Lamont be my government, but Hood be my name. I earned my stripes chilling up in Fat Daddy's joint, a Brownsville barbershop in the belly of Brooklyn. Some called me a street savior...others said I was just another Brownsville boy gone bad. Whatever. I brung it and I took it too. But when it was all said and done, I walked away with a lesson learned in street loyalty: ain't no need in looking over your shoulder in this game. Because your real enemies ain't aiming at your back. They lunging straight for your heart. Ya dig?

Lamont "Hood" Mason is a fearless nineteen-year-old gangsta who was born and raised in the projects of Brooklyn, New York. He was an abandoned child who roamed the cold city streets and fought hard for survival. The only thing constant in his young life was the safety of a Brownsville barbershop owned by a father figure called Fat Daddy.

The barbershop is where Hood comes of age, but cutting hair isn't the only thing Fat Daddy has going on. His daughter, Egypt, is the love of Hood's young life, and the one person whose dreams of a stable future can lead him off the grimy urban corners and out of the hustling life.

But when Fat Daddy gets caught slippin and crosses paths with Xanbar, a notoriously brutal drug kingpin, his vices threaten to bring death down on the family Hood loves. In an effort to protect his own, Hood and his best friend and hustling partner, Dreko, take to the streets on a bloody mission that doesn't go exactly as planned. Hood returns to find his world turned upside down by a wave of sex, violence, and betrayal. No longer the starving kid on the street, he's now a man seeking vengeance and retribution, and he might be forced to choose between bending or breaking as he picks up the shattered pieces of his life, one by one.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Behind Noire's hyperrealistic graphic violence and raunchy sex are interwoven stories, a strong plot and carefully drawn characters with classic motivations. Noire is Dickens for the age of dojah, donuts and dawgs."
- Publishers Weekly

"This effort will please public library patrons who like their street lit out on the very roughest edge."
- Library Journal

Publishers Weekly

Blood, lust and loyalty are at the heart of this latest pulp offering from Noire. At 18, Lamont Mason, aka "Hood," rises up in the hierarchy of the Brownsville, Brooklyn, drug trade, despite a tough childhood where he and his younger brother, Moo, are cast off (at 11 and four, respectively) by their crack-addicted mother. Hood forges a new "family" with the corrupt barber Fat Daddy and his gorgeous, full-of-future-plans daughter, Egypt, as well as with a fellow dealer, Dreko, whom Hood sees as a brother, despite Dreko's own mother thinking he's a "twisted demon." When allegiances start to falter, big deals go down and the lure of the drugs he sells begin taking over the lives of those close to him, Hood, while constantly inventing rhymes that keep him sane, has to decide who he can afford to love if he wants to survive. Behind Noire's hyperrealistic graphic violence and raunchy sex are interwoven stories, a strong plot and carefully drawn characters with classic motivations. Noire is Dickens for the age of dojah, donuts and dawgs. (Aug.)

Read an Excerpt

Chapter 1

I'm a G-E-N-E-R-A-L!

Get it right, I'm the type that'll always prevail!

I'm a G-E-N-E-R-A-L!

The club was packed out and niggas was wildin. In a back room the bass thumped hard, booming through the walls and sending vibrations up through the cold cement floor. Dreko opened his legs wider and watched the white girl as she bobbed her head up and down between his thighs. Her pink lips nibbled along the shaft of his dick as he wound his fingers through her hair, then slid them down to grip her slim neck.

"Stop playin," he growled from deep in his throat. "Suck this shit right and don't be fuckin playin."

The girl giggled and puckered up, pecking his wood with tiny kisses. She took a deep breath and blew on his dick, amazed at the thick black snake she held in her hands.

"Man — " Dreko squeezed her neck painfully then slammed her face down into his groin. "Suck my fuckin dick! Fuck all them little kisses. Gimme some of that throat."

"Sorry," the white girl whispered. She'd spotted Dreko when he stepped in from the bitter cold with three other guys, and right away her pussy had started throbbing. She had a thing for muscled up, dark chocolate guys with danger in their eyes and this cat had walked up in the joint like he paid the bills.

She took his pretty dick in both hands and stuffed it in her mouth. A lot of cats liked it when she spread her long blond hair over their thighs and teased them with her lips while they watched. She always made sure they got a good look at her smooth, white skin pressed up on their black dicks. It turned them on to see that contrast, feeding those secret fantasies of dominating and fucking the shit out of a white girl.

But this dude seemed cranky and impatient. The way he held her neck in a death grip told her he wanted his head straight up. No frills and no fancy foreplay. Just suck the dick and get the damn nut. She went to work on that shit like it was her day job.

"Yeah," he moaned as she slurped away, taking hi whole dick in her mouth, then spitting it out halfway, before sucking it in again. The white girl worked him over. Her best friend Lauren had been fuckin with club ballers like him for months now, but she was still pretty new to this scene and was looking for a real playa who could offer her some status.

Her family was Italian and they lived over in Canarsie. They hated black people and if her father and brothers knew she was in a club naked on her fifteen-year-old knees with a black man's dick rammed down her throat, they'd kill her ass. They'd have to catch her first, though. She'd run away from home seven times in the last few months and the pull of the streets was enough to make her stay gone forever.

