"Chain Hang Low" is the debut single by Jibbs from his debut album Jibbs Featuring Jibbs. The song went on to rack up more than 20,000 ringtone downloads in a span of two weeks. The video shows adolescents doing the snap dance. "Chain Hang Low" reached #7 on Billboard Hot 100.
The Source magazine and XXL blogger Byron Crawford have classified this song in a genre of music called "minstrel show rap", because the chorus's melody is taken from the minstrel show song "Turkey in the Straw." Jibbs claims he didn't know the origins of the song, but sources have come to find out that St.Louis Native Lil' Mont who is featured on the remix was the original creator of this song back in 1998 and surprisingly enough Jibbs was singing the chorus on the song.
