Jrakkar Johnson was born on the 24th of March 1989 in Detroit, Michigan. Jrakkar Johnson was born and raised by his mother, who single-handedly trained him through school. Jrakkar’s mother lost both of her parents when Jrakkar was around 5 years old. This forced her to raise her siblings, Jrakkar and his brother. Jrakkar and his brother moved to their maternal grandparent’s place to live on the west side of Detroit.
Jrakkar’s mother is someone that can be described as a warrior, as she was able to train four kids despite all the challenges encountered by her. Jrakkar Johnson started schooling in his early childhood at a decent school in his neighborhood.
Jrakkar had first contact with his paternal family through his grandmother when they met in a store with his mom. The moment was described as magical as his grandmother became teary and compared Jrakkar’s resemblance to that of his dad. Since then, Jrakkar’s grandmother has been significant in his life. Jrakkar spent time with his grandparent every weekend and on weekdays with his mother.
Jrakkar is well-trained and disciplined by his mom, who ensures he cleans the entire household, takes care of his younger brother and attends to the needs of his aunt. Jrakkar felt unloved due to the constant pressure from his mom, and he had to look for love elsewhere; that was how he fell in love with hustling. Jrakkar engaged in small-time stuff to make money and connect with people he felt loved and wanted.
Jrakkar had a toxic childhood relationship, especially with his siblings and aunt, and he took the anger on his mom until he was sent out of the house by his mom. He moved to his dad’s place, which was literally hell on earth. He was deprived of social life, social environment and social interactions. He was locked in the basement and punished on several occasions. This is as a result of his dad’s doctrine, which believes in tough love and parenting. Jrakkar was teased and mocked by other children in the neighborhood as he only had three clothes to wear to school. The children would mock him, saying, “I know what you’re going to wear tomorrow”.
Jrakkar only possessed a pair of shoes which was used to walk to and from school every day. He was denied basic necessities every child should possess, leading to a more dangerous survival instinct to thrive in the suburbs of Detroit.
He started selling drugs to survive and live up to the standard of other children in the neighborhood. He was able to buy good clothes and afford good food. Jrakkar formed a crew with friends in the neighborhood, selling drugs and skipping school together. Fortunately, he was caught by his mom, who transferred him immediately from his dad to her place. unfortunately, it was too late, as Jrakkar had fallen in love with fast money and turning back seemed hard.
At the age of 19, he was arrested after being robbed and set up by some gangs in the neighborhood. His arrest can be defined as an unfortunate one as he hadn’t perpetrated any act that would warrant an arrest before the police came for his arrest.
This was a major turnaround in his life, as he spent two years in prison. His prison stay was horrific, leading to a great transition in his life. He learned that life is too short and that giving up is not an option. Jrakkar’s motto became “Never Give Up” as he started to look at the big picture and have a legacy of where he wanted to himself.
