About the author
David Rocha was formerly a very well known Chicano Rap (Sir Dyno) artist based out of California. He grew up in the Central Valley town of Tracy. Introduced to being a 'cholo' by his older brothers and cousins, David quickly fell into the lifestyle that many young Chicanos fall prey to. Living a lifestyle of drug dealing and gang banging influenced his lyrics that were listened to by many across the country and other parts of the world. This book was written while serving a year sentence in 1999. Now David Rocha is a born again Christian and pastors a church in Modesto CA named House of Rest Church. He decided to re-release this book as an eBook due to the request of so many of his past followers. He hopes that by releasing this book, it will build a bridge to where he is now in his walk in Christ.
