J Boog of 2000s group B2K is reportedly broke… asking his fans to pay him $1.00!!

J Boog, star of reality series Love & Hip Hop and former member of 2000s R&B group B2K, is reportedly going through tough times. The singer took to Instagram yesterday asking his fans to give him $1.00 each as a birthday gift.

He told fans it was his “birthday soon” and asked them to send him a present. The singer added, “I need some real ones to send at least $1.00 to the cash app.”

Typically, celebrities don’t make such requests to their fans unless they’re going through a financial crisis.

Media Take Out reached out to J Boog’s team and asked for an explanation of his post. So far we haven’t heard from them.


B2K was a boy band active from 1998 to 2004 and again from 2018 to 2019. The group was formed in 1998 by American dance choreographer Dave Scott and Interscope A&R Keshia Gamble. The members consisted of Lil’ Fizz, J-Boog, Raz-B and Omarion. The group released their self-titled debut album on March 12, 2002. The album peaked at number two on the Billboard 200 and number one on the US Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.

The group originally formed in 1998 when Jarell “J-Boog” Houston Sr., De’Mario “Raz-B” Thornton and Dreux “Lil’ Fizz” Frédéric were part of another group called Melodic. On New Year’s Eve 1999, Omari “Omarion” Grandberry was invited to join the band. Together they would adopt the name B2K, an acronym for “Boys of the New Millennium” and a nod to the Y2K era.

In 2001, B2K released their debut single “Uh Huh”, produced by Tricky Stewart. Her debut album, B2K, which also included the singles “Gots ta Be” and “Why I Love You,” reached #2 on the Billboard 200 chart. It was later certified gold. Their 2002 album Pandemonium! debuted at number 10 on the Billboard 200. It included “Bump, Bump, Bump”, a collaboration with P. Diddy, which reached number 1 on the Hot 100 and became the group’s first number one song.

In 2003, the group won a Kids’ Choice Award for Favorite Singing Group. In the same year, all members shot the film You Got Served. In 2004, around the time of the film’s release, B2K exec Chris Stokes announced the group’s split, with their label Epic Records citing internal disagreements as the cause. Lil’ Fizz, Raz-B and J-Boog released a joint statement confirming the end of their professional relationship with Stokes. The trio also said they “just want to”.[ed] to be treated fairly”.
