Robert Beck (August 4, 1918 – April 28, 1992), also known as Iceberg Slim, was a reformed pimp and American author of urban fiction.
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.
Good 2 Go Publishing does not manage Iceberg Slim nor have they every published one of his books, this site is just
promoting books in the urban fiction genre.
