Most people know of Newark, New Jersey as being rough around the edges and extreamly tough in the seams. A born resident of nwk, nj, Jameel inherited the name Point Blank at a very young age, and growing up in the era of artist living what they rap about the name fit him perfectly. Like most young black men growing up in the ghetto Point Blank aspired to be a rap artist before puberty even approached, but with a struggling mother, father in prison and siblings starving it was only a matter of time before he would pick up a gun, get hit with consignment and flood the streets with drugs. After getting shot, being sentenced to prison terms multiple times, hit by a car and left for dead, Jameel finally said enough is enough and made the decision to pursue music full time. While many people say," we're born to die' Point Blank, insist that he was born to live and is determined to prove it through his artistry.
