In 1997, Chicago’s street gangs were highly organized, and the Ida B. Wells housing projects were one of the most dangerous in the nation. Two brothers, Carl and Tommy, were born into a world of hell and chaos, fighting every day to survive living with drugs - addicted parents. A child’s innocence was a small price to pay in order to secure the next fix. Abandoned by their mother after their father’s incarceration, they turned to their friend Lucky and joined the Gangster Disciples.

The narrator Kenneth Toles was excellent. The book was very good...I enjoyed the interaction of Lucky and Crusher with the women....and relationships in general....for me the gang back and forth was a bit long but ...I was sorry when the end came and look forward to Wade Beys next audio book..

Not True Crime or Biography
It’s an interesting story, but it was upsetting to learn that it was NOT based on anyone’s personal experiences or true/accurate accounts of crimes! Why would it be categorized as that?? It seems there are very, very small portions of it that are based on the author’s life/experiences, and everything else is made up! Frustrating that you’re not told until the end that it’s not true!
