The Jacka (Dominick Newton), born 1977, is an American born rapper. He was born in Oakland, but raised in Pittsburg, where his career started as one of C-Bo’s Mob Figaz (along with Rydah J. Klyde, Husalah, Fed-X, and AP.9). The group’s first album, C. Bo’s Mob Figaz, was released in 1999. Since then, The Jacka has released many solo albums and side projects. He currently runs his own label, The Artist Records.





The Jacka’s success proves his mettle as an emcee. He has been featured on over 50 albums over the past six years (2003 - 2009). His contributions to the Mob Figaz self-entitled album resulted in over 100,000 units sold. His tour with Yukmouth (of the Luniz), C-Bo, the Mob Figaz, and Tech 9ne exposed him to nationwide notoriety. His first solo release (featuring Too $hort, Cormega, Christion, and Yukmouth) in 2002 sold over 30,000 units. The Jacka sold these units himself, in the Bay Area and through shipping to one-stops across the country.

On 2nd February 2015 he was shot, aged 37. The rap community around the world has mourned his death. « hide
