I’ll let Illi explain this one:

We all love seeing artist work, and create their masterpieces but often times are not granted the access to see such amazing creativity come together, and become what is shared with the world.Over the past 4 months Marcus Smith followed me enough to film and study the process. This documentary is the result of that observation. The making of Inhale Pt.4: Horai.

Tree – It’s Me (Disappear)

| November 21, 2011 | 0 Comments

The Tree buzz grows more and more by the day. Critics and random rap fans have been popping up out of the woodwork quite frequently to quiz me about the Project Mayhem rapper. Well, it appears he’s currently down in Atlanta working and perhaps living. I’m not 100% certain on that, but I do know he has a project on the way with electronic DJ So What. This is the first leak from that mixtape. It’s him!

Former C.O.G. Member Convicted of Trafficking 12-Year-Old Girls

| November 21, 2011 | 14 Comments

Datqunn Sawyer, also known as P-Child, formerly of rap group Chilldrin Of Da Ghetto; was convicted of trafficking girls as young as 12 years old today. He faces a mandatory minimum of 15 years behind bars, and possibly a life sentence. Chilldrin Of Da Ghetto were signed to Mack 10′s Hoo-Bangin’ imprint in the late 90s and released one album nationally, their self-titled debut in 1999.

Fox Chicago Reports:

Chicago – Chicago pimp Datqunn Sawyer was convicted Monday of trafficking girls as young as 12 — forcing them into prostitution and keeping them in the profession through beatings and violent threats.

Sawyer, 32, faces a mandatory minimum of 15 years behind bars following a trial that exposed the violent underworld of forced sex trafficking in Chicago.

The jury deliberated several hours beginning Friday afternoon following a two-week trial in U.S. District Court. The trial showed that Sawyer was a pimp who chose vulnerable victims, including girls who were young, homeless, or runaways, and used violence and threats of violence to exploit them sexually, knowing that they were minors.

Sawyer, 32, remains in federal custody without bond and faces a maximum sentence of life in prison on each count, as well as a mandatory minimum of 15 years on nine of the counts. U.S. District Judge Charles Kocoras scheduled sentencing for Feb. 23, 2012.

Testimony at the trial showed a similar pattern: the girls were 12 to 17 when Sawyer befriended them.

The girls, who often said they fell in love with him, were given names beginning with “P,” after his own nickname, “P Child,” and branded with “P Child” tattoos or with Sawyer’s favorite saying after girls handed him cash from the day: “Chedda make it betta.”
