Book Description

Promise is a spectacular story of a fearless and courageous youth who clawed his way to the top, making hard and life threatening decisions to take over the deadly West Coast streets of Sacramento. Disappointed by his father’s broken promises and deserted by “Crackhead Tina,” his prostitute mother, Mike Irvin becomes “Promise” and makes a promise to himself to get all he ever wanted—to get rich or die trying, no matter what the cost. Taking on Sacramento’s most notorious kingpin and rising to legendary status, Promise makes good on the words he lives by: Never Make A Promise You Can’t Keep!

Once you get over him refering to his girl as B*tch all the time it is a very good book.. I enjoyed the hunger that he had and the way his girl was down with him through it all.
