Biography

Tha Chill (born Vernon Johnson in Compton, California 1970) is a co-founder of the Compton based hip hop group, Compton's Most Wanted, along with the frontman MC Eiht. During his childhood, Chill dropped out of highschool and hooked up with the neighbourhood MC Eiht forming the group. Tha Chill has also produced several albums, including The Hard Way released in 2004 by the Long Beach based supergroup, 213.
