On Star Patrol, although popular as an MVP player in his school, Pinoy Big Brother 737 housemate Jimboy Martin said he wants to be known as a rapper more than a basketball player. His idol is Filipino rapper Gloc-9.
On June 17, Jimboy showcased his talent in rapping on It’s Showtime. Vice Ganda and Anne Curtis accompanied him onstage as his back-up dancers.
He was noticed during the auditions because of the same talent. A sample of his rapped introduction goes, “Tubong Nueva Viscaya na magpapasaya/ Gagawin ang lahat ng aking makakaya/ Upang balang araw makatulong sa pamilya.”
