Bobb'e Jacques Thompson, a child star turned rapper, is better known for his roles as Stanley on “That's So Raven,” and Ronnie Shields in the film “Role Models.” These days, he’s part of the cast on Nick Cannon’s “Wild N Out,” and he’s also working on his music career.


Thompson started his career at 5 when he took the stage as part of “Showtime at the Apollo” and enchanted the audience with his version of Bow Wow's "That's My Name.”


After that, he went on to take small roles on TV series like “The Tracy Morgan Show,” “Steve Harvey's Big Time Challenge,” “My Wife and Kids,” “Human Giant,” “Just Jordan” and “30 Rock.”

His roles on “That’s So Raven” and “Role Models” left an impression on the audience, cementing his presence on the mainstream entertainment industry by appearing on TV commercials, and leading him to take on more shows and films at the time.


He also became the host of a short-lived television series titled “Bobb'e Says,” which aired on the Cartoon Network block CN Real.


In 2013, Bobb’e released his first ever EP, “Fade 2 Rap,” under the rapper moniker King Bobb'e J, and the following year, he took his first leading role in the film “School Dance.”


Nowadays, Thompson is part of the cast of Nick Cannon's MTV improv comedy show “Wild 'N Out,” and he’s also working hard on releasing freestyle recordings on his Soundcloud and Instagram pages, as he says music is his true passion.

"I still to this day have a divine love for music," he told Bossip in 2014. And added:

"I got a lot of music in the can that I'm gonna hit the people over the head with here soon, but everything is about timing. At this time, acting is where it's at for me and when it's time for me to release the music, ya'll hear it, ya'll know."


On a recent interview with The Shade Room, Thompson admitted that one of the struggles he faced while making the transition from childhood star to adult, was people not fully grasping that he has grown up.


“I think when you grow up in the spotlight, it takes people time to grasp the concept of you actually being grown because they fell in love with you as a child. So it takes them time to let go and actually view you as an adult,” he said.


Thompson also mentioned that working on “Wild ‘N Out” has been one of the “most fun jobs” he’s ever had, adding, “I’m a natural sh*t talker, so improv is second nature to me, so it’s a blessing to be able to be on a show that allows me just to be me.”


The 23-year-old just released a video of a freestyle verse he did to Pierre Bourne’s “Nikes” instrumental, called “Gang.”

The song will be on all platforms on May 10th.
