"I'm a busy man. Let's make this quick."

Jacob is a character in Def Jam Fight for NY and Def Jam Fight for NY: The Takeover who is a store owner.


Jacob Arabo's passion for jewelry began when he was a young boy growing up in Russia. Just after immigrating to the United States with his family, he enrolled in jewelry design school, hoping to develop his natural talents. Jacob opened a small booth in New York City's bustling diamond district in 1981 and quickly began designing for a number of jewelry brands and private clients. In the mid-1990s an R&B singer named Faith Evans stumbled upon Jacob's shop while shopping for jewelry for her upcoming CD cover. Completely taken in by Jacob's creations, she quickly returned with her husband, The Notorious B.I.G. The couple became loyal customers and recommended Jacob to a host of their friends. The result was that Jacob Arabo became the person to go to for custom jewelry, and got the name "Jacob the Jeweler."
