The Way It IsPaperback - 2016
In the streets, where thuggin' and criminal activity are certainly the norm, damn near anything goes, and no one takes advantage of this more than Derrick Bellamy. In his quest to get his mother and little brother out of the hood, he chooses to hustle coke. To assist Derrick, his girlfriend decides to introduce him to Fat Jerome, a big-timer in the drug game. When she reveals a previous dark encounter between her and Fat Jerome, though, Derrick becomes furious and begins to contemplate the unthinkable.
