Deacon Jim's unique style is from a life time of musical influence's ,Born in Dallas ,TX raised in Arkansas,Growing up with his adopted family after meeting his adopted family he learned that his biological family was into music and this must be why he cant shake the monkey on his back ...MUSIC ...its his blood he claims...spending 16-17 hours a day in the studio for a job thats not even feeding family , Deacon Jim says ,Its either in you or it aint, this is not for everyone, first you gotta get the stars out of you eyes and realize this is a job 7 days a week all year and unless you are well off you will work 16 or 17 hours a day , theirs lil time for thee family or anything the music business must be a part of damn near everything you breath,eat and shit out,and unless you have a very strong ,secure woman by your side like I do a relationship will not survive. its very demanding and competitive fast paced ," Deacon Jim got his first radio at age 7 ,He said he would fall asleep dreaming that was him on the radio . So far that has not come true but still dreams about it.
I don't follow Rules to Good
His adopted family seemed a lot better said Deacon Jim "least we didn't have to eat out the trash can" but he said the abuse was intolerable so he ran away every chance he could and got use to the jail system at a early age, as he would intentionally to get sent away .Deacon Jim said he could fight the kids at diff reformatories ,group homes and jail,but you fight a grown 23 yr vet military Sargent with a quick temper and bad attitude stayed ready to fight he was blunt and very rude,but we made amen after i got married and moved off , the dad I was looking for came around then, he died in my arms ,I still miss him, even though i talk of the pain i endured I am not mad at him i wanna clear that up cause i see where some one might not understand my concept.From that pain came a unusual relationship between him and then hippie Steve Williams . Deacon Jim would run to Steve after being either physically abused by his father or sexually molested by his neighbor, He says Steve would set him on his grandmas porch or on a car and Play his guitar and sing to him. " I would get lost I would lay back and listen to his words and stare at the sky I was lost in time for a moment. He would drink beer and smoke a joint and make me feel comfortable. I'd leave with my confidence and dignity restored. Then i d hit the hood while I was me again,The Hood ,I was on the West Side my whole life and still am till i die thats me Now my kids are following after me. , i did it becuase thats all I had was Davenport Street and The west side ,my home was on St.paul street,the way i was looked at was i as such a Troublemaker, Thief ,Trouble maker and a N....r lover .thief,Brutally Honest ,Thief.problem child ,liar,awe shit you done did it now type dude,but what it was , was that every time someone took a piece of my spirit away I had to have something of theirs so if i did nothing else i waited till night time and sneak out go to my spirit killers house ,Back then everybody kept 32 ounce 6 pack of 32 ounce pop and I d help my self weather they seen me or not.Id pop the first one and try to down it so i would at least get one in before they came chasing,then i stole them 3 cars , then I stopped stealing after reform school ,i was a trouble maker cause i didn't give a shit..I didn't have shit to lose i was getting e few beatings a day and looking at old balls that stank. Any where was better than where I was at . At school i was lower class cause i was trouble making ,low-class thief, so hardly any of the white folks fucked wit cause of my reputation,the black kids never give a shit ....id talk about my troubles they was like JIMI you are ruining our fun time let that stress go and ply we will talk later.." and they was nice and respectful and stood up for me ..so thats was where i was comfortable with the black folks which back then wasn't to kool it just added another label on to me. .never bothered me in fact thats still where i can be me. but i got friends of all types, It's about respect and how you carry yourself..I try to be respectful . hitting the hood i started rapping soon as i heard RUN Dmc . So you got Steve as a influence and Rap .That's my roots. I lean toward Aerosmith cause Micheal Sangster use to jam it in a lil band him and tony or Terry Hoyle had . I have always had a studio video or audio . I had a illegal or a Pirate Radio for a while till it got shut down..I had em jamming there ass off was giving away beer ,had fun with it .but local radio station owner Jimi Sledge went on the man hunt for me I was able to duck for 3 days he finally caught me and gave me a ultimatum Icouldn't refuse. so i went on a rampage against JIMI the next 3 days then shut her down .The drunker i got and talked shit the more my phone would ring .
