Jahlil Beats is a young American hip hop producer and a skilled writer of songs who collaborated with almost all highly popular American artist slike Lil Wayne, Chris Brown and 50 Cent.
Jahlil became a very respectable producer so he was soon recognized by Jay Z who was connected with Meek Mill and Lloyd Banks.
As from 2019, he is noted as a Grammy Winner in the category for Best Rap Performance and it was a great reward for him and his hard work.
He was born as Orlando Tucker on February 8, 1988, in a Delaware County city called Chester, located in the state of Pennsylvania, US.
He grew up alongside his brother in the Lampkin Village Housing Projects apartment.
He was dreaming of becoming a star from his earliest age, wishing that his family owned a house and a big yard.
He began developing an interest in music at a very early age and was only 12 when he started learning everything he could about audio engineering and music production.
It was no wonder that he had an interest in music because his father was a musician and a member of a band.
His father was named Orlando and he had gained his name from him. His mother is named Susan Chew and she tried her best to raise her boys.
One of his cousins was also involved in music and both of them motivated Jahlil to enter the world of music.
His mother wanted him to finish college but she also liked him to be occupied with music because she believed that it will keep him away from the bad crowd.
He grew up with his brother Anthony, who is younger than him. After Jahlil learned all about music production and audio creations he taught his younger brother to it.
Orlando was 15 and Anthony was 13 years old when they started making beats and began their music production.
Brothers then gave it away and forwarded it to their high school buddies who rapped over the beats.
After high school, he enrolled college but he lost his financial support and eventually had to drop out.
Although he was unhappy with this he also wanted to try to evolve his music career so he continued with music production trying to find a way to be recognized.
It was in 2008 when he dropped out and came back to his hometown. He was introduced to Meek Mill, a Philadelphian battle rapper who got interested in Jahlil’s music.
They started collaborating very often and Jahlil recognized music as his biggest passion and his potential future career.
He started producing music for local hip-hop artists and became known after he produced tracks for Tyga, also a hip hop artist like Meek Mill.
His first huge deal which brought him recognition was when he was hired to produce a single „Tonight“ for a Brooklyn rapper called Fabolous.
The single was released on his new EP from 2010 „There Is No Competition 2: The Grieving Music“.
In 2011, he collaborated with Meek Mill on his hit single „Ima Boss“. He produced the single and it became his big production hit.
Several record labels started bidding war over Jahlil Beats but he finally decided to sign to Roc Nation, a record label owned by Jay-Z. Meek Mill has also been signed to Roc Nation.
Jahlil began his collaborations with notable artists slike Rihanna, 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes, Bow Wow and more.
He began working with Ernest Dion Wilson, more known as No. I.D. with whom he made a great production.
He also began working on the JayZ album which was legendary for him because not everyone could brag about being involved in the production of an album from such a big star and prominent artist.
In 2012, Jahlil released an EP titled „Legend Music“ which could be downloaded freely and which found followers amongst hip hop enthusiasts.
At the end of 2012, he released his first instrumental mixtape named „Legends Era“ which was very well received amongst the critics.
One month later he released a new mixtape called C. Music 6. In Spring 2013 his next work came out in the form of Legends Era II. This tape had many guest appearances like Busta Rhymes, Lil Wayne, and Game.
His new instrumental mixtape came out a little bit later, in September 2013. It was named „Genius“ and was highly praised by the critics.
In December the same year, he released the „Legends Era III“ mixtape, also filled with guests like Lil Wayne, Tyga, Future, Problem and more.
In 2014 his new mixtape titled „C. Music 7“ was released. One of his biggest successes was the production of „Hot Nigga“ by Bobby Shmurda.
In 2015 he released a collaborative album with CRMC called „God’s Plan“ which was released through Discodogs. 2016 brought another CRMC project called „New Levels, New Devils“.
He is very connected with his community and tries to help it in any way he can. Besides giving money for schools he opened a sneaker store in his home town.
He is working with „Kognition“, a start-up company to rebuild Chester with Smart technology which will make the town more secure.
He started learning to DJ in 2014 after he witnessed the performance of the Diplo in Philadelphia.
His new project called „Gratitude“ is in production and since he is a perfectionist it will take time for it to be finished.
He won a Grammy Award in 2019, as one of the producers who worked on a single „Bubblin“ performed by Anderson Paak.
The Award was from the Best Rap Performance category.
Jahlil did not work only in hip hop since he was the main producer of Leona Lewis‘s single named“Trouble”.
The song made it to No.7 on the lead Canadian charts.
As for his personal life, it seems that he leads a very happy life with his family and friends.
He has met a girl named Jacqueline in 2010 and after they were friends for a while they got married in 2013.
He keeps his family life private and kids out of the spotlight and media attention.
They have three children together and Jahlil adores them all. The eldest child is named Aaliyah and she is a huge fan of dancing. The middle child is a daughter named Amari who likes to talk very much.
The youngest child is his son Julian whom Jahlil hopes that will be as passionate in music as he is.
Jahlil is a philanthropist and he is often involved in the execution of charity projects in Chester and Pennsylvania.
In 2017, Jahlil, supported by his wife and family, created the Amari Tucker Charitable Organization.
The organization helps people in need and provides Christmas toys for children and Thanksgiving dinners for those who can not afford it.
In 2016 he formed Tandem Enterprises which hold four companies in it: from Tandem Music Group to Tandem Publishing, Tandem Real Estate Holdings to the Amari Tucker Foundation.
