Freeway Ricky Ross is the West Coast's pre-eminent street legend. From the dawn of the crack era he was the man to see in South Central, Los Angeles to buy multiple kilos of cocaine at our rate prices. From the ghettos of the City of Angels, his drug empire spread state to state, across the nation, due to his affiliation with the Crips and Bloods, who became roving drug dealers, leaving death and destruction in their wake. Freeway Rick is the man credited with supplying the cocaine that fuelled their surge and migration out of LA, enabling them to infect our country with crack, gangbanging and drive-by shooting. For this reason, Freeway Rick Ross is known as the Godfather of Crack and has been blamed by the U.S. government for the crack epidemic. This book is the most concise account of Freeway Rick's story to date. It also goes into how he won his appeal and gained his release from prison and his ongoing battle with the rapper Rick Ross over the use of his name.

When we think of drugs, we immediately think of the old guard drugs like cocaine, heroin and hemp. Other than that, there are for some time synthetic drugs (XTC) made in many forms, colors and effects. We talk in this book about the ordinary old-fashioned drugs in the form of cocaine. WeOre going to expose what is behind and who are the true drug dealers. The old-fashioned drug is still the trade with which the super rich enrich themselves. Also, it is the elite who use a lot of this stuff. You can make it clear that most of the top in the business world, but also the politics and those who move into higher layers, are the permanent users of the cocaine stuff. Often in the most pure form and often used daily like a breakfast and dinner. But first I like to elaborate some things; what is cocaine and who are the driving forces behind these drugs according to world organizations of detecting drugs. Let's talk about drugs."

Inside the Crips is the memoir of the author Colton Simpson's life as a Crip--beginning at the tender age of ten in the mid-seventies--and his prison turnaround nearly twenty-five years later. Colton ("C-Loc") Simpson calls himself the only gang member ever allowed to quite the Crips--and one of the few to survive into his thirties. Simpson--son of a ballplayer for the California Angels and a mother who was relentlessly rough with her sons after their fathers left her--became a gang member at ten. Inside The Crips tells the remarkable--and at the same time, all too common--story of gang life in the 1980s in immediate and descriptive prose that makes this book a gripping true-life read. Inside The Crips covers the rush that comes from participating in gang violence and the years-long wars between the Bloods and Crips. Simpson's story also puts the reader in the middle of the struggle between the Crips and corrections officers in Calipatria prison. It covers gang life from the mid-seventies to the mid-nineties, and introduces characters it's impossible not to care about: Simpson's fellow gangbanger Smile; and Gina, the long-suffering friend and mother of two sons who married Simpson in prison.

For many African Americans of a certain demographic the sixties and seventies were the golden age of political movements. The Civil Rights movement segued into the Black Power movement which begat the Black Arts movement. Fast forward to 1979 and the release of Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight." With the onset of the Reagan years, we begin to see the unraveling of many of the advances fought for in the previous decades. Much of this occurred in the absence of credible, long-term leadership in the black community. Young blacks disillusioned with politics and feeling society no longer cared or looked out for their concerns started rapping with each other about their plight, becoming their own leaders on the battlefield of culture and birthing Hip-Hop in the process. In Somebody Scream, Marcus Reeves explores hip-hop music and its politics. Looking at ten artists that have impacted rap—from Run-DMC (Black Pop in a B-Boy Stance) to Eminem (Vanilla Nice)—and puts their music and celebrity in a larger socio-political context. In doing so, he tells the story of hip hop's rise from New York-based musical form to commercial music revolution to unifying expression for a post-black power generation.

How The Left Can Win Arguments And Influence People

If we were to rely on what the pundits and politicians tell us, we would have to conclude that America is a deeply conservative nation. Americans, we hear constantly, detest government, demand lower taxes and the end of welfare, and favor the death penalty, prayer in school, and an absolute faith in the free market. And yet Americans believe deeply in progressive ideas. In fact, progressivism has long been a powerful force in the American psyche. Consider that a mere generation ago the struggle for environmentally sound policies, for women's rights, and for racial equality were fringe movements. Today, open opposition to these core ideals would be political suicide. Drawing on this wellspring of American progressivist tradition, John K. Wilson has penned an informal handbook for the pragmatic progressive. Wilson insists that the left must become more savvy in its rhetoric and stop preaching only to the converted. Progressives need to attack the tangible realities of the corporate welfare state, while explicitly acknowledging that "socialism is," as Wilson writes, "deader than Lenin." Rather than attacking a "right-wing conspiracy," Wilson argues that the left needs one, too. Tracing how well-funded conservative pressure groups have wielded their influence and transformed the national agenda, Wilson outlines a similar approach for the left. Along the way, he exposes the faultlines of our poll- and money-driven form of politics, explodes the myth of "the liberal media," and demands that the left explicitly change its image. Irreverent, practical, and urgently argued, How The Left Can Win Arguments and Influence People charts a way to translate progressive ideals into reality and reassert the core principles of the American left on the national stage.
