After the deaths and arrests of his entire crew and an informant-fueled investigation into his past, the man known on the streets as Animal relocates to Texas and finds fame and stardom as the newest act signed to the notorious Big Dawg Entertainment. His girlfriend, Gucci, is thrilled when she gets the news that he’s coming back to New York on a promotional tour, but when she discovers the hidden agenda behind his homecoming nothing can prepare her for the life-altering consequences that will come of it.

There goes the neighborhood . . . again.

REVIEWS

Praise for Welfare Wifeys

Praise for K'wan

“One of hip-hop fiction’s hottest authors . . . fans will appreciate many of the qualities that make K’wan a writer to check for: gritty settings, memorable dialogue, and authentic action.”KING magazine on Street Dreams

“K’wan once again comes through with a gritty and violent yarn that raises the street-lit bar.”Library Journal on Section 8

“A street-lit version of The Godfather . . . Hoodlum does what literature should do. It shows us that writing really matters.”Library Journal on Hoodlum

"K'wan excels at dialogue, and his densely packed universe has every element of successful street drama."˜—Publishers Weekly on Welfare Wifeys

“Quick and entertaining, K'wan's latest captures a small slice of modern urban life with a great degree of credibility and finds in Animal his most conflicted, memorable, and likable character yet.”—Publishers Weekly on Section 8

“The big draw here is the electric prose, which is imbued with profane, comic lyricism.”Publishers Weekly on Hood Rat
