Who is Jerome Enders: Born in Yonkers, New York, a product of Mulford Gardens, Jerome Enders was bred to survive, harness emotion, and endure his share of ups and downs. No American Dream, childhood was plagued with drug addiction, loyalty is a must and dreams are to be robbed if focus goes astray. Jerome Enders is a visionary, a motivator; someone who has the ability to touch people with words and leave impressions on not only their minds, but also their hearts. A combination of various abilities that link up to reach the same goal, he is a friend to a friend, a brother to a brother, and a father to two daughters. And in between writings and other tasks, he makes time to teach them about everything from business to changing a flat tire and even Mitochondrial DNA, the science of genetics that are only passed from woman to woman.

Jerome comes from a melting pot of cultures, experiences and where dreams get you as far as you create them. That`s right home to the Yonkers: The Lost City of Hip Hop Pt. 1, Yonkers has played out and surely authenticated 30 years of what was known as hip hop. Mr. Enders has already succeeded in setting himself apart easily being able to describe his writing style as, I developed a writing style that is going to take a life of its own. I have so much to draw from. I am going to write books from so many angles and still be solid. From my project up bring, I can give you a good street novel. "

See, growing up in New York hip hop was both routine through life, but today it has reached the masses of the earth. Looking at hip hop and how it has spread around the world and the love it has, it brings a joy to his heart.

Nowadays he attest there`s a lot of fake music out there " real instruments being replaced by auto tune and younger lyricists still sulking in the shadows of the veterans. The days of rapping about selling drugs, coppin` whips, and selections of women is fading, old and no longer authentic. For 15 years we have seen the emergence of commercial hip hop, endorsing a large feat and short lived display of success. Numb to the usual video vixens and creative concepts, music is the true addiction. Jerome recalls Pt. 2 of Yonkers: The Lost City of Hip Hop They say Music Calms the Savage Beast, but in many cases music activated the savage beast. "
