Description

During the summer of 1991, the crack epidemic is destroying lives in cities across the U.S., and New York City is no exception. The members of Fourth Crew live in Queens, where crack addiction has swept through the ghetto and the dealers rule the streets. These young thugs come from middle-class homes in a middle-class neighborhood, but this doesn't make them immune from the lure of fast money and power. They enter the game with dreams of living the high life, but are soon swept up in the violence and betrayal that come with the territory. It doesn't take them long to understand that there are serious repercussions to chasing paper.

Loosely based on the author's life, Paper Chasers takes us into the minds of these young hustlers and gives readers a realistic portrait of life on the streets. It's a tale of good and evil that chronicles the ways in which money can destroy friendships, challenge morals, and corrupt even those sworn to serve and protect. An Essence bestseller upon its release, Paper Chasers has become a gritty street classic.
