Not On My Block

by Gregory Garrett

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
What goes on in the mind of a gangster? In the streets or hood, it’s “Get it how you live or else become a victim of circumstance.” Born and raised in the gutter of Liberty Arms Projects, EP, Hops, Freaky Rel, and Big Gee, aka "The Bottom Boyz" were products of their environment. Faithfully, they lived the street life each day; grinding, putting in work, or whatever deemed profitable at any expense. Though known as mere hustlers to the projects, their gangster recognition stood out at an alarming capacity. But behind all the constant drama and complicity, The Bottom Boyz lacked the mental ingredients that it took to elevate their game to its fullest potential. On the other hand, despite their reckless and senseless behavior or the scale of the profit, they were constantly searching and plotting to rise above their current situation. They cared less of whom and what got in their way or whose life was threatened; ultimately, greed overcomes them. Personal lives begin to unravel and in their quest to overcome the realms of the streets, their gangster life, loyalty, the block, and even friendship will be tested in a major way.

About the author
One of the true "gangsters" of street lit, Gregory Garret is back! His fourth novel "Not on my Block," this time from Ave Money Publishing, packs more punch then ever as he takes us inside the criminal minds of The Bottom Boyz, a group of hustla's whose grind put the 'gr' in grimy. Garret gained his lit stripes with "Don't Mix the Bitter with the Sweet," "Playin' for Keeps," and "Pain Freak." With "Not on my Block" Garret elevates himself to captain of the block as he goes in deep and breaks down what happens when the Boyz' personal lives begin to unravel - because when you get in the game - the streets all ways and always win.
