For decades, serial entrepreneur James Prince presided over Rap-A-Lot Records, one of the first and most successful independent rap labels.

I’d subtitle this, “The 49th Law of Power” This was not my typical reading venture but I thoroughly enjoyed this work.Prince writes from a rostrum of wisdom clothed with the swagga of a southern uncle. It was his business dealings and the conspiracies that surrounded him-still at a relatively young age-that captured my attention. With a life such as his, you get the feeling he writes with ‘necessary omissions’. What is stated is intelligently woven into the fabric of the book and J.Prince still leaves you with enough…

Great and inspiring book I grew up in poverty in the hood just like j prince but not in Houston instead Miami but regardless of what city in America you are from poverty is just poverty, it sucks and it is truly depressing ! And to see how he made it out and never forget those still struggling and gave back too many from his neighborhood a second chance at life should be an inspiration for many others.

Decent I gave this book 3 out 5 stars because in my opinion it wasn’t a true biography. It was more like a book filled with major key stories from his life. One minute he’s 34 the next he’s 11 the next he’s 23. It was more business than personal. And I expect more personal in a biography. I will say his faith carried him through and helped him in a lot of business situations. Because he honestly doesn’t seem like a good business man. People just fear him.
