The 100 Best Hip-Hop One-Hit Wonders

50. Jibbs "Chain Hang Low" (2006)

Producer: The Beatstaz
Album: Jibbs Featuring Jibbs
Label: Geffen Records


Jibbs was another artist out of St. Louis, MS (labels were looking for the next Nelly, the next J-Kwon). His career was short lived, though, reduced to the 2006 ringtone rap song "Chain Hang Low." The tune lifted its main melody from "Turkey in the Straw," a popular minstrel-show tune that dates all the way back to the 1800s. Most people recognized it as the song the ice cream man plays when he drives around. Which may have helped score points with the kids, while turning off most adults.
