Jacquees is an American singer/ songwriter. His real name is Rodriquez Broadnax. He was born on 15th April 1994 which makes his age 22 at the moment. He is from Decatur, which is a city in the state of Georgia in the United States. He is a solo artist but can also be found working with various other artists in the hip-hop music industry. He is known for his 2011 mix-tape Round of Applause.
Jacquees’ career in the music industry began in 2007 when he was introduced to Orlando Grind by Dexx lee. Grind quickly became his manager and introduced him to Russell Spencer, known by his stage name of “Block”. Block was the founder and CEO of Block Entertainment.
On joining the studio, at first, Jacquees merely blended with the team. He wasn’t given the opportunity to stand out, shine and show his true talents. He was getting discouraged by the fact that there was some much work going on in the studio, but none of them was for him. At that time, hiss’ sole attention was on Rap, not R&B. In the summer of 2009, Block finally witnessed the raw talents of Jacquees. Block then shifted his vision towards Jacquees and started working more closely with him. Jacquees gained exposure immediately with the release of his first single “Krazy”. The single featured Grand Hustle’s own T.I., a famous American hip-hop artist of the time.
