“ I was floating after my battle, for real. That feeling when the crowd cheered for me is probably what getting high is like, and I'm addicted. ”

[close] Hello! I am hosting this group for the launch of my new Young Adult Urban Fiction Novel Got the Flow: The Hip-Hop Diary of a Young Rapper. Feel free to ask anything about the book or myself. I wrote the book because of my love for hip-hop and the desire to show that it can be smart and positive. It is available for pre-order on Amazon and Smashwords now! Book synopsis/blurb: How far would you go to make your dream come true? Troy Jones is sixteen with the dream of becoming a rapper. He doesn’t want fame; he wants to help his mother who works three jobs after Troy’s father was killed in a drive-by. All Troy wants to do is work on his rap lyrics. His science teacher hates rap & hip-hop music and constantly gives Troy a hard time. However, his English teacher, Mr. Salas, is an inspiration to the young, aspiring rapper. He provides Troy with the tools to improve his craft of writing hip-hop lyrics. When Troy’s best friend Jimmy moves to another school, Troy is introduced to rap battles and gets hooked. His path to rap stardom is paved with battles. Along the way, he meets a love interest, suffers a big loss, meets his idol rapper and an ex-con, gets his music equipment stolen, and has doubts about his rapping ability. Troy doesn’t only want to succeed; he needs to succeed.

[close] A group for those who see that music is a good study and as we all dig deeper into every song, impression, book, blog and whatnot.... true independents stand out more often than not as the great american and global voice of the people. But this group steps out of the subject object marketing dance, and looks deeper into the truth of interdependence, depopularization of the culture but also the pit falls of bad food bar tours, superficial diversity and competition as well as lack of give back to community through investment in teas, juice bars and rain forest event productions dedicated to healing the people and planet.
