From Fritz, Lou Sims, Ace and others, from back in the day all the way to Maine and his crew, get ready for an inside look into what street life was like for her in Harlem.

    After reading this book I felt more of an understanding of how precious life is for us all. It also made me appreciate the strength behind this woman’s struggle to live fearlessly even if it came at a high cost. Honestly so many people would find this honest up close and personal story as authentic as it comes. So many could not have survived just a few of these life-changing events that unfolded over these years Ms. Tee experienced and survived through. This book takes you on a journey from dealing with how being an everyday young intelligent person and making that hard decision of really fighting yourself about what you want and what you really need. This is what can lead to a street business leadership role and a strong, smart driven young woman into a powerful money-making machine. When you are able to live fearlessly it can work in your favor and it can also take you to highs and lows like never before. This book will bring you to the place and time where it began and how it all gets going to the very end of this book you will not be disappointed. Loved this book, get your copy today. Love to read, Ms. Tee I am a fan for life, Kenya Woods.

    I can’t remember how I came across this book, but I am so glad I did. I love hearing stories about the 80s and 90s because it seems like it was a time to be alive. I was born in 95 so I did not get to experience the 90s as an adult and I wish I did. While reading this, I was amazed by it because you hear about the money, cars and even the hardships being in the streets. Ms. Tee was so opened about the hurt she has faced, and I am so happy she is still here to be able to explain to us what the streets were, what the streets taught you and what came with being in the streets.
