*Grammy weekend in Los Angeles means that means that your favorite celebrities and entertainers were out and about attending events and party hopping.
EURweb correspondent Jill Munroe attended the All Def and Republic Records screening event for the debut of their premium docuseries ALL IN featuring Jacquees and Asian Doll.
ALL IN takes a cinematic look at turning points in the lives of emerging artists. Jacquees reveals how the influence of men from his local barbershop led to the start of his singing career.
Asian Doll shared the story of her rise, which included the Dallas rapper starting on Instagram, becoming popular with thousands of social media followers, even though she was struggling financially, sleeping with her mattress on the floor. She also shares the hardships of life in the streets, and the death of a close friend changing her life’s outlook.

She also shared how her mother’s fingerprints cover every aspect of her career, including the rap lyrics she pens.
“My mother groomed me to be who I am today. As far as what she said (in the series) can’t nobody tell me anything, it really helped me with the industry because I didn’t come in like a sucker. Like I’m slow or dumb. I said I want this, I want that. If they are going to give it to me, than I’m going to take it. She taught me everything that I know, from raps on. Everything.”
Following the screening, series director Mandon Lovett was asked why it was important to him as a director to tell these stories.
“I Have no other intention than to put out the best story, that’s inspirational and can change people’s lives. I hope that every person no matter what walk of life can pull something that they can use to inspire them.”
There are four episodes in the series, in addition to Asian Doll and Jacquees, Key Glock and Wifisfuneral will be highlighted as well. ALL IN drops on All Def Music’s YouTube and Facebook every Friday starting on February 15.
