Summary

My name is Brian (Glaze) Gibbs. I was once a problem causing havoc in my community and with people, having a small army following me all for the wrong reasons. Today, I am seeking to share my story of me and some of the major figures from the 1980s and 1990s.

Illustrating the good, the bad, and the ugly outcome of our lifestyle, I am attempting to give an avid picture of what the future has to offer for anyone who wants to be a career criminal by committing crimes to make a quick dollar, and who oppose being a law-abiding, tax-paying working-class citizen.

I need everyone's help to get this generation to stop playing Grand Theft Auto with their lives. My objective is to save as many lost souls as possible, and to help those that are at risk, by stopping them from making that multi-billion-dollar prison system their home.

Brian 'Glaze' Gibbs - A street smart story teller

As my first introduction to audible books, I was quite enthused with the manner in which the story of Brian 'Glaze' Gibbs engaged my attention and interest throughout. I loved the story because it presented an authentic and relatable story to my own experience growing up in a not too dissimilar environment. The narrator was superb and maintained a pace that was both rhythmic and enthralling to listen to. The most memorable moment was the instance where Glaze was being approached by two of his nemesis that were well known killers and robbers of pushers whilst he stood outside a shop speaking with a female friend. The level of bravado and blind instinct to not only out think but more importantly out-act his fellow actors to assume (and we know what it means to assume) he was more prepared (tooled-up) than he actually was. It shows the power of energy states within the Animal Kingdom and how well containing your energy state (s) can be the difference between life or death. A book worthy of a movie. Top of the Class!!!

I waited anxiously for this for a long time and believe me it was worth the wait.. Only now I am anxiously awaiti ng volume 2. No fluff, No pointless profanity. Brian GLAZE Gibbs takes the listener on a walk down the corridors of his private mental vault. No censor, No fiction and No cover. Just the raw, naked facts of his personal life experiences. I love it.. and you will two.

Crime is not the way. Stop and think.

This needs to be shared around the world. Brian is telling his story to help stop the mentality that many Young Men fall into. He is telling his story so that our youth today think twice about making a decision that could ultimately end their lives. Thank you Brian for sharing these stories with us and dedicating your life to getting the word out the Crime doesn't pay.

Glaze is a good storyteller

This guy is good. I am not sure how to feel about a person Eno has killed 6 human beings, but I don't come from that world.
