Jaden was born August 6, 2002, in Kansas City, Mo to Latasha Frazier and Benjamin James.
Jaden was educated in the Independence school district and graduated from Truman High School. From the age of 4 to 18 he was involved in sports, from t-ball to karate, to football and others in between. He was a mentee of High Aspirations from 16-18 years of age.

For a short time he worked with developmentally disabled adults and appreciated that he was able to provide care to those in need. During his adolescent years, Jaden began to pursue his dream of becoming an entrepreneur and started his entrepreneurial endeavors as a business apparel designer, but most important to him – he was a rap artist known as “Dirtyboy Jay.”
Jaden enjoyed going to the studio, listening to different beats, and writing lyrics for his rap songs. He loved spending time with his friends and family.
