Editorial Reviews

Review

"Trick is a South Florida product and and has paid his dues to get to where he is... from making music to giving back to the community. We've all had some struggles along the way but Trick has persevered through it all. He has always showed me love and I'm proud to call him my homeboy."
- Udonis Haslem, Power Forward for the Miami Heat

About the Author

Trick Daddy is widely recognized as the greatest rap artist Florida had ever produced and one of the godfathers of Southern hip hop. His 2001 hit, “I’m a Thug” has been credited with infusing hip hop with new life. Blessed with the chameleon-like ability to flip from a booty-shakin’ party starter to insightful educator, Trick has been one of the most prolific southern talents since his introduction on Uncle Luke’s timeless 1996 dance floor staple, alongside the likes of T.I., Ludacris and Lil Wayne.  The former convicted felon and ex-drug dealer has engaged listeners worldwide by making the “thug life” relevant to audiences across racial and economic lines. 

Peter Bailey is currently the host of NBC’s nationally syndicated entertainment segment "Niteside NiteCap”, his award-winning work has appeared in the Miami Herald, Time, Newsweek, and The Village Voice.

A MUST read. I absolutely loved this book! It well-written, real, and raw. Your emotions will definitely be stirred with this one. I pre-ordered this book and read it in two days. I could not put it down. This book gave me a greater understanding of the child he (almost) never was, the man he became, and the man he has become. Great work!

When I received my copy in the mail and started reading this book, I never put it down and finished it the same night! This book allowed you to experience his life of pain, heartache, disappointment and triumph. It allows the reader a better glimpse and understanding of why young black males sometimes make certain decisions that can be life altering. Trick didn't fail in this book, he showed his pain, he didn't mask it. He expressed his true inner feelings, something that most black males don't ever do. I think that this is a book which all young black males should read because Trick is trying to impress upon the reader that youth don't have to make the same choices and travel the same road as he did. I am ordering a bulk shipment for the youth of my organization to pass out. I am extremely proud of this book and the work Trick has done! Kudos to you Mr. Young for letting people into your life!!!!!!

This book really captures life in the inner city. It may be an eye-opener for a lot of people. It really introduced me to the kind of life that some people don't even know exists!
