    The main character gives you a front Row seat into the real world of hoes and pimps. After reading or listening to this book you have an understanding of what it’s like to leave in a world we’re men make their living off women. Although the book was very interesting and entertaining and does not leave much to the imagination it’s hard to put down. I found myself unable to put this book down because of my love hate feelings towards Horeson the main character.

    None of the modern so called urban lit authors touch Goines in terms of realness or vivid story telling. The narrator is on point, brings the book to life with voices and excellent phrasing.
