Lyfe Jennings was born on the 3rd June, 1978, in Toledo, Ohio. He has four siblings, and is the middle child of the family.
From an early age, Lyfe was rapping with his brother and two cousins. They called themselves ‘The Dotsons”, but the dream was short lived when Jennings was sent to prison at 14 years old for a total sentence of 10 years.
Jennings was sent to prison for involvement in a revenge plot against a rival drug dealer; which ended in a young mother being killed, and he had to completely start over in 2002 when he was released from prison.
It was only two days after Lyfe’s release from prison before he recorded a four-song demo CD. He was incredibly quick to act in his pursuit of success after being away for so long.
After a month post release, he performed at the Apollo. He was booed as he walked onto the stage, but when the Apollo audience heard his gritty falsetto and lyrical songwriting, they were swayed to the tune of five amateur-night victories in a row.
Lyfe sold about 1,000 copies of his four-song demo CD during his Apollo “residency.” His growing success, influenced Lyfe to move to New York City and pursue a major-label deal.
Columbia Records provided him with a contract and released his debut, Lyfe 268-192 in August 2004. He went one to release many more albums, and achieve his net worth of $500 thousand.
