Description

Joseph Jomo Pierre's world is one of fatherless children, where boys turn to drugs and guns while girls turn to motherhood at the blink of an eye, where the colour of your skin dictates the course your life will take, where your brothers are as likely to pull you back down, as to help you get up.

Includes:

Born Ready a.k.a. Black on Both Sides
BeatDown a.k.a. Life
Pusha-Man a.k.a. The Seed
