Although not uncommon for rappers to move from music to film, Omarion is one of few rappers who started in film and then moved into a solo music. Omarion’s first dabbled in fame when he appeared in the 2004 film You Got Served. He was also in Kellogg’s cereal commercials and McDonald’s commercials prior to ever releasing any form of music album. Prior to silver screen fame, however, Omarion sang in the short-lived R&B group B2K. Of the 4 members of B2k, Omarion is the only one to really hit it big after the group broke up. Omarion released his first solo in 2005 with the aid of rap mogul Timbaland. The album hit #1 on the Billboard 200 upon release, making Omarion an instant sensation. However, he could not give up his acting bug, spending more of his time starring in films than in producing music. Between 2004 and present, Omarion has starred or appeared in 7 films and 6 television shows. He has subsequently released 6 albums, the most recent being Reasons. Although unmarried, Omarion has two children, a boy and a girl, with his girlfriend, Apryl Jones.
