EXCERPTS FROM "QUEEN OF DC"


EXCERPT ONE

"YEAH. HIS ASS WAS GONE. I SAW THAT SHIT IN HIS EYES WHEN HE GOT OUT THE TRUCK. WHILE I WAITED FOR MY CAR TO WARM UP, I COUNTED WHAT WAS IN THE ENVELOPE. 30,000 DOLLARS CASH.. I WAS LIKE DAMN. I KNEW I HAD A GOOD SHOT, BUT DAMN. IN THE LAST FEW DAYS I HAD GOT 130,000 DOLLARS IN CASH. A HOUSE, A CAR, AND A 3 BRAND NEW BURNERS OUT THIS NIGGA. AND A 2500 DOLLAR LOCKET FROM ANOTHER. AND I ONLY HAD TO FUCK ONCE. I STARTED THINKING MAYBE I WAS JUMPING INTO THE WRONG PROFESSION, IF YOU GET MY DRIFT. MAYBE I SHOULD PACK IT UP AND MAKE A KILLIN IN ANOTHER TOWN. NAH, IíM JUST FUCKIN WITH YOU. "



EXCERPT TWO

"IT WAS SO EMBARRASSING. THEY SNATCHED MY WHOLE ENTOURAGE OUT THE TRUCKS. KIDS AND ALL. THEY HAD US HANDCUFFED AND SITTING ON THE SIDE OF THE INTERSTATE 95 AS THEY PUT THE KIDS IN A FUCKING "PADDIE WAGON". THEY WENT THRU ALL OUR STUFF RIGHT THERE ON THE SIDE OF THE FUCKING ROAD. THEN THEY PLACED EVERYBODY UNDER ARREST, AND START READING US OUR RIGHTS. THEY HAULED EVERYBODY OFF TO JAIL. EACH OF US THAT STEPPED OFF THAT PLANE HAD A LAUNDRY LIST OF CHARGES. FROM ME, ALL THE WAY DOWN TO MY GRANDMA VICKEY. THIS SHIT WAS ABSURD.............................................................

NEXT THEY PULLED A "RAYFUL" ON US. THEY DIDNíT TAKE US TO A JAIL. WE WERE SHIPPED OFF TO QUANTAICO TO THE FUCKING MARINE BASE TO BE HOUSED AT. THEY HAD US ALL ON LOCKDOWN FOR 23 HOURS A DAY. WE COULDNíT HAVE NO CONTACT WITH EACH OTHER, OR ANYBODY ELSE. THIS WENT ON FOR 2 WEEKS. WE ATE ALONE, SLEPT ALONE, AND THE ONE HOUR THAT WE DID GET OFF OF LOCKDOWN, THEY HAD ARRANGED SO WE WOULD NOT HAVE IT TOGETHER."

EXCERPT THREE

"OVER THE SUMMER, I WROTE MY SECOND BOOK "SNITCHES" (DEDICATE TO ALL THE FAKE MOTHERFUCKAS IN THE WORLD). AND IT HIT THE SHELVES IN SEPTEMBER 2005. EVERYBODY WANTED TO BE APART OF THE MOVEMENT. THEY WAS BUYING MY SHIT LIKE HARRY POTTER BOOKS.

BUT WHEN I CAME BACK TO MY CITY IN SEPTEMBER, IT DIDNíT FEEL THE SAME. IT DIDNíT FEEL LIKE HOME ANYMORE. SO ME AND MY KIDS MOVED DOWN TO ATLANTA IN OCTOBER.. AND 2 WEEKS AFTER WE MOVED THERE, I FOUND LOVE. HIS NAME WAS DOMOMIC "DOMO". AND HE WAS A REGULAR DUDE. HE WORKED FOR THE TELEPHONE COMPANY. HE CAME TO FIX MY TELEPHONE LINES AT MY HOUSE AFTER A STORM. WE STARTED TALKING AND I FOUND OUT HE WAS FROM DC ALSO. HE HAD CAME DOWN TO ATLANTA BACK IN 99 TO ESCAPE THE MADNESS MY CITY HAD TO OFFER. NEXT THING I KNEW HE ASKED ME OUT. AND I EXCEPTED. SO WE DATED FROM OCTOBER UNTIL NEW YEARS EVE. THATíS WHEN HE PROPOSED. AND I EXCEPTED.

NO HE WASNíT CHASING MONEY. HE AINT NO SHIT ABOUT MY PAST AND THE TYPE OF BREAD I WAS HOLDING. HE WAS JUST A REGULAR DUDE WHO WAS FEELING THE KID AND I WAS FEELING HIM TOO. I AINT TELL HIM THE TRUTH ABOUT WHO I REALLY WAS UNTIL AFTER WE WERE MARRIED."
