"Lewis has composed an observant and urban B-boy's rites of passage . . . a hiphop bildungsroman told in prose full of buoyancy and bounce."--Greg Tate, author of Flyboy in the Buttermilk

Scars of the Soul is a confessional, stylistic account (in the Joan Didion tradition) of coming-of-age in the Bronx alongside the birth and evolution of hip-hop culture.

He is a former editor of Vibe and XXL , and his work has been published in The Nation , The Source , the Village Voice , Rolling Stone , Essence and other magazines. He holds a B.A. in sociology from Morehouse College and studied at the Fordham University School of Law.
