Early Life

Jackson was born in the borough of Queens, New York City, and raised in its South Jamaica neighborhood by his mother Sabrina. A drug dealer, Sabrina raised Jackson until she died in a fire when Jackson was 8. Jackson revealed in an interview that his mother was a lesbian. After his mother’s death and his father’s departure, Jackson was raised by his grandparents.

He began boxing at about age 11, and when he was 14, a neighbor opened a boxing gym for local youth. “When I wasn’t killing time in school, I was sparring in the gym or selling crack on the strip,” Jackson remembered.[16] He sold crack during primary school. “I was competitive in the ring and hip-hop is competitive too … I think rappers condition themselves like boxers, so they all kind of feel like they’re the champ.”

Personal life

On October 13, 1996, Jackson’s girlfriend, Shaniqua Tompkins, gave birth to son Marquise Jackson. Tompkins later sued Jackson for $50 million, saying he promised to take care of her for life. The suit, with 15 causes of action, was dismissed by a judge who called it “an unfortunate tale of a love relationship gone sour.” The two have bickered for years, and have even taken their feud to social media many times.
