J-One – Hillz Of Darkness

Gangs are part of history and for some it was the only life they knew. Legendary stories are told of the inception of gangs and how they migrated to various regions to become their own entities. For Tacoma it was the notorious Hilltop neighborhood which during the eighties and nineties was as active as could be. Like a scene from a movie things like death, robbery, drugs, and drive-bys were a daily occurrence for members of the Hilltop Crips. J-One was an artist coming up in the neighborhood and who better to tell the story of how life was on the Hill than someone who saw it first hand. Like many other artists at the time glorification of street life through music allowed some to have at the very least local stardom and the few fortunate were able to thrive into an actual career. J-One’s debut album “Hillz Of Darkne$$” is a Tacoma classic that was produced entirely by him and is a storybook of his life during this time period. The thirteen track album only featured two guest appearances from Lil Lazy and Lil J$1.
