Jelani Olushola Bodden better known as Jackz was born in Brooklyn in 1993 and raised in Queens New York. At age 5 he discovered his love for writing, by writing poems and stories. At age 11 he wrote his first song and at age 13 he recorded his first track, from then on his dream to pursue music was born. Jackz was raised on all types of music growing up, including mostly R&B, Salsa, Soul, and Hip Hop. His mother loved to listen to Prince, Stevie Wonder, Take 6, and Jill Scott, and so did Jackz. He loved the art of producing, rapping, and song writing, and with so much talent he decided to pursue it all. The young producer, hip hop artist, and songwriter, has released his debut album which is entitled “Above Sound”. Jackz’s Above Sound represents Jackz as a perso. Diverse, creative, a little bit of everything, from party to love and deep thought. And it doesn’t end at just music; Jackz has appeared in acting roles such as recording artist Joell Ortiz’s music video “Call Me” starring as young Joell Ortiz.
