Jarell Damonte Houston (born August 11, 1985), known as J-Boog, is an American R&B singer, rapper, and actor. His stage name came from his grandmother calling him "Boogie" because of his love of dancing, and the J is simply the initial of his first name. He has best known as a member of R&B group B2K. He is also the cousin of Marques Houston.
J-Boog was born and raised in Compton, California, and has been rapping, singing, dancing since the age of eight.
He starred in You Got Served, the hit dance movie, with his B2K band mates, along with Marques Houston and Young Rome. He played the character Rico, the peacemaker of the group. Despite the film receiving mostly negative reviews, his performance in the movie was praised by many critics alike.
