James's Social Media:


James Tucker was born on August 23, 2013, in New Orleans, Los Angeles. His mother, Micquell, has been overseeing his career; she has also been the one taking care of him. Tucker began his YouTube career after his mother shared a video of him arguing with her. The video went viral, and millions of people were impressed by young Tucker’s ability to think, reason, and express himself. Tucker’s communication skills and funny personality earned him a seat on one of the biggest talk shows in America.

When Tucker appeared on “The Steve Harvey Show,” Harvey asked him questions related to love. Little Tucker had some funny responses for Harvey, and Harvey’s audience roared with laughter as he expressed his ideas. After the conversation, Harvey awarded Tucker the Junior Love Officer or J.L.O. Later, the boy appeared on another edition of Harvey’s show in his new capacity as the J.L.O. and gave people gift ideas for celebrating Valentine’s day.

Tucker has a Youtube channel dedicated to conversations with his mother and his sister, where he gives them advice or lets them know his thoughts about matters. He told his mother he needed a credit card in one viral video. When asked why he said everyone had one and believed it was only fair that he got one too. Tucker also shares videos of his life on his Instagram account. In 2020, Tucker’s mother took to Instagram Live to explain that her son’s manager gave her son bad advice and almost destroyed his career. Soon after, the situation was resolved, and Tucker got a new agent.
