rival m.c.s and their entourages are the subject of the fictional a hip hop story, more west side story than romeo and juliet, there is an ill-fated romance involved. i really have mixed feeling about this book. i thought the idea was good and the characters are believable. heru ptah has a good message, and i was a bit surprised by the ending. the issues are in the storytelling, the writing isn’t strong enough and the plot development was often too simple or cliched. i wanted it to be a bit edgier, as much as i hate to say it. good book, just flawed.
