Dominick Newton (August 12, 1977 – February 2, 2015), better known by his stage name The Jacka, was an American rapper and father from Pittsburg, California. The Jacka got his start with his group, Mob Figaz,[2] 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. On February 2, 2015, he was fatally shot by an unidentified gunman in Oakland on 94th Avenue and MacArthur Boulevard.[3] Prior to his death, he owned his own label The Artist Records.[4]

Early career[edit]

His career began with the Pittsburg group Mob Figaz. Their first album, C-Bo's Mob Figaz, released in 1999 was a minor hit on the Billboard Hip Hop chart entering in at #63, but it sold fairly well making 160,000 units sold.[5] 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.[6] 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.
