Biography


Born on May 27, 1975, Jadakiss was raised in Yonkers, New York in a household where he was well-fed and taken care of. As a result, his friends often made fun of him by calling him Big Mack, as a reference to his favorite hamburger. He was interested in rap at a very early age when his parents asked him to earn his own money and so he stepped into drug-dealing business on the Big Apple street, where he met people doing freestyle for money.

When he was just twelve, Jadakiss joined a freestyle competition and was noticed for his rapping ability by management company Ruff Ryders. He then formed a rap group with two friends Sheek Louch and Styles P. under the name of The Warlock. Signed to Bad Boy Entertainment, he was suggested to change his group's name to The LOX, which stands for Living Off X-perience. He gained his first project as a featured guest with his band, later known as D-Block, in Main Source's single "Set It Off" from 1994 "Fuck What You Think" LP.
