Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Grammy Award-winning rapper and star of "Law & Order: SVU" offers his hip-hop generation's Horatio Alger story: the narrative of an orphaned child drawn inexorably into a harrowing life of crime, who through self-discipline, forges a path to international fame.

About the Author
