More About T.H.U.G. L.I.F.E. by Sanyika Shakur
 
 
 
Overview
The follow up to his best-selling memoir "Monster," Sanyika Shakur s "T.H.U.G. L.I.F.E." is a vicious, heart-wrenching and true-to-life novel about an LA gang member that masterfully captures the violence and depravity of gang life. Shakur s protagonist is Lapeace, the leader of the Eight Tray Crips gang in South Central Los Angeles. In a deadly gunfight with Anyhow, a Blood and Lapeace s rival since childhood, eight innocent civilians are killed. Anyhow is captured. Lapeace becomes a fugitive and he must hide out in the home of his girlfriend, Tashima, a hip-hop mogul as a pair of crooked LA detectives, John Sweeney and Jesse Mendoza, attempt to track him down.
This novel was written from the confines of Shakur s jail cell, and the authenticity of its street scenes—the relentlessness of violence, the do-or-die attitude of each side of the gang war, the sheer joy in the killing—is a testament to the hell that has been a majority of Shakur s life. With "T.H.U.G. L.I.F.E.," Shakur delivers a powerful and gripping story about the terror of gang life and one man s attempt to free himself."
