C-Murder--rap star, media mogul and until recently, an incarcerated convicted murderer--is actually Corey Miller, the younger brother of Master P, founder and president of New Orleans-based No Limit Records. No Limit Records, Master P and C-Murder have all been influential in the powerful rise of Southern hip hop in mainstream music. Success can make you an easy target though; and C-Murder has always denied that he was involved in the murder, insisting his fame was behind the charges. But even before all the success, C-Murder's life was tough, from a troubled youth growing up in a ruthless New Orleans housing project to his struggle for personal and professional success. Now, drawing on that experience to write Death Around the Corner, C-Murder delivers a powerful novel sure to please both fans of his music and all fans of urban fiction.

Death Around The Corner managed to captivate me while telling the tale of Daquan who's struggling to survive being poor in New Orleans'Calliope projects. The typical urban formula is apparent in the book, tragic childhood breeds contempt for law enforcement which in turn spurns a life of crime. But what makes Death Around The Corner rise above similar books was it's ability to portray a moral message to it's readers.
A message so clearly depicted that I'll be happily requiring my teenage son to read this book to help spark a positive dialogue about life choices. A dialogue that a C-Murder album could never inspire which definately proves that this rapper can provide a service to young black men.
Daquan witnessed murder at a young age, and grew up so fast when he moved with Grandma Mama in CP. Jerome helped him age quicker than Daquan needed too, but he adapted to his environment. It was hard to remember that Daquan was so young, because the things he saw and did in his young life, no one should have to ever go through, and some never will. But thats the game.
The book was so real and not hard to believe. The events were dipicted in such detail, but not overdone. A great read, and I hope this won't be C-Murder's only book. GREAT JOB!
going to happen with the character in the book. I find that I would recommend this book to my friends. It's a must read.
