For some, the allure and power of the streets are elusive but yet, a wonder to behold. Some engage in this lifestyle of self-destructive criminal behavior, knowing one day it might cost them their family, freedom, or something even far more valuable . . . their lives.
Four-Times New York Times Besting-Selling Author Wahida Clark is no stranger to the streets. She served nine-and-a-half years in federal prison. The Bronx’s very own Shannon Holmes, author of the National Best-Seller B-More Careful, is no stranger to “Street Lit or the Streets.” He served five years himself.
Together, they handpicked a select group of authors, each with his or her style and unique flavor of urban literature. So, take a walk on the wild side with us through a hood near you, into sticky situations, where everything is not always what it seems. For the characters in this book, the money stakes are high, and lives are up for grabs. Respect is earned—and power is taken.
