Jhené Aiko was born in Los Angeles, California and comes from a multicultural family. Her mother, Christina Yamamoto, is Japanese, Spanish, Afro-Dominican and her father, Dr. Karamo Chilombo, is African American, Jewish, Native American (Yaqui, Choctaw,Cherokee, Navajo). She mostly says she’s Black/African American, Japanese, Native American, but identifies with all of her ethnicities.

Her older sisters Miyoko and Jamila were in the group Gyrl and toured with Immature, who were signed to MCA/Silas records.

She served as the opening act for B2K on the Scream Tour 3.
