The Jacka was born to teenage parents and grew up on the west coast. Due to a broken home, he began hustling on the streets at an early age, which later significantly influenced his lyrics and music style. His talent for writing about the West Coast thug life and a unique voice made him a recognized artist. Unlike many rappers, The Jacka did not glamorize the criminal lifestyle, which set him apart from others of the genre. The Jacka stated that one of his biggest musical role models had been Marvin Gaye, as he was unafraid to explore inner darkness and put it together with the music. The Pittsburg group Mob Figaz helped start Jacka’s career – their first album “C-Bo’s Mob Figaz” was released in 1999, and entered the Billboard Hip Hop chart in 63 position, and sold over 160,000 units., a god start to Jacka’s net worth.

In the following years, Jacka continued to dedicate himself to music, collaborating with DJs such as DJ Juice, DJ KTone and The Demolition Men. Soon after he was nominated for the 2nd annual Bay Area Rap Scene Awards for Best Underground Artist as well as Group of the Year, for his partnership with the “Mob Figaz”.
