Dominic Newton (born August 12, 1977), better known by his stage name The Jacka, is an American rapper from Oakland, California. The Jacka got his start in Pittsburg, California with his group, Mob Figaz,[1] whose first album, C-Bo's Mob Figaz, was released in 1999. Newton converted to Islam at a young age and changed his name to Shaheed Akbar. He currently runs his own label entitled The Artist Records.[2]

Early career[edit]

He began his career with the Pittsburg group Mob Figaz, their first album, C-Bo's Mob Figaz, was released in 1999 and was a minor hit on the Billboard Hip Hop chart entering in at #63 but it sold fairly well making 160,000 units sold.[3] His first solo release Jacka of the Mob Figaz in 2001 sold over 30,000 units. Jacka sold these units himself, in the Bay Area and shipping to one-stops across the country. Though great support came from the Bay Area, sixty percent of Jacka's sales came from outside of California.[4] In 2005 The Jacka released his second solo album The Jack Artist but failed to chart. In 2009 the Jacka came out with his third solo album "Tear Gas" making it #93 on the billboard chart.
