“I biked across America, and I did my Ironman and Nike was like, Charlie, we see you,” he told TMZ. “And they said that they had a surprise for me. And they put me in what I believe is the most culturally shifting ad campaign of all time. The 30-year Just Do It Nike campaign, it’s just an honor to be in it. Respect.”

– HIP HOP WIRED

“Jabaley describes the different phases of his life as character roles. Today, he’s “Charlie Rocket,” but once he was “CEO Charlie,” an adolescent brain tumor survivor and budding music mogul hoping business acumen would compensate for his obesity. By his late 20s, he was a hip-hop titan. It was not an act. Jabaley built a multimillion-dollar music and artist management company called Street Execs. His artists included 2 Chainz and Travis Porter. He was the creator of the instant viral Christmas success “Dabbin’ Santa Sweaters.”

– RUNNERS WORLD

“If Charlie Jabaley 30, comes off strong, it’s because the self-made hip-hop mogul only knows unequivocal commitment to every challenge. When he fails, he fails hard.But his dauntless, wide-smiling spirit rebounds a step ahead. When a band you’ve never heard of fired him, his next beat was to manage an eventual Grammy winner. And when a brain tumor put a floodlight on his failing health, he shed 130 (at last count) pounds and completed an Ironman. His next goal: change a million lives. And he’s really going to do it.”
