(AllHipHop News) Former Philadelphia drug kingpin Ace Capone is preparing to a new title titled “Go Hard: The Takedown of Ace Capone,” which will chronicle the rise and fall of his label, Take Down Records.
Ace Capone, born Alton Coles, was the CEO of the label until March of 2008, when he was convicted of running a $25 million cocaine operation, that distributed drugs in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware.
While he was on the streets, Take Down artists like Bugsy and Snake worked with Philly rappers like Freeway, Beanie Sigel and Tone Trump.
“This book was not written to glorify the game. It was written to reveal the aftermath of what happens as a result of being raised in an environment upon poor parenting skills, as well as being a key player in the streets,” Ace Capone told AllHipHop.com in a statement. “Although the book is solely for entertainment purposes for the readers, the overall gain and lesson of this book is to learn from our mistakes and to lead those that are mislead/misguided.”
“Go Hard” will be the first in a trilogy of books Ace Capone is writing from the Big Sandy Federal Correctional Institution, where he is currently serving life + 55 years.
The book is being released by Key To Life Publishing, a company that releases positive influential books.
In addition to the “Go Hard” series, the book imprint is planning the release of “Product of My Environment,” which will be an explanation guide for troubled youth and their parents.
A “Go Hard” book release party is slated for Friday, September 14 at Millcreek Tavern in Philadelphia.
