The score from his job landed him at the top of City Line Avenue, or so he thought. His homey, Fatboy, was his sidekick. Blue was his come up, until death played a part.
Bashi, GQ, and Cap took Teco into the Strictly Business (SB) crew, which was in partnership with Young Black Mafia (YBM). Gail Indigo Que (a.k.a. GQ), the only female member of the SB Crew, was the enforcer before Teco took her spot. This was a big move for Teco, who was nicknamed Homicide by Bashi, the SB Crew boss. Living a lavish life with money, drugs, and gorgeous women seemed promising until a major take down.
After getting out of jail, Homicide's mission was to find out where Bashi disappeared. Back on the streets of Philly, he heard lots of talk about Bashi's whereabouts and the names of those who were involved. Will the power struggle between Homicide and GQ get in the way of discovering the truth? Now Homicide is on a binge to find who snatched up his boss and to pay them back in a way that no one would ever think. Homicide owed that to Bashi for keeping him off of the streets.
Homicide decided to relocate to Washington, D.C. not realizing that things in the Chocolate City aren't very different from the City of Brotherly Love and that there is always money to be made. Headed to Washington, D.C. on an Amtrak train, will Teco ever answer the question: "The Street Life, is it suicide or murder?"

Teco Jackson aka Homicide loves the life as a petty thief and stealing Johnnies. Sleeping at the houses of different women and having just enough to get by has been a way of life for as long as he can remember. With a chance encounter with Bashi, the leader of the infamous SB crew, Teco must step up his thuggle in order to survive the life that is currently not his own anymore. Gail Indigo Que aka GQ is the right hand woman to Bashi. She will break a sucka down like lightening and enjoys being the go to person whenever Bashi is not around. As Homicide joins the crew, GQ is not impressed or enthused about the pretty boy thief. GQ also cannot stand by while the position that should be rightfully hers is weaseled right from under her. Bashi knew the moment that he laid eyes on Homicide that he was meant for his crew. With only a few members, Bashi could easily mold Homicide into the ranking of second in command. Bashi also knew that Homicide and GQ would eventually go toe to toe and only the one left standing would prevail. The first installment of Street Life is a good beginning to what seems to be an entertaining series. At times, I felt like putting my hands around Homicide to let him in on what was really going on. I figured nobody in their right mind could be that stupid, but maybe that was the author's way to making you get into the book and characters. In any event, I look forward to the second part.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
