Description: Marcus has always known he was going to be a rapper, but when his mother is murdered, he turns to dealing and hustling drugs to pay the rent. As his world spirals out of control, he begins to apply the same manic intensity to his writing as he does to dealing; he has to write down his words to stay sane. For years, he endures this living hell until a tragedy that nearly kills him gets Marcus to change his life.
