Neither - both are studio gansta's trying to make it a reality. One of those bullets isn't going to miss!

Once you are rich there is no reason to be a gangster. Why? By your logic every rapper is a studio gangster.

MJ you can make it sound like anything you like. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So Goines might be Shakespeare to you. I am not trying to attack anyones preferences here just stating my opinion.

Oh, no, I feel ya...Im just saying the way your post was worded it sounded, in my opinion, like because his books are read by people incarcerated that they are, I dont know, lesser books or sumthin...also, I wondered...if you didnt like them, why did you read more than one?

I think I read two of them. And as to why? Cause I had nothing better to do and my "roomate" had them. Hence my opinion about the majority of the people who read his books.

RBG, are you sure you have never heard of him?...especially if you are into hip-hop?  Underground hip-hop, mainstream...it doesnt matter...his name comes up in rap all the time..usually saying something along the lines of  "im tha donald goines of rap"...man, Im telling you...his books are tha sh!t!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! John Grisham is like the white, toned down version of Donald Goines.

Hate to diss but, wtf? Donald Goines, you my friend may need to visit a neighborhood library. His books are garbage, written like he is a 13y/o middle school dropout with the vocabulary of a 7 yr/ old.  If you don't up your reading game you may be in for a long 3yrs.

Sometimes you have to look beyond the fact that his books aren't laced with flowery language and apppreciate the story.  I think his writing style adds credibility to his topics.  True his writings won't get him a Putlizer Prize but I think he does a good job in keeping with the Afrikan tradition of being a griot.  Plus his books are a good foundation to get people into reading who typically don't like to read.

EXACTLY.  and in my opinion, any book that can do this....is a piece of outstanding art.

I don't want to create another topic on this, but will you be sad WHEN 50 gets killed?

Make no mistake about it, I don't wish death on no man. But this dude has a good chance of getting murdered this year. It's usually the people that you surround yourself with that end up doing reckless sh*t. So to that effect, this dude has beef with:

D-Block=Yonkers
Terror Squad=Bronx
Nas, Ja, Smurf, etc...=Queens
Game=Compton
Shyne=Rikers

They're not gonna know where the shots are coming from. What is it gonna take for this knucklehead ass n-word to shut his mouth. One dude already got shot up, this sh*t ain't gonna stop till somebody gets killed, and it's gonna be his fault.

F*ck all that publicity sh*t, you don't think some knucklehead from The BX won't hesitate to pull the trigger just for the hell of it. Them cops/bodyguards ain't gonna be there 24/7.

Get Right, or get Left!!!!
