Some brief overview of book

A PERFECT COMPANION READ TO THE SHOWTIME DOCUMENTARY, WU-TANG CLAN OF MICS AND MEN Selected as a Best Book of the Year by Esquire "Couldn't put it down." Charlamagne Tha God "Mesmerizing." Raekwon da Chef "Insightful, moving, necessary." Shea Serrano "Cathartic." The New Yorker "A classic." The Washington Post The explosive, never-before-told story behind the historicrise of the Wu-Tang Clan, as told by one of its founding members, Lamont "U-God" Hawkins. "Its time to write down not only my legacy, but the story of nine dirt-bomb street thugs who took our everyday lifescrappin and hustlinand tryin to survive in the urban jungle of New York Cityand turned that into something bigger than we could possibly imagine, something that took us out of the projects for good, which was the only thing we all wanted in the first place." Lamont "U-God" Hawkins The Wu-Tang Clan are considered hip-hop royalty. Remarkably, none of the founding members have told their storyuntil now.

Here, for the first time, the quiet one speaks. Lamont "U-God" Hawkins was born in Brownsville, New York, in 1970. Raised by a single mother and forced to reckon with the hostile conditions of project life, U-God learned from an early age how to survive.

And surviving in New York City in the 1970s and 1980s was no easy taskespecially as a young black boy living in some of the citys most ignored and destitute districts. But, along the way, he met and befriended those who would eventually form the Clans core RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ol Dirty Bastard, Inspectah Deck, Ghostface Killah, and Masta Killa. Brought up by the streets, and bonding over their love of hip-hop, they sought to pursue the impossible music as their ticket out of the ghetto.

U-Gods unforgettable first-person account of his journey,from the streets of Brooklyn to some of the biggest stages around the world, is not only thoroughly affecting, unfiltered, and explosive but also captures, invivid detail, the making of one of the greatest acts in American music history.
