Shock G, born Gregory Jacobs, was born in Brooklyn N.Y. But his heart has always been in Tampa, where he spent most of his childhood. He was there at the moment of his death, and he was laid to rest there, as well.
Jacobs started Digital Underground with Chopmaster J and the late Kenny-K in the 1987 after relocating from the East Coast to Oakland, California.
