Summary
A violent and introspective memoir that reveals not only 50's story but the story of a generation of youth faced with hard choices and very little options. A tale of sacrifice, transformation and redemption, but it is also one of hope, determination and the power of self. Told in 50's own unique voice, the narrative drips with raw insight, street wisdom, and his struggle to survive at all costs ... and behold the riches of the American Dream.--From publisher description
Summary
The rap artist recounts the story of how he abandoned his dangerous life of crime to pursue a hip-hop career, the confontation with a rival drug lord that nearly ended his life, and his rise to success in the music business
