ILL 4 Life! Our Time, My Story
ILL 4 LIFE! OUR TIME, MY STORY is about my time as an Ill-State Assassin and my group Tha Chamba. What is a Ill-State Assassin you ask. It's an music organization that reigns in the Chicago hip hop golden era in the 80's, 90's and the beyond. It's based on my life in the music industry. The trials and tribulations of thirty members trying to make it big. Friends turns enemies, relationships, feuds with rival crews and family love. Trying to fulfill our dreams and while being nominated for a Grammy award in the process. But most of all, making a mark in the history of urban hip hop music. My first installment in my collection of books with many more to come.
About J. Wrice Sr. (Chicago, Illinois Author)
My name is J. Wrice Sr. I'm one of the founding members of the ill-state assassins music group out of Chicago. During the 80's, 90's to the mid 2000's i was in the hip hop music industry. Producing music, doing and writing music. These elements will help me as i transition into becoming an author. Writing music and writing books are very similar. In both, stories are told, rather it's fiction or non fiction to capture the listeners and reader's mind. Venturing into being a author is not a easy task. But i love a challenge and i'm always up for it. So, enjoy this journey with me as i continue to grow and live up to the expectation as a author.
A native of Chicago, Illinois. I was born December 11 of the year 1970. I always had a passion for writing. Being homeless at a time of my life and dealing with the streets, the hip hop scene was my home. One of the four horsemen who created the Chicago music crew the ill-state assassins and being a member of the Grammy nominated group they chamba. I always strive for excellence. But my life adventure doesn’t ends there.
Coming from being an emcee to becoming an author is apparent because both pertains the same guidelines. As an emcee tell the story through pen and paper that’s set to music, an author tells the story through pen and paper that is set to book form. Capturing the ears and minds now i prepared to capture the mind and imagination of readers. I always been humble to my musical success at the time and now i'm the same way learning and growing being an author. Hopefully my books will draw your attention and you become a fan of my writing.
