“I never let them tell me there are any limits,” says an enthusiastic Jet 2 in an in-house interview with Len Springs. Jet 2 discovered his passion for music at an early age through playing drums with his father Jerri Jheto, and listening to several genres of music growing up. Ultimately, this passion led Jet 2 to become the drum technician for Akon where he continually learned from experiences out on tour. Jet 2 began his passion for lyricism at Dorsey High School in Los Angeles, and his overall theme in his music is uncanny truth and confidence in sticking to what you believe in. Born to Nigerian Parents, Hip-Hop was not a part of Jonathan Ihejeto’s life growing up, but the culture would soon become a way of life for the MC. As an early youth, artist such as 2Pac Shakur, Snoop Dogg, The Notorious B.I.G., and Eminem helped shape Jet 2’s love for music, and allowed for Jet to find a unique love for the genre, and the culture. Jet 2 can recall many instances which he; even as a six year old, would just fall in love with the radio. “My dad would drop me off at school every day, and on the way to school would be the only time he allowed me to listen to the radio. He wasn't too fond of Hip-Hop, but for some reason, I just gravitated towards it. Whether it was listening to California Love from 2Pac, or Juicy from The Notorious B.I.G., 92.3, and later 100.3 the beat really generated my love for hip-hop. When my mom didn't let me purchase 'Vol 2.. Life and Times by Jay-Z because of the parental advisory, I knew one day I would be on the other side of the fence.” A great student all throughout his academic life, Jet 2’s life was geared towards his academic success early on, but his love for Hip-Hop is what guided him as he grew older.
