    I bought this as an impulse purchase because it was displayed right next to the cash register at Shakespeare Co I d seen it in the AK Press catalog before, and that is probably what made me pick it up Pimp is entertaining in a kind of trashy way It s a biography about a part of life that many middle class suburban folks like me don t know anything about I have no idea how truthful the book is, or if it is sensationalism, or maybe even utter bullshit like those confessional books writ I bought this as an impulse purchase because it was displayed right next to the cash register at Shakespeare Co I d seen it in the AK Press catalog before, and that is probably what made me pick it up Pimp is entertaining in a kind of trashy way It s a biography about a part of life that many middle class suburban folks like me don t know anything about I have no idea how truthful the book is, or if it is sensationalism, or maybe even utter bullshit like those confessional books written for priveleged teen fucks such as Jay s Journa...

    Pimp is fantastic For about a decade now this has been one of my favorite books, and I don t see that changing any time soon Granted, I should immediately admit that I probably like this book for all the wrong reasons I m sure that the correct grounds for appreciating Pimp if such standards have been established are to ponder the struggles of the black man fighting to rise up in American society and to look at the infelicitous lot he s been subjected to and to carefully inspect the in Pimp is fantastic For about a decade now this has been one of my favorite books, and I don t see that changing any time soon Granted, I should immediately admit that I probably like this book for all the wrong reasons I m sure that the correct grounds for appreciating Pimp if such standards have been established are to ponder the struggles of the black man fighting to rise up in American society and to look at the infelicitous lot he s been subjected to and to carefully inspect the inherent disparities built into the system , which are broadly applied based solely on skin color I don t really care about all that mumbo jumbo, that garbage doesn t move me nor does it inspire any worthwhile thought on my behalf Hell, if anything, that crap pissed me off My enjoyment of Pimp is certainly less insightful and farpuerileof an appreciation of the basest elements of the story Slim rapping about social injustice yawn Slim talking all raw to the bitches in his stable before putting a foot in their a...
