G PRECIOUS BIOGRAPHY
G Precious born Brenda M. Atencio was raised on the Indian Reservation of Ohkay Owingeh – Village of the Strong (formerly San Juan Pueblo) by her grandmother Gregorita T. Atencio. The 2nd of 8 children, she began creative writing at the young age of 6, identifying herself as BMA Chill – part of a group known as Chill, Funky, Ice which included her cousin Jay Funky and her little brother GMT Ice. BMA Chill continued writing as a means to deal with the dynamics of life – alcoholism, drugs, depression, suicide, and abuse.
At the age of 12, BMA Chill became G Precious. With the deaths of her aunts Sandy and Rose, her older brother Ivan, and her grandmother, it proved difficult for G Precious to deal with their deaths as these were people who all had an influence on her life and were a part of her main support system growing up. Their deaths sparked a new flame pushing G Precious to return to the recording studio, complete and release her first album titled, “On My Shoulders.” This was the heartbreaking, long awaited debut album from G Precious, a Native American woman and upcoming Hip Hop, Pop, R&B Artist; she put her life, her heart, her family, her struggles, the courageous hope and healing process into this album.
Since the release of “On My Shoulders” G Precious has released several additional albums titled:
- Hip Hop & Hotdogs Vol. 1
- Walk On Water – Evolution
- Bow & Arrow Songs of Ohkay Owingeh (Traditional Album)
- The Forgotten (featuring Grammy Award Winner Macy Gray)
