RAW Rating: 3.5) The Gangster Chronicles, November 12, 2008
By The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers (RAWSISTAZ.com and BlackBookReviews.net)
Have you ever watched American Gangster on BET? Author Seth “Soul Man” Ferranti brings American Gangster from BET to the books in “Street Legends.” He chronicles the six most feared and respected gangsters who live by the creed “death before dishonor.”
STREET LEGENDS profiles Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff, the infamous drug lord of Queens, NY. Wayne “Silk” Perry, most feared because of his murder game, Anthony “AJ” Jones, who prosecutors described as a “killing machine” and Aaron Jones, the founder and leader of the Junior Black Mafia, who ran a multi-million dollar drug organization. Peter “Pistol Pete” Rollack from the “Sex, Money and Murder” gang are also included. Last, but not least is George “Boy George” Rivera, a drug multi-millionaire at the young age of 21.
In reading this novel, I found myself asking if everything these men did was worth the money, cars and material possessions, just to end up a hood legend?
