About the Author
Edward Gamm'ge was born in 1971, the heyday of disco. That same year, two men started the foundation for the biggest street phenomenon known to America today. Raised between his mother's strict Jehovah's Witness faith that conflicted with his grandparents' Baptist religion, the author somehow found his belief in L.A.'s gang realm during its bloodiest existence. Affiliated as a Crip survivor since age 14, it's been "Dodger" blues to prison blues. Through the influential redemption of Crip cofounder Stanley "Tookie" Williams and the hard experience of a 15-year retribution, the author was enlightened and challenged to be a solution for the trend of destruction in today's urban societies.
