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).
