Music career

Jones was a founding member of R&B group Immature/IMx, which included members Marques "Batman" Houston and Kelton "LDB" Kessee and was managed by Chris Stokes. Jones' nickname at this time was "Romeo". The group released four albums under the name Immature: On Our Worst Behavior (1992), Playtyme Is Over (1994), We Got It (1995) and The Journey (1997). In 1999, the group underwent a name change and continued on to release two albums under the name IMx: Introducing IMx (1999) and IMx (2001). The group also branched out into film (such as House Party 4: Down to the Last Minute) and television (such as A Different World) before disbanding in 2002.

Food for Thought

In 2004, Jones began pursuing a solo career. Under the name Young Rome, he released his debut album on June 24, 2004 entitled Food for Thought. The album featured the singles "After Party" (featuring former B2K member Omarion) and "Freaky" (featuring rapper Guerilla Black).

Round 1

In 2005, Jones continued to work with former bandmate Marques Houston. He made a guest appearance on Houston's album Naked (2005) in a song entitled "All Because of You". Jones had also begun work on a project tentatively titled, Round 1, which was set to see a release in 2006. Two contending singles were released but failed to obtain the media attention Jones' label had hoped for thus resulting a cancellation of the album.

Eye condition

Throughout most of his career with Immature/IMx, Jones wore an eye patch over his right eye, leading to speculation that Jones had an eye condition. However, Jones later clarified the situation in a verse from his song "Look Down On Me", featured on his debut album Food For Thought:

Jones has also stated that he was hit in the eye with a book.
