World renowned and critically acclaimed Hip-Hop artist, Malice of the Clipse had achieved what many would consider the "America Dream." Coming from modest beginnings in Virginia Beach to acquiring a life of splender and luxury, it would seem to any "outsider looking in" that things could not be anymore complete. With a beautiful family, big home, sport cars, notoriety, and the respect of his community, who could have guessed the popular rapper was dealing with matters of life, both physical and spiritual. When the world saw him at his best he was actually at his worst. This phenomenal and life changing story should remind us all that the devil paints a pretty picture.

Most artist would just continue to "put on." Selling dope, selling records, and facing foreclosure doesn't mix, especially when you're excelling at doing both. So, with that said, why would anyone want to bear those truths? We all remember Mase with his pastoring, and coming back to rap, and now back pastoring; I don't sense that this will be the case with Malice, because like I said before, he pioneered coke rap, but through the music and the website and now the book, he promotes life change for the better, genuinely, realistically and truthfully.
Read the book. It made me take a look within myself, and i'm sure it'll do the same for you. Thank you Malice for the book as I have always been a Clipse fan since I first heard Grindin', but now as I can relate to your story because I too am seeking Christ for a true change in my life, I am an even bigger and forever a Clipse fan. Much continued success to you and your brother. Keep putting out that real because youngins need to see and hear both sides of the game, positive and negative. Thank you.
This book has the same style and feel. The story within itself is not too detailed or entertaining for that matter. The moments of finding a relationship with God through scripture, an indifferent attitude brought on by inactivity in spiritual matters coupled with monetary success, and the subtle humility of a man who seems to be a bit self-absorbed (as we all can be), still makes for a good read. Though not as fluid in prose as his raps may have been with rhythmic poetry, it is still a coherent account of a man who demonstrates a level of faith that can be described as belief seeking true passionate inner purpose and happiness.
