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.
damn, oh well. But look, I promise, you are really missing out...his books are great...if you ever have time to grab one, please do and tell me what you think...
About Donald Goines. I read some of his books and I must say that they are very banal. I could see how some people could relate to his plots (Goines is very popular in jails), but thats about it.
