Synopses & Reviews
Daquan Watson grows up in the most notorious, drug-infested housing projects in New Orleans, but when he hears hip hop music, it speaks to him in a new way, and he learns responsibilities as he tries to build a future with a rap company.
C-Murder--rap star, media mogul and until recently, an incarcerated convicted murderer--is actually Corey Miller, the younger brother of Master P, founder and president of New Orleans-based No Limit Records. No Limit Records, Master P and C-Murder have all been influential in the powerful rise of Southern hip hop in mainstream music. Success can make you an easy target though; and C-Murder has always denied that he was involved in the murder, insisting his fame was behind the charges. But even before all the success, C-Murder's life was tough, from a troubled youth growing up in a ruthless New Orleans housing project to his struggle for personal and professional success. Now, drawing on that experience to write Death Around the Corner, C-Murder delivers a powerful novel sure to please both fans of his music and all fans of urban fiction.
