Born and raised in Pompano Beach, Florida, Jackboy first gained notoriety as an associate of Sniper Gang chieftain Kodak Black. Last Friday he released his second mixtape of 2019, Lost in My Head featuring Yella Beezy, Shy Glizzy, Ugly God, and JayDaYoungan and production from Da Baby-collaborator Jetson Made.
Earning tons of millions of YT views on “Grimace,” Bitch I’m Up,” and the Kodak-assisted “G to the A” (47M views) in 2017, the 22-year-old rappers has been a fixture in the South Florida scene. With a drawly delivery and facility with slick wordplay, the 20 year old makes deeply personal and hard-hitting rap music. Ping-ponging from heartfelt missives like “Jail Talk” to aggressive hitters’ anthem like, “In the Uber with a Ruger” to the sweetly-sung romantic jam, “Be Your Man” to mission statement, “Not A Clone,” (3M views), the Broward County native takes listeners deep into his turbulent life.
