"Chain Hang Low" is a hip-hop song by American rapper Jibbs. It was the debut single off his debut album Jibbs Featuring Jibbs. It uses a sample of the children's song "Do Your Ears Hang Low?". "Chain Hang Low" peaked at number 7 on Billboard Hot 100, his only top 40 hit on that chart. It also reached numbers 6 and 16 on the BillboardHot Rap Songs and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts respectively and charted in countries like Ireland and New Zealand. The song went on to rack up more than 20,000 ringtone downloads in a span of two weeks. The song reached number 50 on Complex 's list of the 100 best hip-hop one-hit wonders.
XXL blogger Byron Crawford and The Source 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 pointed to St. Louis Native Lil' Mont as being the original creator of the song back in 1997. Surprisingly enough Lil' Mont is also featured on the remix of the song.
"Chain Hang Low" debuted at number 69 on the Billboard Hot 100 the week of August 19, 2006. Six weeks later, it reached the top 10 at number 8 on the week of September 30, 2006 and stayed there for three weeks. It peaked at number 7 the week of October 21, 2006. It stayed on the chart for twenty weeks.
Directed by Benny Boom, the video features Jibbs rapping the lyrics while he's around a neighbourhood where several people are around him, an underground parking lot where he's involved in a boxing match and the camera getting a close-up of his custom-made chain and grill. The video also shows an ice cream truck being driven by an obese man driving away from the children who want some frozen treats, only for him to get distracted by an attractive woman (set up by the children) and lose what he was carrying in his truck. The video shows adolescents doing the snap dance.
