbs, who turns sixteen in November, got his inspiration to rap growing up listening to Biggie, Jay-Z, Lil' Wayne and Nelly and aspires to be one of rap music's all time greats.

    "I don't like kiddie music, my song is not bubblegum. You would think it was when you hear the hook but it changes to a real hip hop song. My music adapts to everyone not just kids or grownups. I would hope they wouldn't put it in a category like that. By the time I end my career I want to be one of the greatest. I feel like everybody is just doing the same thing right now and I'm trying to do something totally different. People think they can be just like Jay-Z but nobody wants another Jay-Z, they want something new."

    The New York Times recently published an article revealing that "Chain Hang Low" samples a popular minstrel song, however Jibbs admitted to SOHH that he was unaware of the track's roots.

    "No, I didn't know that. I don't have any regrets though. I love the song, nobody can pick the hook for me it's my song. I'm happy with what I did. The song was done awhile ago. My brother (DJ Beats of Da Beatstaz) was producing around the city for local artists and I always loved that beat. I went to him about remaking it and I came with it," Jibbs told SOHH.

    In addition to his rap skills Jibbs is also holding down two Golden Glove boxing titles.

    "I was boxing before I was rapping," Jibbs recalled. "My dad was a boxer awhile ago. He took all my brothers to the gym by the time we were 4-years-old. I came up watching them and by the time I was 8 I was fighting in the ring. That was the same year I started rapping actually."

    While he says he prefers rapping over boxing, Jibbs says if artists want to start beef he's happy to put his gloves back on.

    "It ain't nothing to me. I'd rather get in the ring then."

    Jibbs Feat. Jibbs includes production from David Banner, Maestro, Polow Da Don and Da Beatstaz. Fabo of D4L, Chamillionaire and Pussycat Dolls member Melody make featured appearances on the album, while Yung Joc, Lil' Wayne, Lil Mont and Rich Boy join Jibbs on the "Chain Hang Low Remix."

    Jibbs Feat. Jibbs is in stores October 24th.
