Hyena is a collection of autobiographical stories by Jude Angelini, which takes the listener on his journey of heartbreak, depravity, and hilarity, deftly moving between his adult life and his childhood growing up in a factory town outside of Detroit. Each story is told with brutal honesty yet maintains a gallows humor that will leave you shaking your head in disbelief.
Jude is one of the top hip-hop radio hosts on Sirius Satellite radio. His self-published, print-on-demand edition of Hyena has been an indie best seller, despite having no physical distribution. Its exploration of drugs, sex, and the human condition can be compared to Charles Bukowski, Hunter S. Thompson, Artie Lange, and Jim Norton. It also captures the hardscrabble culture, language, and landscape of postindustrial Detroit, from which came some of pop culture's most compelling artists.

A non douchey Tucker Max
Each story was emotionally jarring and thought provoking
Well worth the listen.
Became a fan of the Jude show on Sirus XM radio browsing the channels one day and became hooked by the DJ’s relatable comments, thoughts, and HUMOR!!! This guy was comedy and constantly listen when I’m in the car to pass time and enjoy the consistent LA traffic.
The books have some interesting stories about adulthood, friendships, randomness adventures with females, and experimentation to say the least. I’ve shared many similar stories throughout my late 20’s now in my mid 30’s the adventures Jude shares with the reader through vidid, wild, story telling simply makes me as a reader feel like I’m along sitting shotgun riding along co-pilot.
RECOMMEND. Strap on and enjoy the wicked adventures.