She glanced up as Dreko pounded up into her mouth. His eyes were closed and there was rage mixed in with the hot pleasure on his face. He was a real youngster too. He looked a whole lot younger now than he did when he had stepped through the door looking all good under them club lights. He licked his pretty brown lips as he groaned again and she damn near lost her neck rhythm staring at his fine ass. Young wasn't the fuckin word. He was even younger than her. His goatee was barely more than peach fuzz. He was heavy in the dick though, and his tall, strapping body was all man. He opened his eyes and busted her staring. She picked up her pace and slurped his dick harder, then hummed in the back of her throat, vibrating her tonsils against his sweet, swollen head.

"Faster," he demanded. His hand still gripped her neck, tighter now as he worked anxiously for his nut. She felt his dick straining as he arched his back and pumped into her mouth. She worked double-time. Sucked his muscle deeper. Put every trick she knew into pleasing him as she anticipated how good his big black dick was going to feel pounding inside of her.

She smiled to herself as she felt his body stiffen, then shudder. He was young, she realized. He'd lost his head in less than three minutes and she silently congratulated herself as she felt his warm semen fill her mouth. Holding it on her tongue, she savored his salty flavor.

Above her, he pushed her away then leaned back in the chair. He laid his head back against the wall. "Damn. That muhfuckin shit felt good."

Still smiling inside, she rose and climbed into his lap, straddling his strong legs and rubbing her damp pussy on his still-hard dick. She pressed her lips against his throat then pulled his head forward, covering his mouth with hers. She parted her lips and tongued him down real deep, letting his bitter spurt flow out of her mouth and into his.

"Wha — " he snatched away, spitting out slime. He wiped his tongue on his sleeve and cursed.

She laughed. "It's a snowball," she explained. "I just gave you a little snowball."

He swung so fast she never saw it coming. Broke her nose with just one punch. The blow sent her flying backward from his lap. Her head cracked on the edge of a metal table and she thudded to the floor. Pain exploded between her eyes and every bone in her body hurt. Blood trickled from her nose and filled her mouth. A wet scream burst from her throat.

"Nasty bitch!" His scream was even louder than hers as he yanked up his pants and raised his foot and kicked in her face.

Her nose throbbed in agony. She tried to turn and avoid his blow and a bomb went off in the back of her head. His boot cracked her skull and the horrible sound that split the room came from her own lips. Not even the club music could cover it, and it just got louder and louder as she rolled over on her back and his boot came down again. Hard. Bashing into her broken nose and busting both her lips.

"Please..." she begged, flat on her back gurgling blood with her arms stretched toward him. He raged like a fuckin maniac above her. Sweat was dripping off his face and his eyes looked devil red. Cursing, he buried his boot in her stomach. She rolled over again and threw up.

"Nasty fuckin bitch," he panted as he stomped her face into the cold cement. Sobbing, she curled herself inward like a baby, her hands slippery with blood as she tried in vain to spread her fingers over her busted head. Her blond hair was sticky in her eyes and she screamed louder when her fingers pressed against a soft, dented part of her skull. The pain was so intense she gasped, nearly blacking out, cowering under the flurry of his blows, unable to escape.

He was gonna kill her and she knew it. All she could do was lay there and pray. A minute later there was a commotion and the door was flung open as a bunch of dudes busted up into the small room. Thank you, God, the girl thought as she lay weak and disoriented. Dreko was swarmed by five big cats who pulled him off her and tackled him to the ground.

"I will kill that dirty bitch!" he was screaming and spitting as they took him down to the ground. "Word my niggas, I'ma kill her nasty ass!"

As she lay naked and moaning on the cold, dirty floor, the young white girl silently thanked God again. She'd been fucking with fire on these mean streets of Brownsville and this time she had come real close to getting burnt. They dragged Dreko out of the room and he was still screaming like an animal.

Somebody threw a sweater over her tiny titties. She fought against the black pain and willed her fingers to move as she struggled to pull the sweater over her bloody head. She was up on her hands and knees, and Dreko's threats were still ringing in her ears and sending cold terror rushing through her blood.

Right then and there she made the wisest decision of her young life. These streets were hungry as hell for a girl like her. They'd eat her little ass up and shit her right out. Fuck all this. Her girl Lauren could stay in Brownsville wildin with these crazy niggers for the rest of her life if she wanted to, but if she could just find enough strength to make it outta this club alive she was crawling her white ass back home to Canarsie.

    Realism

    This book is an account of what really happens in the ghetto. There are no free trips, lottery escapades, or storybook affairs. It is as if someone was dicatating their life story on paper. I am from the city of Baltimore and I have witnessed almost every aspect of the incidents that were decribed in this book. When I started reading this book I was on the edge of my seat and I reamined there until I finished the book. I was actually angry when I became sleepy and had to put the book down. The book was so real until I had dreams of what Hood was going to do next. If there is a way to vote for this book to be made into a movie so that more people can also experienc the realism, you have my vote.

    A classic in my book!!!!

    Great book. Had me hooked from the first page. It's filled with drama and interesting characters. Noire did an outstanding job of bringing these characters to 'life.' The book's ending was perfect. I was satisfied completely!!! I loved G-Spot, but loved this even more!!!!

    BEST BOOK EVER NEXT TO THONG ON FIRE!

    Things that happened in this book was the saddest ever. Hood met Egypt and fell in love, had made love constantly until his friend turned her and his baby mama out. Sad story but trust me, it is worth the price!!

    The most entertaining book yet

    from begining to end this book leaves you on edge wanting more. It makes you anticipate on what will happen next and makes you want to read it over and over again. Hood, Egypt, Fat Daddy, Dreko, ect. they all had they're own little scenes and it should really be a moive it is the best book yet
