RapReviews (6/10)[6]

David Jeffries of AllMusic noticed the similarities to fellow St. Louis rappers Nelly and Chingy but found the album to be styled like "an LL Cool J release for the '80s." He concluded with: "Good flow, good beats, and overall, a good time."[3] Steve 'Flash' Juon of RapReviews found his performance to be average with rhymes that were "acceptable albeit entirely generic and run of the mill." He also said that the production from Da Beatstaz helped saved the album and that it should be retitled "Da Beatstaz Feat. Jibbs." He concluded with: "Jibbs Feat. Jibbs is not an altogether bad album, but really does nothing to put Jibbs on the map. You could easily substitute any one of a dozen rappers in or outside St. Louis over these tracks and get the same result - anybody from Ali to Cool Breeze to Bubba Sparxxx."[6]
