In addition to the TV series, Mr. Carey is also producing and directing a powerful documentary detailing the successful transition of four ex-offenders; a story with personal meaning to Mr. Carey as he was able to successfully reintegrate back into society in 2002 after spending 11 years in prison.

Mr. Carey's heart for the community in particular African American boys who may be facing some of the challenges he faced growing up in the inner city surrounded by drugs and violence led him to recently develop the program "Raise A Man". The purpose is to connect African American boys with
productive programs that are operated or facilitated by African American men and providing positive role
models as well as activities that encourage constructive life choices.

Additional Information

I have a CD "Imagine". The poetry on this project have made me a successful spokenword artist. I have hits that include "I Hate This Place", "Confidence", "She says she loves me" and "I Can't Read". It's available on amazon, itunes and at My new book "Why I Keep U A Secret" is a reflection of the softer side of me. This is how I view relationships. How making love to a woman the way she wants can leave me inside of her desire. From the caress of her feet to the enjoyment of her tongue has opened me up to new possibilities of loving a woman's essence. This book is something else.
