Overview

Who Knows God? examines the life of Jason 'Architekk' Jordan, an aspiring rapper and father of three, struggling to make ends meet in the Projects of Harlem. After being fired from his job and separated from his wife and kids, Architekk puts his all into his God given gift of music. During his journey for peace and prosperity Architekk faces hardship before finding happiness in unexpected places. The endeavors of his children; 19 year old Jayson Jordan Jr., 18 year old Hollis Jordan and 13 year old Gwinn Sessoms are also explored.

A new father and husband Jayson Jordan Jr. is at a crossroad in his life. He is forced to make decisions that turn his making music hobby into prosperity. Junior goes on a multi-city tour with his father where he is exposed to a darker side of the rap game. Junior's commercial appeal eventually lands him a record deal, and the fast money and faster women compromise his values. Record sales sore while Junior's marriage and integrity plummet as he struggles to find himself; he wages a lyrical assault on his father that divides the family permanently.

Hollis 'Honey' Jordan is a fiery, competitive, young lady in college on a scholarship for track and field. She suffers a career ending injury, which, along with the guidance of influential professors - is instrumental in changing her perspective on life. Hollis leaves school after only three semesters and starts her own business. She experiences the valleys and peaks of entrepreneurship and adulthood, but she's certain that God is with her until one of friends is murdered. Hollis' faith is shaken. She stops praying and eventually looses the discipline and enthusiasm that she bravely departed her world of normalcy with.

Gwinn, the product of all the above - embodies the good, the bad, and the ugly of her family. A gang-banging, drug spot look-out, and conversely a sweet-heart and exceptional student, Gwinn is a fly girl with a fierce reputation. It rains and eventually pours on Gwinn as she finds herself at odds with those closest to her when her fast life and deceitful ways opens the flood gates of trouble.

See what God has in store for Jason, Junior, Hollis and Gwinn in this edgy, fast paced, page- turner. The book is also packaged with a soundtrack with original music featuring characters and scenes from the novel.
