Publisher's Summary

"Have you ever wanted something so bad you was willing to crawl over bodies to get it? I mean, fiend for it so hard it didn’t matter who you hurt, how low you had to scrape, it was gonna be yours? That’s what music and balling did for me. They were the fundamentals behind my rise… and the perpetrators of my fall. They called me Harlem’s black prince. A rising star who carried street dreams on his back. But the streets, ya know. They got a way of coming for theirs. A habit of sneaking up on you when you ain’t looking."

Andre “Thug-A-Licious” Williams came up on Harlem’s meanest streets. But thanks to his nearly ankle-breaking hoop moves and explosive mic skills, he made it out—and dominates the rap scene with chart-topping urban hits.

Thug has sexed all the hottest freaks and has a slew of baby mamas to show for it. But no matter how many women he takes to his bed, only one can claim his heart: successful beauty salon owner Carmeshia “Lil Muddah” Vernoy, his ride-or-die queen, who has stuck by his side and had his back through thick and thin.

But Thug also has a nightmarish history with someone else. Pimp Williams, his older cousin and ex–partner in crime, is a cold-blooded killer who spreads havoc all over Harlem and will stop at nothing to get what he wants—even if it means betraying his own family, crushing Carmeshia, and forcing Harlem’s black prince down to his knees and back to his bloody beginnings.

Noire is a number-one Essence best-selling author from the streets of New York and the editor-in-chief of NoireMagazine.com.

What the Critics Say

"Following street lit sensation Candy Licker, Noire returns to gangsta Harlem to tell the tale of Andre ‘Thug-a-Licious’ Williams, a ‘Dawg-4-Lyfe’ whose death is announced in the preface and whose life unfurls in a series of dark, stop-start flashbacks…. The lives of all concerned are unrelentingly grim, but the sex really is hot." (Publishers Weekly)
"Andre Williams, aka Thug-a-Licious, is a Harlem boy determined to make good relying on his talent and ambition…After a short life of living for the moment, loving and leaving women, he finally has to pay for his past sins, and Carmeshia retaliates for his demise." (Booklist)

    "Really enjoyed this book"
    What made the experience of listening to Thug-A-Licious the most enjoyable?

    It was a good story that flowed nicely and at a perfect pace. That narrator also did well.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Thug-A-Licious?

    The robbery was such a pivotal point for thug. I was on edge. Intense scene.


    What does Nicole Small bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    At first I didn't like the idea of her reading from a first person perspective, but I got over it. Each character had a distinctive voice. You could tell aspects of their personalities through her performance.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not a strong reaction, but I was rooting for Thug.


    Any additional comments?

    The reason I didn't read the book sooner is because of the title, but I was not disappointed. I will definitely listen again.

    "3 stars"

    Thug was a sexoholic! Lol the sad part is he wanna do everybody raw, don't pull out then be shocked when the girls tell him they're pregnant, come on man! The ending for him was sad, I didn't like that mudda hid stuff from everyone, if she had been honest their story would have ended a whole lot better than what it did. She upset me when she kept filling the little boy's head up with detailed lies about his "father", it all came back to bite her in the ass real tough smh. All in all, Nicole s,all was great, love her, the story could've been a little better.

    "Too Much"
    What would have made Thug-A-Licious better?

    At least one redeeming character. Every last one of them was a hot mess.com including Karmisha, though she tired to be better.


    What was most disappointing about Noire’s story?

    Oh I don't know, the rape scenes, bad rap lyrics or a man sleeping with so many women unprotected and not catching HIV which I think would be more realistic.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not one.


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't even finsh this book because it was such a hard listen. The narrators voice is fine, but the story itself was just too miserable. Karmisha showed the most promise and I just wanted her to find a way out of harlem. And the idea that a child can inherit the devil qualities of his father without living in that enviorment is extremly questionable. In all I really hated this book.
