Sulaiman Jenkinsabout this book: Parents murdered in front of him at a young age leaves drug dealing and violence as his main childrearers. Turning to rap as an emotional outlet, he crosses paths with the world's most legendary rapper in the process. Battling his own soul, a fabulous lifestyle and inextinguishable rage continually frustrate his search for inner peace. Life is ЯAW. This book is a biographical memoir of the life of Mutah "Napoleon" Beale, a former member of Tupac Shakur's rap group, the Outlawz. It creatively integrates the authentic voice of Mutah while providing an academic and historical lens on critical aspects of American society such as race relations, gang violence, mental health, entrepreneurship, and family life. The stories you read are sure to captivate you, touching your very core as you try to make sense of how "Napoleon" survived life in the face of such immeasurable odds. The insights into his life provide a therapeutic roadmap for anyone who struggles, emotionally, mentally, spiritually or otherwise, and leaves one feeling…hope is never lost.
I was inspired to write this book because of the unbelievable story of perseverance and resilience. Those who are interested in rap music and African American biographies would be most interested but essentially this book is for any American who wishes to gain introspection into many facets of American life.
