Jacky Jasper first made a name for himself hustling with woman on the rough streets of Toronto in the early 90s. Then upon returning to his East Orange, NJ stomping grounds, he immediately landed a deal with Set It Off Records; the price wasnt right, so he moved on to NYC and hooked up with legendary duo Eric B and Rakim. They offered Jacky a deal on there Street Life Records imprint, but again, the price wasnt right for Jacky. He quickly picked up his things once again for a life of leisure in Hollywood. There Jacky returned to his day job (hustling) while riding with industry outlaws Ice T and Kool Keith. Two short weeks after arriving in Hollywood, Jacky helped Keith record the now underground cult classic First Come, First Served and also made a guest appearance on Keith and Kutmasta Kurts celebrated Diesel Truckers.
After tearing down every show of the 2001 Vans Warped Tour, Jacky released his debut, Keep My Shit Clean, which featured guest appearances from Kool Keith, Ice-T, Chino XL and Roger Troutman.
