Early life and Career
In Nashville, Tennessee, Jason DeFord (Jelly Roll) was born in 1986. He was given the moniker JellRoll by his mother. In the challenging life events he encountered, music became his form of rehabilitation.
Thanks to his successful YouTube duet “Pop Another Pill” with Lil Wyte, which has had 6.5 million views to date, Jelly Roll earned widespread notoriety in 2010.
His song was so well-liked that the hip-hop group SNO used it as the basis for their album Year Round a year later. The Hypnotize Minds label released the album in April 2011. Juicy J and DJ Paul produced it. According to XXL, “Come Here White Girl” was one of “The 10 Most Memorable White Rapper Collaborations.”
After releasing a number of mixtapes, including Therapeutic Music and the Whiteboy series, he went on to release his 2012 solo studio album The Big Sal Story as well as other albums with other artists.
Whiskey, Weed, & Women was a mixtape that Jelly Roll published in 2013; it was originally titled Whiskey, Weed, & Waffle House. When a restaurant with the same name threatened legal action, the name was quickly altered. Because music is so much more well-liked than local establishments, if a rapper even gives a song with the same name as, say, a restaurant in town, it might completely eliminate the establishment’s listings for its handcrafted goods.
Jelly Roll changed the mixtape’s name to avoid trouble.
However, Jelly Roll being Jelly Rill, he chose to replace the Waffle House emblem with a “stop and desist” stamp.
Jelly has previously worked with artists like Haystak on songs like Strictly Business and Business As Usual, as well as Lil Wyte on No Filter. 2020 saw the release of Jelly Roll’s 14th studio album, which debuted at number 97 on the US Billboard 200. Other rappers on the album include Lil Wyte, Struggle Jennings, and Tech N9ne.
Jelly Roll has accumulated an estimated $4.5 million in career earnings. Roll had to pay about 38% in taxes on his career income because he resides in Illinois. His career earnings are thought to be around $2.79 million after taxes, after paying $1.71 million in taxes.
Jelly Roll is single and doesn’t have any kids. He probably spent $800,000 of his career earnings on his personal expenses, but he also made $150,000 from investments. Additionally, he would have had to pay about $350,000 in expenses for his business. Consequently, it is assumed that Jelly Roll is worth about $1.8 million.
