How did JJ Da Boss Make His Money & Wealth?
Born on August 10, 1973, in Memphis, Tennessee, Jonathan Day aka “JJ Da Boss” was brought up in a small Arkansas town called Joiner. Ever since he was young, he has been passionate about cars—particularly muscle cars. By the time he was ten years old, he had started to drive and race on the dirt roads around Mississippi County. Due to the fact that his family was not well off, he often hustled on the side to make money.
Sometime after graduating from Rivercrest High School in 1992, purchased his first vehicle—a “66” Chevy II Nova. Lacking the money and parts to participate at the race tracks, he eventually took up street racing. Just as his career was taking off, however, a few questionable decisions landed him behind bars. In the end, he was incarcerated for eight years, before being released.
Many years later, JJ Da Boss made his television debut in an episode of Street Outlaws titled, Street Mission which aired on December 26, 2016. In its eighth season at the time, the show is popular as it offers viewers an inside glimpse into the world of street racing.
