    Raw Reality

    It's been ten long years since Drako has been in the presence of his Diamond. Tucked behind the wall, he's had to adapt to his current circumstances. It's also where he earned the respect of hardened criminals who helped to educate him on prison survival, while grooming him for a huge takeover. Now with his Diamond nestled by his side, he's on top and destined to stay there.

    Wiz's world is filled with bottle popping, video chicks, bling-bling and he eats up all of the attention. It's been ten years in the making and Red Rum, his music empire, is blowing up all over. He's happy that his best friend Drako and his girl Diamond will finally be able to enjoy the fruits of their labor. With chart-topping hits, the mogul is making magical moves. With him on top, the world is his oyster.

    A LIFE FOR A LIFE by Mike Jefferies is a major hit! The story is chock-full of sex, drugs, envy, money, supremacy, jealousy, greed and love. The core love story between Drako and Diamond is powerful and endearing. It's the backbone of the entire story as you're also wrapped around the glitz and glam of the hip-hop industry. While I am thoroughly sold on Mike's talent, I'm disappointed with having to wait for the follow-up to find out how the treachery hums along.
