In 2015, he told The Detroit News that he started selling drugs and drinking as a young child. Boldy said he ran away from home at age 11 and spent years sleeping in cars and abandoned houses.
Recently, James told The News he had six children, four boys and two girls, and that he was enjoying life.
“This is a dream come true, I’m not filthy rich, but just to be removed from the ghetto and be able to travel and see other cities, other states and how they rock, how they get down, I get to appreciate the simple things in life. I have these freedoms: being able to open up the refrigerator, jumping in my car whenever I like. I’ve been through some humbling situations, so I’m just chillin’, I don’t get full of myself or too big for my britches. I just take everything as is, and I accept it for what it is.”
Get well soonest, rapper Boldy James.
