DEATH AROUND THE CORNER by C-Murder

There’s a time to go hard, and time to chill…

The day the cops took his daddy away for murder, a new emotion gripped five-year-old Daquan Watson’s heart: Hate. It would stay with as he came up in The Calliope, New Orleans’ most notorious, drug infested housing projects, where every brother is a soldier goin’ to war every day. Grandma Mama does her best to raise him the right way, but those streets keep calling. Trying to get ahead in such a harsh environment can make your heart turn cold – unless you learn how to listen to your guardian angel…

There’s a time to take one for the team…

But the vilence at The Calliope is nothing compared to what Daquan experiences doing time at Scotland Correctional Center for youth, watching cats get stabbed over card games, young boys get raped, and racism of the worst kind, even from the black guards. A voice inside tells him he’d better learn to use his anger – instead of letting it use him, ya heard?

And time to THINK FOR YOURSELF…

From the moment Daquan heard his first blast of hip hop, the music spoke to him, and from him. While his friends are getting their street hustle cracking, his way with words is leading him in another direction. With a good woman by his side, he’s owning up to his responsibilities and building a new future with New Orleans’ biggest rap label. But what about his homies in The CP3 – will they ever truly be free? Daquan knows his hardened heart will never allow him to become a victim. He can only pray it won’t allow him to become a predator…
