Former Death Row Records recording artist SKG recently dropped a self-published memoir about her dealings in the music biz, filled with tales of Nipsey Hussle, Maino, Chamillionaire and others.
SKG (real name: Helecia Choyce) was once part of the next generation of Death Row Records, who Suge Knight said would be one of the label’s priorities upon his prison release in 2001, alongside Kurupt, Crooked I and the late Left Eye.
But, everyone knows how the story goes … as Death Row fizzled due to lawsuits and blackballing. She did, however, pop up on tracks from Tupac’s posthumous Until The End of Time album, as well as Tha Dogg Pound’s 2002 release
Now, nearly a decade later, SKG has published a book titled The Diary of Helecia Choyce: The Hustle Within Part 1.
In the self-published book she details accounts of dealing with rappers such as Jim Jones, Nipsey Hussle and Young Jeezy.
According to a press release, “The drama-filled tales range from a pregnant Choyce being jumped into a gang at the behest of fellow L.A. rapper Nipsey Hussle, heated altercations with both Maino and Chamillionaire, sneaking onto a highly secured movie set in order to meet uber star Will Smith, dealing with Mariah Carey’s notorious diva-like behavior, working with media/TV personality Wendy Williams, getting acquainted with famed director Quentin Tarantino.”
The book is availble now at various online retailers including Amazon.com.
