Following up on his New York Times bestselling memoir, hip hop kingpin 50 Cent has created his own line of “street fiction” novels featuring bestselling urban fiction authors called G-Unit books. The Diamond District, written with debut author Derrick Pledger, is about a diamond robbery that goes wrong.
THE STREET LIFE OR THE STRAIGHT LIFE?
D.J.'s got an Ivy League diploma, the sexiest girl in the city, and the five best friends a dude could want. What he doesn't have is cash. When his boy, Dre, steals some ice from a thug after a fight, D.J. comes up with a get-rich-quick scheme worth thousands of dollars. But in this high-stakes game, you don't lie, cheat, and steal without paying the price, and after staring down the barrel of a handgun, D.J. learns a life lesson that college didn't teach him. Now which will he choose -- the straight and narrow or the streets?
