Jahking Guillory was born on the 14th of May 2001 in Moreno Valley, Riverside County. He was raised alongside his younger sister. As a young boy, Jahking was heavily involved in athletics and played for the Inland Empire Ducks before being enlisted to Snoop Dog’s junior championships team. Jahking trained alongside his teammates and they were able to win five championships.
Besides his involvement in the football team, Jahking also ran track and won gold twice at the Junior Olympics. While Jahking was heavily invested in sports, he did not ignore his education because he believed it was his only way to secure a future.
At the age of 12, Jahking’s parents separated and they were forced to move to Long Beach, California. Unlike his previous neighborhood, Long Beach was a rougher place to live and Jahking was inspired to do better to give his family a better life. He immediately began focusing on his acting career and landed his first big role. Jahking, however, admits that his father was involved and amazing but the family split had heavily affected his mother and sister and he had felt the need to step up.
Unlike most child actors, Jahking was not born with a silver spoon in his mouth and a room full of opportunities. Although he had landed small roles here and there from the time he was six, it took him intense work to receive a lead role for his debut film. For the most part, his acting had taken a back seat for his athletic venture to shine and he had only felt the need to revive it after his parent’s separation.
Jahking gained widespread popularity when he was featured in the coming of age film ‘Kicks.’ His portrayal of Brandon stunned fans and painted a picture of what growing up in the rough side of town is like. Jahking later opened up about feeling connected to the character as he had felt like an outsider since moving to Long Beach and knew how quickly violence could erupt and lives could be lost lost due to material things. He also opened up about losing his friend, Kishan, to a street thug who had stabbed him 17 times for failing to surrender his backpack on his way home from school.
Jahking has since broadened his range in the industry. Although he still portrays characters that have fallen victim to their surroundings, he is open to different roles. Jahking has since been cast in the film ‘Smartass’ and landed roles on the series ‘The Chi,’ ‘On My Block,’ ‘Black Lightning,’ ‘Five Points,’ and ‘Insecure.’
Despite his blooming career in acting, Jahking also pursues music. Although most fans classify him as a rapper, he would rather stay under the title artist as he feels he is diverse. Jahking continues to navigate the entertainment industry with grace and has amassed a solid fan base. He has achieved a great level of success despite being active for a short time and fans can’t wait to see what else he has up his sleeve.
Despite being a young and upcoming name in the industry, Jahking keeps most of his life private and only gives fans a sneak peek of his new projects and travel adventures.
