Foxxjazell Keva Jackson was born in Birmingham, AL from a family of hardworking hustlers. Both her mother and father worked all types of odds jobs to keep food in her mouth. At the age 6, she became influenced by the likes of Salt n Pepa, Michael Jackson and Madonna. "I would lock myself in my room and pretend I was performing in front of millions of screaming fans. "Her parents didn't share the same vision that she did instead they encouraged her to pursue a career more "logical" like teaching or nursing. By the age o17, Foxxjazell graduated from high school with honors and was looking to conquer life as an entertainer. Her influences had advanced to 2pac, DaBrat, TLC and Biggie Smalls. She took a one-way ticket to Hollywood with less than $20 in her purse. While in Hollywood, she started off modeling with a few print ads and also booked a few music videos doing background work. She quickly became discouraged when she realized these gigs didn't lead her anywhere. A change had to be made. The change came in the form of 14 year-old Maurice Tito Lopez, a runaway kid with big dream of making it big. The two young artists quickly teamed up and began making and performing music together. They eventually formed a group named One20five with two other local rappers. One20five performed at various venues through out Los Angeles but eventually disbanded in late 2004. Since then, Foxxjazell has performed in the Homorevolution tour that hit cities such as San Diego,Houston,Dallas and Phoenix. She also appeared on the Tyra Banks show to talk about queer hip-hop and the politics of the music industry that she has had to endure. This young starlet has a long way to go but she has already got a headstart.
