Wow...first of all the book was amazing. I've read almost all of K'WAN's work and i enjoyed the book. i did have some typos and other errors, but it was worth my time.

Spoiler Alert! First thing first. I already knew St. Louis was going to die. Because the people who already read this book said, he died. I just didn't know how he died. Heck, I was angry as a granny catching her husband f#kin the mail lady. I'm reading this book like I already know he's going to died. Heck, why can't they just let Lou-Loc live I really liked him. And I think Satin actually change him more. Plus I was so freaking happy when Martina got what she deserve lord knows I couldn't stand that grimy heifer. No good stinky thing lmao. And Sisqo got what he deserved to thank the LORD!!!

I absolutely loved this book. K'wan is a brilliant writer and anything with is name on it is definitely worth every dime. I couldn't put the book down!! I just finished reading it and was so disappointed it had to end. Hopefully there is a pert 2 in store!!!

I am a fan of K'Wan but had not read this. It, like all the rest, was a very good book. A little predictable but still a good read.

This was a very quick and interesting read. This is the first book that I've read by K'wan and I must say that I was  truly impressed. I will definitely be reading more by this author. The book was a page turner and was very entertaining; I couldn't put the it down. I was very sad at the ending of the book, but it just goes to show that living that life has a  cost, and although Lou-Loc was trying to get out of the game, it was little too late. This book gave me a glimpse of the hood life and I really enjoyed how the author weaved everyone's story together; I also loved the lead character. I'm definitely now a fan of K'wan and can't wait to read more from him!

It has been a while since I read this book. I decided to review everything that I have ever read. For this novel to be Kwanâ¿¿s baby it was great and his growth is very evident. The grammatical errors and the typos were a bit irritating but it didnâ¿¿t take away from the story. From Cali to NY Lou-Loc and Gutter both have inspirations to be King. One wants to be a King of the ink pen while the other wants to take over the streets and take the throne as Kingpin. The plot is very intriguing and full of suspense. Kwan keeps it gangsta and I canâ¿¿t wait for the return of Gutter.

yall know DARN well that book wasnt good and if you say it was you lying through ya teeth. The intro to the book was decent and so was the ending but thay book was NOT hot. Compared to that boy DUTCH, LOU-LOC aint got NOTHING on him. A good book please, if thats what a good book looks like than TERi WOODS must be a real bad author

This book really got to me. Throughout the story it has you thinking about the world we live in today and how messed up it is. This a good piece of work, i'd recommend this book to any and every person who likes a good urban fiction book.

This book was one of the most touching book i ever read in my life. it proved that the streets are no good,things can happen so fast but it can also go away faster.karma comes back around!

This book kept my attention the whole time. In this K'wan put his heart into each and every character and that is why the book was so GOOD!! It was like the characters came to life.

This book was alright and a nice read. I thought the book reminded me of the movies South Central, Menace To Society, and Colors. This book was predictable and you were able to tell what was going to happen and how it was going to end. It was alright but it could have been better.

OMG this book was off the damn hook. K'wan did it up. I could not put this book down what so ever. Lou-loc was a real nigga with dreams. Its messed up that he never got the chance to live out his dream of becoming a writer. I wish there were more niggas like him because he had a heart of gold under all the dirt he did. basically I'm telling anyone who hasn't read this book yet, go buy it now and read it because you will not be disappointed. To K'wan i tip my hat to him because he has so much talent I want to be like him one day and write books like him.
