“4275 Wesley Hall Drive Decatur, Georgia. That’s where I grew up, where everything happened started happening for me”- Jacquees
The young Cash Money heart-throb is only 23 years old and his hit single “B.E.D.” sampling Avant’s single I Can Read Your Mind has finally charted and has attained gold status. Jacquees is also gearing up for his debut album entitled ‘4275’. With his sudden success, sold out shows, mixtapes, and now a charted single Jacquees praises his label and the team behind him.
Within recent news, there has been whispers and rumbles about the Young Money and Cash Money and the fate of the record labels. With artist stating that Birdman owner of both labels owes a few artists money, it looks like that problem has not trickled down to Jacquees as he buys his first mansion in his hometown Atlanta Georgia and praises the record label.
Rodriquez ‘Jacquees’ Broadnox sits down with Complex.com to give fans an insight into his life and his musical journey. A star receiver out of Decatur, Jacquees was quickly a college phenomenon at Florida. The decision to pursue music full-time was a decision that was ultimately made for him. When his coach decided to leave his football team, and his friend/ teammate, Jacoby Campbell drowned in a fatal accident, Jacquees decided to go full throttle in pursuing music that was life was too short to not follow one’s passion.
Through perseverance and hard work Jacquees’ caught the ear of none other than the R&B and pop star Chris Brown who then executive produced his 2014 project “19” which was one of the few projects that were not available on all popular streaming websites. In 2016 he released his mixtape entitled Mood which some arguably say showcases the versatility of Jacquees talent, vocal range, and sultry voice.
