  • TimeWillTellu1

    Those books do wonders!

  • Hip-Hop owes Donald Goines some mega bucks..90% of these artists have self crafted images based on what can be found on his books. Heck many have admitted to doing so.

  • Pimp & The Naked Soul of Iceberg Slim are good reads. This man is a poignant writer, I really enjoyed his books & style of writing. Much love for getting his life together
