Hmmm.. Mixed Feelings
This book, for the most part, seems like a basket of apples mixed with oranges. You can almost taste the difference between the paragraphs initiated by 50 Cent and those of Robert Green. The Narcissism of the NY Thug Rapper takes alot from the book, but not enough to make it totally useless. The book has its demographic; that cannot be faulted. If the aim was to encourage self reliance and force of will, it was a fair attempt. If the aim was to create a hood classic and reaffirm the head strong arrogance of the street peddler, then it was a success.
