Dealers, pimps, police, and politicians--in the blink of an eye the hood is theirs. Now the only thing certain is the cold hard truth of the streets--because with enemies waiting behind every corner, there's only one way to stay on top of the world.

"The voice of the ghetto itself." --The Village Voice
