From 1992 through 1996, Jewell was contracted to Death Row Records.
In 1994, she recorded Shirley Brown’s song “Woman to Woman,” which peaked at #16 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and 72nd on the Billboard Hot 100.
She’s been dubbed “The First Lady of Death Row Records” and has referred to herself as such.
Jewell co-wrote and self-published My Blood, My Sweat, My Tears with Felicia St. Jean in 2011, fueling allegations of Dr. Dre’s homosexuality and persons involved in Tupac Shakur’s murder.
According to Daz Dillinger, Jewell died at the age of 54.
After flying to meet Puff Daddy in 2021, Jewell highlighted tensions within Death Row Records. Jewell was apparently persuaded to write for Total by the CEO of Bad Boy Records, which included a trip to New York City.
According to the singer, she attended the VIBE magazine party and spoke with the Bad Boy crew just moments before Biggie Smalls was fatally slain.
Outside of Death Row, Jewell reconnected with Snoop and Dre on “Just Dippin'” in 1998.
My Blood, My Sweat, My Tears, was Jewell’s self-published book in 2011. WideAwake, who previously owned Death Row, published a soundtrack and a cover of Black Diamond.
