Mississippi Artist/Producer James "J Skillz" Ricks Murdered
January 22, 2014

Canton police found victim James "J Skillz" Ricks lying face down on the floor of a bedroom with a single gunshot wound to his torso at a home on North Canal Street after 8:45 p.m., Assistant Police Chief Juan Coy told the station.

Frederick Smith was arrested later Tuesday night on Frost Street.

Smith is being held on $1 million bond in the shooting death of Ricks.

Police said they believe the two men got into an argument when Smith shot Ricks in the stomach. Neighbors reported a lot of foot traffic into the residence at all hours of the day. Cloy said the house was used as a rap studio.
