Gun violence is an epidemic in Dayton, Ohio. Just last week, a woman who was 9 months pregnant was fatally shot in the DeSota Bass housing complex. She was an innocent bystander and was scheduled to deliver her baby the next day. Da’Lyne Foster, 27 years old, was hit in the midsection by a stray bullet. Her full term baby boy was delivered by C-section and remains in the neonatal intensive care unit. It is unknown at this time if he has sustained any brain damage.

Dayton’s murder rate is on par with Columbus, Cincinnati and Cleveland, all of which have a significantly larger population. This past February was one of the most deadly months in Dayton’s history. A string of unrelated murders left 6 people dead in 6 days. One of these incidents involved the shooting of two 13 year old girls, one of which died at the scene. The shooter had only been released from prison months earlier, after serving 18 years for murder.

Dayton hip hop artist Coach Chronic is no stranger to the volatility of the Dayton streets. Born to a single mother and a heroin-addicted father, his early years were spent between 3 of Dayton’s most violent neighborhoods. He began writing rhymes at the age of 9, and hustling at the age of 11. At the age of 16, he released his first album as one third of the group ODC. The project was entitled “G Til They Kill Me” and sold over 5,000 units. Three years later Coach Chronic released his solo album called “Da Certified Hustla” which sold over 10,000 units solely by self distribution. Unfortunately, this title became self fulfilling when Coach Chronic was sentenced to 4 years in federal prison on drug charges. Coach chose to put his time incarcerated to good use, completing his high school education and obtaining other certifications, truly making him “Da Certified Hustla.”

Upon release from prison, Coach Chronic decided to take his life in a different direction. He decided that he would no longer be a part of the game…but would instead coach the players. In 2009 he released “Str8 Out Da Trunk Vol. 1” with DJ Ron Hunter. In 2010 he released the strong 2-disc follow-up with both DJ SKNO and DJ Chaos hosting. His most recent project, Full Court Press, showcases his rugged realism and lyrical ease. Taking his coaching role seriously, the single and video for “Ghost of A Gangsta” moved the city and earned him a nomination from The Ohio Hip Hop Awards for video of the year. As an OG and leader in the city, Coach Chronic continues to share his wisdom and coach the players of the city with his latest single “Knuckle Up.”

“My city is dying because we choose to shoot and kill versus using our knuckles… Put the guns down… And knuckle up!”
