Karena I thought that this book was a fantastic read and I would highly recommend it. I have always been a fan of Mobb Deep's music ever since I was fifteen and their first album came out which was a classic. That was in'94 when Nas and Wu was out. P lived the lifestyle of the hood and dangerous. He was always getting arrested because he liked carrying illegal guns and drugs. Reading his book was like going on a journey, because he wrote about rivalry beefs with Keith Murray a talented rapper who I had a major crush on back in the day because he could rhyme and he was cute. But P described him as a wus who had a loud mouth so that was disappointing to read about. He mentions meeting and battling Nas who I'm partial to because he's talented. He talks about beef with Jay-z too at the time. How he came into possession of Tupac's notebook of rhymes, and of being surprised at seeing Nicole Kidman at one of MB's concerts. P comes from an interesting family
lineage nearly every member was a musician. So I see how music ran in his blood.
