Jackson has acted in television series such as My So-Called Life, Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper, and The Steve Harvey Show. She has also appeared in the feature films Good Burger and Love and Basketball. She also became known for being one of the contestants in the MTV reality television competition series Celebrity Rap Superstar. Her rapper mentor on the show is MC Lyte.
