With some help from rapper 50 Cent, urban author Kwan has just released a hard-hitting book titled Blow (G Unit Books), a fictional story about some streetwise guys that get into hustling drugs and are soon stuck between a kilo and a hard place.
While Kwan reveals the secrets of the hood through his writing, instead of celebrating street life, he hopes to show kids the very real and tough consequences of going down the wrong path.
Says Kwan: I dont try to glorify the streets in my books because thats not positive or real. Id rather show the ramifications of street life so kids know the truth.
But although Kwan believes his gangsta novels are accurate depictions of hustlin and surviving in the streets, he understands if there are some haters out there.
He explains, My books are pretty accurate, depending on which side of the pistol youre on.
