Early life

Jadakiss was born on May 27, 1975, in Yonkers, New York, and had an interest in hip hop from an early age. At age 12, he began selling drugs after his parents asked him to earn his own money. He soon stopped selling drugs, however, and instead began freestyle rapping for money after watching other people do it on the street corner. While freestyling, he eventually met longtime friends Sheek Louch and Styles P.


Phillips quickly developed a small underground fanbase and at the age of 12, entered himself into a freestyle competition in Florida where he attracted the attention of the owners of Ruff Ryders Entertainment. Along with Styles and Louch, he formed a group known as The Warlox, and the trio began rapping together. They eventually met Mary J. Blige, who, impressed with their lyrics, handed their demo to Puff Daddy, who signed the group to his label Bad Boy Entertainment.
