Shaquill Griffin and his girlfriend Tokyo Jetz have welcomed the newest addition to their brood. The Grand Hustle goddess has evolved from humble poetry on social media to viral fame and addictive music videos with millions of streams. And she’s making a niche in fashion, too. So, if you aren’t already following her, this Tokyo Jetz wiki will spur you to click that follow button.

Tokyo Jetz’s Family and Early Life

Tokyo Jetz’s real name is Shauntrell Pender. He was born on October 26, 1994, in Jacksonville, Florida, but later moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where she was raised.

Her parents divorced, and she mainly lived with her father, two older brothers, and her younger sister. One of her brothers, Darrell Pender, aspired to be a rap artist, too.

Pender’s old social media activity reveals that the siblings are tight. One of her brothers helped her buy her first car when she didn’t have credit.

And when she wrecked it along with her brother’s credit, he didn’t even ask for compensation. But Pender later made it up to him by buying him a new car in 2020.

Pender’s siblings also dote on her son. And they for sure will adore her newest addition, too.

Tokyo Jetz’s Career

Shauntrell Pender’s calling was always meant to be music. A rapper and songwriter, her freestyle rap to Yo Gotti’s “DM” was a viral hit on social media.

Tokyo Jetz went on to release her 2016 mixtape, Flyy Shit Only. It got the attention of hip-hop mogul T.I., who signed her to his record label, Grand Hustle.

Touted as the queen of the Hustle Gang, Tokyo Jetz toured and performed nationwide with T.I., Young Dro, Trae Tha Truth, and other Hustle Gang artists. She released her debut album in 2017 under the aptly-titled label, Viral.

While her first album detailed her rise from social media to becoming a bonafide recording artist, Tokyo Jetz’s 2021 album, Cancel Culture, was inspired by her scandal at that time.

In the aftermath of George Floyd’s disproportionate death and with social justice at the forefront, Tokyo Jetz’s insensitive joke got the ire of internet denizens. Although she apologized, the rapper stated that being at the center of the cancel culture movement led her to create her album.

Tokyo Jetz’s Relationships and Kids

Tokyo Jetz’s esthetician informed her during a routine wax session that she might be pregnant. The rapper checked, and her esthetician’s observation was spot-on. Her son, named Amir, was born on September 16, 2019.

Tokyo Jetz dropped a single named after her son the day before he was born. And it remains one of her most viewed music videos on YouTube.

The rapper is usually low-key about her relationships. Moreover, her commitment to keeping the identity of Amir’s father a secret has sparked a few online jokes, including some from Tokyo Jetz herself.

Tokyo Jetz was romantically linked to NFL pro Dalvin Cook. But that is an unfounded rumor at best.

The NFL pro she is undoubtedly in a relationship with is Shaquill Griffin. It is speculated that they’ve been together since the cornerback played with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2021, and she was at her hometown team’s game. Furthermore, they’ve appeared on each other’s Instagram pages since early 2022.
