On joining the studio, at first, Jacquees merely blended with the team. He wasn’t given the opportunity to stand out, shine and show his true talents. He was getting discouraged by the fact that there was some much work going on in the studio, but none of them was for him. At that time, hiss’ sole attention was on Rap, not R&B. In the summer of 2009, Block finally witnessed the raw talents of Jacquees. Block then shifted his vision towards Jacquees and started working more closely with him. Jacquees gained exposure immediately with the release of his first single “Krazy”. The single featured Grand Hustle’s own T.I., a famous American hip-hop artist of the time.
