Identical twin brothers “Mr. R.e.p” (often referred to as Repezent) and “QB-the Classic” (Quiet Boy) of Family Affair were born Jarrett and Jason Jones, respectively, on November 16,1985 to a single mother. They were raised on the North side of St. Louis, Missouri. Their family life was filled with a variety of music ranging from gospel to hip-hop. This early exposure to music led Family Affair to musical artistry as a form of expression. In their youth, their mother worked long hours in an effort to make ends meet. Rep and QB were often left home alone, and their reliance on one another created an unbreakable bond between them. During their early years, it was not unusual to find the brothers spending time in the streets with friends. Being surrounded by friends and influences that filled their lives with music and hip-hop culture, their interactions awakened the twins love for hip-hop. This love led to the creation of Family Affair. The group began writing thought-provoking lyrics and adding them to head-bobbing beats. Shortly after graduating from high school, they began performing at local venues and recording their work. Hip-hop heavy hitters including OutKast, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, and particularly Tupac influenced Family Affair. However, the young duo has created and defined a unique flavor.
