Biography

DONNELL PRICE WAS BORN OCTOBER 17TH 1987 TO NICOLE PRICE AND DONNELL HILL ON THE WEST SIDE OF CHICAGO. BOTH HIS PARENTS WERE ONLY 15YRS OF AGE WHEN HE WAS BORN. FROM THE BEGINNING DONNELL HAD THE ODDS AGAINST HIM, WITH THE GENERATIONS OF FAMILY BEFORE HIM ALL SUBJECT TO DRUGS, GUN VIOLENCE, AND PROSTITUTION. DONNELL LATER ACQUIRED THE NICK-NAME “YOUNG THUNDA” OR “Y.T” FOR SHORT. HE GOT THE NAME IN THE STREETS FOR BEING ONE WHO DIDN’T ACCEPT ANYTHING FROM ANYBODY, DESPITE HIS CIRCUMSTANCES AND THE ENVIRONMENT THAT HE WAS GROWING UP IN, BEING RAISED IN “THE VILLAGE” WHICH WAS AN AREA KNOWN FOR BEING THE HOME OF THE NOTORIOUS “BLACK GANGSTERS ALSO KNOWN AS THE “NEW BREED’S”. “Y.T” WAS THE 3RD GENERATION THUNDA FROM THE VILLAGE. HIS UNCLE WAS GIVEN THE NAME FOR HIS ABILITY TO KEEP RESPECT IN THE STREETS, AND HE IN TURN PASSED IT DOWN TO HIM BECAUSE OF HIS ABILITY TO DO THE SAME. NOW YOUNG THUNDA’S NAME STARTED TO BE SPREAD AROUND THE VILLAGE BECAUSE OF HIS LOVE AND ABILITY TO PERFORM GOOD MUSIC. HE STARTED BATTLE RAPPING IN THE STREETS AND HIS RHYMES WERE OFTEN COMPARED TO THE ROAR OF THUNDER IN A LIGHTNING STORM. AS LIFE IN THE VILLAGE BECAME HARDER THUNDA REALIZED THAT EITHER HE LEFT, OR HE WOULD FALL INTO THE CURSE THAT THE GENERATIONS BEFORE HIM DID, SO HE DECIDED TO MOVE TO COUNTY CLUB HILLS, IL WHERE HE STARTED A RAP GROUP CALLED SHORTIES ON THE LOOSE (S.O.T.L). AS POPULARITY GREW FOR THE GROUP THEY BECAME, WHAT IS NOW KNOWN IN THE AREA AS “THE RENEGADES.” DUE TO SOME MISTAKES THAT “Y.T” MADE IN HIS LIFE HE WAS ON HIS OWN AT THE AGE OF 17 AND HAS LIVED MOST OF HIS LIFE TILL NOW HOMELESS AND MOVING FROM PLACE TO PLACE. IN 2007 HE CROSSED PATHS WITH HUSTLE CLUB CREATIONS, AN ORGANIZATION WHO WERE DEVELOPING AND PROMOTING ARTISTS IN THE CHICAGO AREA. HUSTLE CLUB CREATIONS LATER FORMED THEIR OWN INDIE RECORD LABEL CALLED HC2 MUSIC GROUP, WHICH “THUNDA” WAS ONE OF THE FIRST ARTISTS. HC2 MUSIC GROUP WILL BE RELEASING THEIR DEBUT MIX TAPE TITLED “BETTER THAN THE REST” VOL.1 IN MAY AND Y.T’S INDIVIDUAL MIX TAPE TITLED “SECTION 8” WILL FOLLOW MID SUMMER
