My name is Jamarius Lee Jones born August 27, 1982 in Pascagoula MS. Ihave been rapping since I was 9 years old with a group called 5DB (5 Dope Brothers). When I Turned 14 I started a group called the South Boyz then at 16 from a group of 5 in the South Boyz slowly evolved into the duo group called 2-Dubb with Patrick Bracey. The name 2-Dubb is an expression meaning we were the chosen ones to still be together and night of armor.
