"JELLZ" BORN DWIGHT CLARK JR  OCTOBER 15th IN NEWPORT NEWS AKA (BAD NEWS) VA. HE MOVED TO MARYLAND WHEN HE WAS JUST A YOUNG BOY. AS A YOUNGSTER MUSIC WAS ALWAYS IN HIS HEART FROM SINGING IN CHURCH, PLAYING IN THE SCHOOL BAND AND BEAT BOXING AND BEATING ON TABLES. MUSIC WAS WHAT HE ALWAYS WANTED TO DO. WHEN HE WAS A TEENAGER HE WENT BACK TO VA TO VISIT HIS FAMILY WHEN HE SAW HIS OLDER COUSIN DUKE AND A GROUP OF FRIENDS RAPPING AND RECORDING THEMSELVES ON A HOME STEREO. WHEN HIS COUSIN TOLD HIM TO JOIN IN HE REALLY DID'NT KNOW WHAT TO SAY SO HIS COUSIN TOLD HIM TO SAY WHATEVER IS ON HIS MIND AND THAT WAS THE DAY HE GOT THE LOVE FOR HIP-HOP. SO WHEN JELLZ GOT BACK HOME FROM HIS VACATION HE LINKED UP WITH A GROUP OF FRIENDS AND STARTED A GROUP. ABOUT A YEAR LATER JELLZ GOT A PHONE CALL AT WORK SAYING HIS COUSIN DUKE PASSED AWAY. WHEN HE AND HIS FAMILY WENT TO VA FOR THE SERVICE JELLZ FOUND OUT RECORD LABELS HAD BEEN CALLING WANTING TO SIGN HIS COUSIN BUT IT WAS TO LATE FOR HIM TO LIVE OUT HIS DREAM.SO JELLZ VOWED THAT HE WOULD GIVE ALL HE GOT TO GET IN THE MUSIC GAME FOR HIS FAMILY AND MOST OF ALL HIS COUSIN DUKE. AFTER A LOT OF BOUNCING AROUND FROM GROUP TO GROUP JELLZ LINKED UP WITH A GUY BY THE NAME OF LOU RAWZ AND FORMED THE GROUP TRI-STATE. AFTER ABOUT 2 YEARS OF SHOWS AND CD'S LOU TOLD JELLZ THAT HE WILL BE GOING TO THE ARMY. WHEN JELLZ GOT THE NEWS HE LOOKED AT IT AS A CALLING FROM UP ABOVE SAYING IT WAS TIME TO GET ON HIS GRIND. AFTER SUCCESS AS A SOLO ARTIST, WITH MAJOR LABELS WANTING TO SIGN HIM JELLZ SAID NO TO ALL THE RECORD LABELS. SOME MAY WONDER WHY HE TURNED DOWN A MAJOR RECORD DEAL. HE TURNED THE LABELS DOWN BECAUSE HE HAD A CALLING TO GOD AND GAVE HIS LIFE TO GOD. SHORTLY AFTER GIVING HIS LIFE TO GOD HE DECIDED GOSPEL HIP-HOP IS WHAT HE WANTED TO DO. A LOT OF PEOPLE LAUGHED AND TOLD HIM HIM HE COULDN'T DO IT BUT AS YOU CAN SEE HE SUCK WITH IT AND GOD IS BLESSING HIM AND HIS MUSIC. HIS STORY IS NOWHERE NEAR DONE, IN FACT HE IS JUST GETTING STARTED. SO SUPPORT AND JOIN JELLZ ON HIS JOURNEY!!!!
