Straight From the Hood: Amazing but True Gangster Tales

Many   books   have   written   about   the   black   gangster.   They   have   been,   for   the   most   part,   lengthy   tomes   focusing   on   the   kingpins   of the   gangland   scene,   gangsters   with   names   like   Nicky   Barnes,   Frank   Lucas,   Lorenzo   Fat   Cat   Nichols   and   Kenneth   Supreme   McGiff. Yet   there   are   many   stories   about   the   black   gangsta   that   have   not   received   much   press   coverage   or   have   simply   been   ignored   or missed   by   the   media.   They   indeed   reveal   a   lot   about   the   history   of   the   hood.   Straight   from   Hood   is   a   compilation   of   some   of   those fascinating stories. In   Straight   from   the   Hood,   you   will   find   tales   feature   drug   kingpins,   entertainers,   hit   men,   street   gangs,   con   men,   corrupt   cops   and reformed   gang   bangers.   Read   about   the   most   feared   man   in   the   entertainment   industry;   the   love   story   between   Fran,   a   former heroin   addict,   and   David,   a   reformed   gangsta,   both   of   whom   have   become   celebrities;   the   unlikely   alliance   between   an   ambitious Black   gangsta   and   a   violent—indeed   crazy—   white   Italian-American   mobster;   the   terrorist   plot   involving   a   Chicago   street   gang,   and more. Did   you   know   old   “Scarface”   Capone   had   an   impact   on   the   Chicago’s African American   community?   What   does Alcatraz   have   to   do with   Harlem’s   most   famous   godfather?   Why   is   Denzel   Washington   in   this   book?   Who   is   a   modern   day   desperado   who   died   by   the gun   but   managed   to   live   on   through   rap   music?   How   did   a   stick-up   artist   from   Brooklyn   become   Hip-Hop’s   Answer   to   Lee   Harvey Oswald?Each   of   the   stories   may   be   amazing,   but   all   of   them   are   true.   Straight   from   the   hood.   They   have   been   gathered   for   your reading pleasure to inform, educate and enlighten you.
