Part one of a two part saga. Shahidah's ultra-conservative family despise the idea of her intense love for her drug-dealing boyfriend, Born. She hopes to find an ally in her brother, Muhammad, once he is released from prison. No luck. Her relationship ends, but unfortunately in robbery and murder. Shahidah's sorrow and depression lead her to drug addiction and stripping. Muhammad, on the other hand, skyrockets to the top of the Philadelphia Region's illegal drug game. Albeit, he burns several bridges to earn his spot. Shahida enters a twisted relationship with her brother's most bitter enemy, a dirty cop who will stop at nothing to get Muhammad. Can this family keep the Muslim tradition of maintaing the Family Tiez? Read the book that Federal authorities and the news media have declared to be autobiographical.
