After spending nearly a decade behind bars, Drako finally had something to smile about. His mentor, Toney Domacio, had taught him the workings of the underworld, and Drako was primed to take advantage. Along with his girlfriend Diamond, a new home, flashy cars and millions being thrown his way from his longtime friend and Red Rum Records CEO, Wiz, most would be content. But Drako still wasn't satisfied. In his mind, he deserved everything that Wiz had, and more. He was determined to play da game raw and make his millions, by any means necessary. This obsession with wealth culminated into a lucrative white collar scheme. Suddenly, things began to unravel. Wiz, who had employed Drako as his chief of security, endures media and federal scrutiny in the aftermath of death of a rival rapper. Diamond is becoming more and more nervous about the Feds catching on to Drako's schemes. But all the while Drako still has plans that must be carried out- plans that won't allow anyone to stand in their way- No Exceptions! This is a story of love and hate, trust and betrayal, life and death, all revolving around hip-hop, business, federal agents, gangstas, and inmates to bring about a shocking, dramatic conclusion. It is a tribute to those who understand that sometimes, in order for one to survive, another must be buried. It is, for all intents and purpose, A Life For A Life.

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. Reviewed by: Crystal 3.5
