The Forthcoming: Kwai D - Crumbs To Bricks: Competition's None
Crumbs To Bricks: Competition's None
You might think you know the inner-city world of drugs and crime. But you don't. You might think you've gotten to know it on the news, or in a movie, or after making a wrong turn late one night. But you haven't. "Crumbs to Bricks: Competition's None" will show you around Cincinnati's drug and crime world - a world with its own laws and norms, and its own hopes and expectations, none of which involve happy endings. There are MJ and Lil One, fresh from prison and looking to make some money in retail pharmaceuticals; Lil Craze and Toke, one from the inner city but the other from a surprisingly middle-class upbringing, who dabble in the same business; the various women, mothers and hoes, who lie on the periphery of their lives; and the police and narcs who try to impose the laws as they see fit. All of them come into inevitable and violent collision in the pages of this book. "Crumbs to Bricks: Competition's None" is a tough and brutally frank look at inner-city life, one that will not sit well with most preconceptions and social beliefs. Yet it might well provide more insight than have all the speeches and studies on the subject combined.
