Billboard Awards Preview: Jibbs

American Idol finalists weren't the only young talents heating things up at the FOX Billboard Music Awards. We were also psyched to chat with 16-year-old hip-hop phenom Jibbs, who seemed wise beyond his years but had lots of boyish charm. It was Jibbs's first time in Las Vegas, and he was riding high on the success of his first single, "Chain Hang Low" (check out the video here) from his new album, Jibbs Featuring Jibbs. His big brother produced the album, and his 12-year-old sister came up with the name:

"The album is really versatile. I can make a rock song or I can go to a slow song for the ladies or I can make a real hardcore song. So my little sister was like, you’ve got so many styles on your album you should call it Jibbs featuring Jibbs."

Like us, Jibbs is really hoping to see Jay Z show up at the awards Monday night. "I was raised up on Jay Z and Nelly, and it’s exciting for me that Jay Z’s back at it again. There’s a possibility I could do a song with him now. Jibbs Featuring Jay Z."
