Have you ever wanted something so bad you was willing to crawl over bodies to get it? I mean, fiend for it so hard it didnt matter who you hurt, how low you had to scrape, it was gonna be yours? Thats what music and balling did for me. They were the fundamentals behind my rise and the perpetrators of my fall. They called me Harlems black prince. A rising star who carried street dreams on his back. But the streets, ya know. They got a way of coming for theirs. A habit of sneaking up on you when you aint looking. Andre Thug-A-Licious Williams came up on Harlems meanest streets. But thanks to his nearly ankle-breaking hoop moves and explosive mic skills, he made it outand dominates the rap scene with chart-topping urban hits. Thug has sexed all the hottest freaks and has a slew of baby mamas to show for it. But no matter how many women he takes to his bed, only one can claim his heart: successful beauty salon owner Carmeshia Lil Muddah Vernoy, his ride-or-die queen, who has stuck by his side and had his back through thick and thin. But Thug also has a nightmarish history with someone else. Pimp Williams, his older cousin and expartner in crime, is a cold-blooded killer who spreads havoc all over Harlem and will stop at nothing to get what he wantseven if it means betraying his own family, crushing Carmeshia, and forcing Harlems black prince down to his knees and back to his bloody beginnings.
