After making their much-heralded debut on, then, mentor Ice Cube’s break-out solo LP, AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted, Los Angeles, California, based rappers; J-Dee, Shorty and T-Bone, collectively known as Da Lench Mob, soon embarked on a musical journey of their very own. The controversial trio, who had strong ties with the Nation of Islam, later unleashed their gold certified, 1992, Street Knowledge debut, Guerillas In Tha Mist.
While recording what was to be their sophomore collection, Planet Of Da Apes, tragedy struck. In 1994, in a strange turn of events, group member J-Dee [born Da Sean Cooper], was charged with the murder of Scott Charles. Although both were separate incidents, both Cooper and T-Bone were arrested and charged with murder in two separate incidents. While T-Bone would be acquitted in his case, Cooper is currently serving 29 years to life. While incarcerated, J-Dee has been writing books and still making music. He is also trying to get his jail case revised. J-Dee should be out by the year 2023 or 2024.
