In 2002 K'wan hit the scene with his debut novel Gangsta, under Triple Crown Publications. It was the first novel released by the budding house and would eventually become the building block for what is now a multimillion dollar company. What started as a therapeutic release went on to become a part of urban-lit history and an Essence bestseller, as well as drawing rave reviews overseas.
After penning his second novel, Road Dawgz (2003), K'wan drew the attention of St. Martins press. The literary powerhouse quickly signed K'wan to a multi-book deal, the first of which being Street Dreams (2004). In 2008 he received the Black Author of the year award from Black Press Radio for the novella Blow.

K'Wan and 2 other people liked Adrenna Shipman's review of The Diamond Empire:
The Diamond Empire by K'wan
"The brilliant K'wan has done it yet again. The Diamond Empire picks up right where Diamonds and Pearl left off. In my most honest opinion, this book was better than part 1. It was full of action and drama. A true page turner from beginning to end...." Read more of this review »
