Basketball career[edit]

Jahidi White attended high school at Cardinal Ritter College Prep. While at Ritter, White teamed with future Duke University player Chris Carrawell, and ex-NBA player Loren Woods. He subsequently attended and played basketball at Georgetown University, where he played with Allen Iverson and Othella Harrington, two other future NBA players. He was drafted in 1998 in the 2nd round (43rd overall) by the Washington Wizards.

In 2003, Washington traded White to the Phoenix Suns for Brevin Knight and, in the following season, he was selected by the Charlotte Bobcats in the expansion draft, and waived in February 2005. He was signed for 2006-2007 by the Cleveland Cavaliers, but was released during preseason. Injuries limited his playing time and mobility. During his career, he averaged 5.9 PPG, 1.1 BPG, 0.2 APG and 5.8 RPG.

Acting career[edit]

In 2007, White appeared in the Sci Fi Channel original movie Alien vs. Alien, aka Showdown at Area 51, playing a hulking alien warrior intent on destroying all life on Earth. He had no spoken lines in this film.[1]

Nelly mentioned him at the end of his hit song St. Louie.
