The author that brought black literature to the streets is back. Weaving stories of deceit, sex, humor and race Iceberg Slim, best-selling author of Pimp, brings us the story of a hustler who doesn’t just play the con game, he transforms it. This is the gritty truth, the life of a hustler in south side Chicago where the only characters are those who con and those who get conned. Trick Baby tells the story of “White Folks,” a blue-eyed, light-haired, con-artist whose pale skin allows him to pass in the streets as a white man. Folks is tormented early in life, rejected by other children and branded a “Trick Baby,” the child conceived between a hooker and her trick. Refusing to abandon his life in the ghetto and a chance at revenge, Folks is taken under the wing of an older mentor, Blue. What happens next is not to be believed. Only Slim could bring us the story of a hustler, forced to learn the game and rise to the top. It’s Slim’s story and he tells it in the only way he knows how, in the language of the streets.

From the multi-million copy master of vernacular black literature and pioneeer of hip hop culture, a masterpiece of crime fiction set in Los Angeles' meanest, toughest streets. Here is the newly discovered novel by Iceberg Slim, the creator and undisputed master of African-American "street literature," a man who profoundly influenced hip hop and rap culture and probably has sold more books than any other black American author of the twentieth century (not that he saw the royalties from those sales). In many ways Iceberg Slim's most mature fictional work, Shetani's Sister relates, in taut, evocative vernacular torn straight from the street corner, the deadly duel between two complex anitheroes: Sergeant Russell Rucker, an LAPD vice detective attempting to clean up street prostitution and police corruption, and Shetani (Swahili for Satan), a veteran master pimp who controls his stable of whores with violence and daily doses of heroin.

Before Hip Hop, there was the pimp. The book that brought black literature to the streets is back to show the Hip Hop generation what it’s all about, where they came from. By telling the story of one man’s struggles and triumphs in an underground world, this book shows the game doesn’t change - it just has a different swagger. Iceberg Slim's story is now depicted in a major motion picture distributed worldwide. Iceberg Slim: Portrait of a Pimp shows Slim's transformation from pimp to the author of 7 classic books. As real as you can get without jumping in, this is the story of Slim’s life as he saw, felt, tasted, and smelled it. Only he could tell this story and make the reader feel it. If you thought Hustle & Flow was the true pimp story, this book is where it all began. This is the heyday of the pimp, the hard-won pride and glory, small though it may be; the beginnings of pimp before it was dragged in front of the camera, before pimp juice and pimp style. A trip through hell by one man who lived to tell the tale. The dangers of jail, addiction and death that are still all too familiar for today’s black community. Though it is a tale of his times, it will remain current and true for as long as there is a race bias, as long as there is a street life, as long as there is exploitation.

Street Poison is the first and definitive autobiography of Robert Beck, a.k.a. Iceberg Slim, at once one of America's most infamous pimps and history's best-selling African American writers. Slim became infamous for his ruthless pimping in the `40s and `50s; following a stint in solitary confinement, he would reinvent himself as a famous and influential author, writing his multi-million copy autobiography, Pimp, along with popular novels such as Trick Baby and Mama Black Widow. Iceberg Slim can be found at the foundation of modern black-and American-culture; his life and works have inspired the "blaxploitation" subgenre, rap and the gangsta rap subgenre, and icons like Ice-T, Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, Dave Chappelle, and Jay-Z. _x000D__x000D__x000D__x000D_Literature professor Justin Gifford's decade of research into the life of Robert Beck culminates in a colorful and compassionate biography of one of the twentieth century's most influential writers and captivating characters. Through interviews with Beck's family and research into archival material such as prison records and FBI files, Gifford explores the sexual abuse and racial violence that transform a young Robert Beck into Iceberg Slim, his cold-blooded history as a pimp, his transformative writing, and the subsequent exploitation by publishers that left Beck penniless. _x000D__x000D__x000D__x000D_Slim's story is not for the faint of heart but Gifford tells it without flinching. And in doing so, he creates an honest and engaging profile of one of American literature's most unique-and largely overlooked-figures.
