Life

Jones originally wanted to be a National Basketball Association player who rapped on the side. Jones transferred many times, forcing him to only play in YMCA leagues due to transfer rules after the 9th Grade. Jones dropped out of high school and briefly took jobs at fast food restaurants. Jones worked at a Compaq plant and sold cell phones from an apartment on Antoine Drive. T. Brown, Jones's partner in several financial ventures, said that he sold some "dimebags" for six months, but they mainly bought "T-Mobile Sidekicks" and sold them for an inexpensive price.[1]

Jones often visited his grandmother's house in the Studewood (an area of Houston). Jones credited her for giving him the ideas to pursue rap, to use his real name, and to write songs about strippers.[1]
