The primary and definitive biography of certainly one of America's bestselling, infamous, and influential writers of the 20th century: Iceberg Slim, né Robert Beck, creator of the multimillion-copy memoir Pimp and such equally fashionable novels as Trick Child and Mama Black Widow. From a profession as a, sure, ruthless pimp within the '40s and '50s, Iceberg Slim refashioned himself as the primary and nonetheless the best of "road lit" masters, whose vivid books have made him an icon to such rappers as Ice-T, Jay-Z, and Snoop Dogg and a presiding spirit of "blaxploitation" tradition. You possibly can't perceive modern black (and even American) tradition with out reckoning with Iceberg Slim and his many acolytes and imitators. Literature professor Justin Gifford has been researching the life and work of Robert Beck for a decade, culminating in Avenue Poison, a colourful and compassionate biography of one of the crucial difficult figures in twentieth-century literature. Drawing on a wealth of archival materials—together with FBI recordsdata, jail information, and interviews with Beck, his spouse, and his daughters—Gifford explores the sexual trauma and racial violence Beck endured that led to his reinvention as Iceberg Slim, certainly one of America's most notorious pimps of the 1940s and '50s. From pimping to penning his profoundly influential confessional autobiography, Pimp, to his involvement in radical politics, Gifford's biography illuminates the life and works of certainly one of American literature's most unusual renegades.http://books.google.com/books/previewlib.js

Raised up in The Inner City Projects Called FAIR FIELD COURT Located In The (HEART) City Of Richmond, Va by a single Black Woman who I call (MOM). How Hard Can That Be, I know you would probably guess that with ONE CHILD it wouldn't be so hard, BUT it wasn't, it was (MIGHTY HARD), To Raise A Young Boy
(ESPECIALLY ONE LIKE ME) to be a Grown Man a Father ? My Mother worked HARD you hear me. 2 jobs, one in the early morning and One in Late Evenings. I am being 1000000 with you when I say this, (NOT 100) most of the time when she left in the Morning for work, she never returned home until late evening, it was straight to the part time job from that Morning Job, just to provide for Herself and Me. You know some, Now that I am grown, or have grown up, I KNOW HOW HARD THAT WAS FOR HER. (THESE DAYS, THAT'S GOTTA BE EVEN HARDER, I WOULD BELIEVE. ) Some -things do change, but never MY MOM'S LOVE FOR ME. What did change was ME. I started growing up, became a father @ 20 (KINDA GOOD THOUGH RIGHT?), went through a lot of turmoil though, Dropped Out Of School. (TOOK MOM THROUGH HELL - YOU HERE ME!). and YES, I KNOW I DID... NOW. I end up GOING TO JAIL on her (MY MOM) a couple of times. Matter of Fact, to Keep it 1000000 That's all I did for small things though, like Driving. I end up having 4 more Kids, whom I love dearly, like any father would. NOW, My Mom works a part time job now (STILL ABOUT THAT MONEY) and she's Retired. BUT ONE THING, MOM don't only take care of HERSELF & Me now, BUT (MY KIDS) Her Grandkids. HEY, What can I say, SHE'S MY MOM. "Love you Mother".. and THANKS.. BUT Y'ALL STILL GOTTA REMEMBER, >>> (I AM A PRODUCT OF MY ENVIRONMENT) <<<
