Mr. Darrell King, Sr. has been writing ever since the age of eight. His first published work of fiction was penned during the fall of 1976 as a student of Mary Field's Elementary School on South Carolina's Daufuskie Island. This effort, an adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's ''The Hobbit,'' was both written and illustrated by Mr. King and was published in the school's quarterly periodical, ''The Daufuskie Kid's Magazine.'' Mr. King went on to write several unpublished stories and numerous poems, several of which were published in the 1995-1996 ''Poetry Anthology'' by the National Library of Poetry in Owings Mills, Maryland. During the 90s, Mr. King was attracted to and inspired by the lurid tales of inner city crime and drama that he read on the pages of novels by great writers such as Donald Goines and Iceberg Slim. This, coupled with an enduring appreciation for the hard-edged, yet enlightened lyric of the era's gangsta rap icons like Tupac Shakur, The Notorious B.I.G., Easy E and others prompted Mr. King to begin writing his very own stories of urban crime and inner city drama. Mr. King resides in Prince George's County, Maryland with his wife Sonya and their five children.
Dirty Southby Darrell King
Behind the moss-draped trees, Mint Juleps and stately mansions of the American Deep South lies a foreboding and deadly dark side. Multimillionaire drug lords do power lunches with Southern aristocrats by day and lay waste to their rivals by night in a bloodbath not seen since the Civil War. At the helm of the million-dollar drug deals, bling-bling lifestyle and widespread murder hails the power Lake Clan, led by ruthless New Orleans kingpins Marion ''Snookey'' Lake and his ambitious nephew, Rae-Kwon. The Lakes relocate to Georgia in an effort to both escape the Feds and spread their ever-growing dominance within the Southern crime infrastructure. However, they are met with immediate and violent resistance from the South Carolina's feared Sea Island thugs who jealously guard their fertile drug turf. Travel down I-95 South into a ruthless environment, which, until recently, lay hidden beneath the long-held faÃ§ade of Southern comfort. Experience the real Dirty South.

Read a while ago and enjoyed it
at 1st i thought this book was boring.. until i really got into it. all the events that take place in this book will make you never want to put it down. it was sad how rae rae's family was torn apart. but at the end everything was alright
I was expecting so much more from this book. It just glamorized the Drug World and Unlce Snooky was just too much. If there was more drama that involved the storyteller, it would have been a little better. I also was lost on how old Rae-Rae was in the story after so many events. It ended nicely.
