Growing up in Grand Rapids, Michigan Boonce was surrounded by The Game. A kid who came of age on the Southeast side of Grand Rapids, MI during its darkest years of drugs, violence, and abandonment, and how he navigated that traumatizing landscape to a different life. Boonce was born into a family with a notorious reputation in Grand Rapids, MI from the west end of Oakdale St. His father and uncles were well-known figures in the city and was later sentenced to lengthy prison terms. From infancy his life is influenced by the game, and by the time he starts high school, he makes a life-shaping choice. Soon, Boonce and the second generation of the family rise up to dominate the streets. As his day-to-day life becomes more and more anxious-he is shot and watches as family fall to prison, addiction and even death. His identity splits in two: a hustler roaming through books, whose rep of earning money rings in the streets. He gravitates toward earlier teachings that gives him both a voice to tell the story of his young life and the knowledge he needed to create a new one. Despite the challenges he has faced, he used his OGs tutelage and his personal experience as tools to carve out his own path while reviving the legacy of his family. The challenges never stopped-but neither did Boonce. His life is a testimony to the fact that God can take what's shattered and put it back together again.
