about

I originally wrote this book as a movie script back in 1992 while awaiting trial. It was a add-on to a movie that I had started filming before being locked up. It was my answer to the movie Rocky. But if you knew anything about the publishing business, you would know that at the time, it was virtually impossible to get published as a black author. So this book went in my bag. Once convicted and sent off to the plantation, this book was passed around amongst the convicts alongside the likes of Goines and Ice Berg. Til’ finally my homie shipped with it. I tried unsuccessfully to contact “Apple” for about two years with no luck. By this time, 2002, I had written four more books, and with the emergence of independent black publishers, I realized that my own try at independent publishing in 1998 wasn’t a pipe dream but rather the lack of vision from un-named people. So once again I tried to go thru the established. Finally I concluded that a nigga that has never had nothing don’t know how to be ‘true to the game.’ So back to square one with the idea of dropping two books at the same time. I rewrote the book and merged it with the book that all my readers liked the most. But since my luck is as good as a rabbit losing his foot. You know I lost the book again. Finally, January 2006, I re-wrote this book. Only this time I set out to put it in book form as I wrote it. And here it is, all hand written; cover and all. 14 years in the making. Damn, why so long?
