Jarel was born April 18, in the Bronx, New York. Jarel was introduced to hip hop at a early age thanks to his father. His father "The Doctor" was a well known DJ for Boogie Enterprise. He would come home from school and turn to BET and watch Rap City, and dream that he would be there one day. Jarel use to run around the house freestyling so everybody could hear him. Using his father's opinion to measure his skills. Then at age 10, Jarel's ambition and desire crumbled when his family moved to Roanoke Rapids, a little town in North Carolina. He was still a big fan of hip hop, but his desire to be a part of it died out. It wasn't until his junior year in high school, that the desire came back, after moving back to the Bronx, NY. A year later, Jarel released a mixtape called the Blackbag Vol.1 with the help of independent label Ganksta Face Records. Jarel caught the attention of local producer Phat Phuq. Through Phat Phuq, Jarel was introduced to Playboy, a music manager from the notorious group from the Bronx, Terror Squad. He quickly took Jarel under his wing and started to develop him. Shortly after Playboy left and Jarel was back on his own. Word got around that Sony and Interscope were looking for interns. Jarel quickly jumped on it and started a internship at one of the biggest record labels in america, Interscope Records. He shortly after started working with music manager Mel Love. Mel Love has worked with Bad Boy Records with acts G Dep., and Black Rob. Shortly after he left, and Jarel was on his own yet again. Jarel started doing shows at some of the hottest spots in New York City. His records started getting rotation on college stations nationwide. He caught the attention of music manager Wallo. He was managing Young Capone and Montana Da Mac at the time. This management situation didn't last long like the others before.
