Real Name:
Omar Jarel Gilyard
Born in Brooklyn as Omar Jarel Gilyard, future producer/MC Jneiro Jarel spent the early part of his childhood moving around the country due to his mother's job in the U.S. Army, before settling down in Houston, TX in 1985, where his cousin "DJ Starr" put him on to hip hop.

At the age of 14, he formed a group which he produced called "The Slum Kids" aka “Rhythmic Crew” ('92). This group consisted of Aahtue and Nahuma. In 1998, Jneiro Jarel left the group and relocated to New York. In 2003 he was discovered by Hank Shocklee (Public Enemy) and opened up for Julie Dexter at Hank's event "Soul Vibration".
