Chicago Native & Former Death Row Artist Jewell has Passed Away at the age of 53

Jewell was a Chicago native who migrated out to California in the late 80s. Jewell said she met Suge Knight in Torrance, California, where N.W.A. was recording. Suge was a bodyguard for the group and introduced her to Dr. Dre.

She started off on Eazy E’s Ruthless Records and sang on N.W.A.’s “I’d Rather Fck You.” She then appeared on “Let Me Ride” and “Btches Ain’t Sh*t” from Dr. Dre’s The Chronic. The singer then followed that up by appearing on “What’s My Name” and “Gin And Juice” from Snoop Doggy Dogg’s Doggystyle. She had her own hit which was called “Woman To Woman,” which reached #72 on the Billboard Top 100.

“I was never seen, but my voice was heard,” Jewell said in an interview with The Art Of Dialogue. “I was a juicy girl, and they wanted a slim-jim,” she added. “So you never really saw me in any videos.” Jewell stated that she ” was never upset with the process, but I was mad that my album really never came out.”

No word has come out on the cause of death, she was 53 years old.
