Lyfe Jennings

Lyfe Jennings is talented, amazing, story teller with that true R&B soul sound. As I’m sitting here listening to all of his music, I am truly astonished how his lyrics tell a story. This forty year old singer-songwriter, record producer and instrumentalist from Toledo, Ohio has had his struggles throughout his life. He served for 10 years for felony arson that was in 1992. He was released from prison in 2002 and his debut album was out in 2004. It was called “Lyfe 268-192”. It went platinum. I really like this album, it is soulful and he is singing about his life struggles. Even though he has put out 4 more albums since his debut he seems to still struggle in his personal life. In 2008 he got into an argument with the mother of his child. The singer kicked down the door of a house in Smyrna, Georgia, in an attempt to find Joy Pound and later fired a gun outside. Smyrna police reported a 2005 Corvette fleeing the scene, and Jennings was caught after a high-speed chase that ended when the singer smashed the vehicle. He refused a sobriety test. Jennings was handed misdemeanor charges of criminal trespass, discharging a firearm near a public highway and refusal to take a DUI test, in addition to two felony counts of attempting to elude an officer and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He served 2 years (2010-2012). Even though with all his challenges Lyfe Jennings is an amazing talent that is so underrated. It was hard for me to choose my favorite songs from Lyfe Jennings but I put together a small list and here it is, “Hypothetically”, “Must Be Nice”, “Never Never Land”, “Let's Stay Together”, “Stick Up Kid”, “Will I Ever”, “Cry”, “If Tomorrow Never Comes”, “Goodbye”, “I'll Always Love You”, “ABCs”, "Haters", "Hero", “It Coulda Been Worse”, “26 years, 17 days”, “Made Up My Mind” and “She Got Kids”.
