Two years ago, if you heard the name Jibbs, it was accompanied by the nursery-rhyme cheekiness of his snap dance smash hit Chain Hang Low. Since then, however, the his voice has deepened, and with this new maturation he will release Keep It Gangsta, the first official single off his forthcoming sophomore LP. Keeping a relatively positive outlook over producer Jesse “Aktual” Blake’s synth-heavy beat, Jibbs lets it be known that he is about representing what you stand for, regardless of what others think. The St. Louis native maintains a nonconformist outlook, rapping “When I talk about being a gangsta, I ain’t talkin’ bout bein’ a killa,” while Miami’s Pleasure P adds an aggressively passionate edge to the song’s hook. Jibbs’ new album, New Tempo, New Swagg is due at the top of 2009.
