Description:

Bestselling Author, Rahsaan Ali, steps into the literary scene with another guaranteed bestseller! When you're in the game, nothing is ever sacred. Ever! "My word is bond" is the phrase most commonly stated amongst the hustlers. The cutthroat styling of the haters is masqueraded by hugs, pounds and love. Loyalty ain't nothing but a word some dick made up to protect his head from the diseased, poverty-filled world of karma. And the only back niggaz got is the line they stand on before being sent back up North.

This is the game where anybody can be a winner and everybody's always a sore loser. The doe is fast and women come in abundance like ripened green bushels of plantains at the West Indian day parade. It can be all good when everybody getting it together. But if you start making even just a dollar more than the next man? Just prepare yourself to spend either time in jail or in the cemetery. Because niggaz is snitching. Keep your friends at a distance because it's not always your enemies you need to be keeping close. The block is a microscope and you're always under it.

About the Author:

Rahsaan Ali began writing poetry when he was twelve years old. After receiving A's in all his classes for poetry assignments that were given for homework he graduated to writing short stories for fun.

At seventeen Rahsaan saw Spike Lee's "Do the Right Thing" and fell in love with the idea of bringing written characters to life. What an influence Spike had on his aspirations! Now, after making the Essence Bestseller List four times consecutively for 2006 with a hip hop romance bestseller called "Nasty" he's since parted ways with his former publisher and is moving on to bigger and better things.
