The early lives of these men were noteworthy particularly the bridges that carried them into legendary status. Some were charismatic rather than ruthless and showed a maneuvering savvy that belied the lives that they led.

Powerful testimonials, particularly from some hip hop heavyweights, and `matter-of-fact’ grit, drive this book. Amid the crime and calculated misdeeds, these were tales of integrity: there is honor amid the bloodshed, drugs, and money…….even among thieves.
