He has two brothers, Darryl and Sharif, and a sister Kareema. His brother Darryl is also a rapper under the name Doughboy, which is the nickname of the character his father portrayed, Darin "Doughboy" Baker, in his first film Boyz n the Hood.

Jackson is noted for his physical resemblance to his father, which Ice Cube described as "spot on." "He was born to play the part," he told Jimmy Kimmel in October 2014.
