Jackson was born in the borough of Queens in New York City and was raised in its South Jamaica neighborhood by a single mother Sabrina. Sabrina was a drug dealer and raised Jackson till she was alive. She passed away in a fire when Jackson was only eight. After that, he was raised by his grandmother as his father had also left him. He started boxing at the age of 11. When he was 14, a neighbor had opened a boxing gym for local youth. He used to sell crack during primary school.
At age 12, Jackson started dealing narcotics. At that time his grandparents thought he was in after-school activities. And he also brought guns and drug money to the school. When he was in the tenth grade, he got caught by metal detectors at his high school.
On the 29th of June, 1994, he also got arrested for selling four vials of cocaine to an undercover police officer.
