First of all, Jibbs said he is not hating on Soulja Boy. At the same time, the St. Louis rapper is wanting acknowledgement for opening the door for young rappers to find success. Many may have forgotten Jibbs, but if his song comes on, they will know it.
During the summer of 2006, Jibbs dropped “Chain Hang Low,” and it was a massive hit. Unfortunately, the song didn’t have much staying power, nor did Jibbs. That’s not saying he didn’t go out without a fight, as “King Kong” made minor noise, months later.
By the time Soulja Boy emerged, roughly a year later, Jibbs was an afterthought, though. However, Jibbs was one of the first people to co-sign Soulja Boy, and he is in the “Crank Dat” music video. In the wake of Soulja Boy going off, Jibbs has called him out for his help in putting him on.
