From the Back Cover:
"I breathe, eat, sleep, drink, and live this dream, and nobody will prevent us from accomplishing our mission of success and fulfillment. Many will try to discourage you, but don't let that stop you because you are that much closer to making history. Your struggle is classic, and everyone in this room is your brother in the struggle. We're all a family, and my family is my posse, and from now on my posse is Legendary, your posse is Legendary. That's who we are, "Legendary Entertainment", and we are an independent record label, staff, and family."
I then asked, "Are ya'll with me or what?" Motivated by the incredibly passionate speech that was just given, all the fellas stood up and shouted, "Legendary for life!!!" And from that point on I had become the leader of our organization and crew known as "The Legendary Boyz," and things were never the same again for me and my crew.
A cross between Straight Outta Compton, and Power, Legendary/Detroit Mentality is an urban Hip Hop tale that touches on the competitive but overlooked Hip Hop scene in the Motor City; and delves deep into the unique culture of drugs and violence in Detroit. With a plot that contains non-stop drama and gut-wrenching twists, Legendary/ Detroit Mentality is guaranteed to keep readers entrenched in this ghetto tale from start all the way to the book's surprising ending.
