The co-leader "Dolla" William "Dolla" Chapman II is known as the "quick tempered, rapping, dancer", who believes that Da Jammies do not practice enough and seems to have a short fuse with his bandmates. However that is all balanced out with the co-leader of the group "Novelist" Aulsondro "Novelist" Hamilton the "peace keeping, rapping best friend" who always have a solution for the crews success. The rest of the members of Da Jammies are "Momo" Alisa Reyes the "one with the universe" earthy poet with a bubbly personality, then theres "LaLa" Dani Nicolet the "Singing Diva" who believes in no one but herself that can sometimes be very rude and unapologetic without realizing it. Then there is "Seven" Anderson Johnson Jr. the "soulful crooner" that is alway trying to be helpful and has two loves in his life, "LaLa" and food.

Everyday Da Jammies take on issues that plagues the youth, from "Homelessness", to "Bullying", to "Self-Awareness", to "Obesity"and the real meaning of friends and more, the underlying premise of the show is "unity" and "doing it together" although their non-talented nemesis "The Battlebrats" whose leaders "Mike Fresh" Kel Mitchell and "Smalls" Shane Tsurugi are constantly seeking ways to out do "Da Jammies" and most time failing.
