October 2, 2012 1 comment


On October 2, 2012 Cash Money Content, the book publishing arm of the iconic record label Cash Money Records, home to multi-platinum artists Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne and Drake, will release the street novel, ANIMAL from the 2008 Black Press “Author of the Year” K’wan Foye. A complex and bloody tale from one of this generation’s most talented and gritty writers, the story follows Animal, the infamous fugitive from K’wan’s well-known Hood Rat Series, on a tragic trail of revenge. The novel takes the reader through the rugged streets of Puerto Rico to the scene of the original crime, Harlem, NY, following the footsteps of a ruthless murderer.


Animal survived both unfathomable abuse from his family and the unforgiving streets, but stilled learned to love. Infamous for turning at any moment into a cold-blooded killer, Animal is the product of the world we all live in. There but for the grace of God go . . . any of us.

That’s why I’m so giddy about the work my good friend Shawn Dove has been doing at the Campaign for Black Male Achievement, an initiative started in 2008 by billionaire George Soros and the Open Society Institute to funnel crucial resources to programs around the country that are toiling on behalf of black boys. This is a huge week for Shawn and the Campaign for Black Male Achievement because they are intimately involved with two vital—and hopeful!—reports on black boys that have just been released.
