This story is as real as they come, and embodies black literature at its finest. Brilliantly written for an urban audience, and well-seasoned with American street slang, Tamba narrates the struggles of a girl who was born into the street life.

After riding the wave of her brother who had been in the game came the struggle and the pain, she was caught between becoming a hoe or a pimp, on a quest to rise to the top. In Tamba’s words “You are either a hoe or a pimp in life; the choice is yours”.
