Publisher's Summary

Kendrick Lamar Duckworth was born on June 17, 1987, in Dominguez Hospital to Kenny Duckworth and Paula Oliver.

Nestled in the tumultuous confines of Compton, California, doctors and nurses at Dominguez Hospital had no idea what force they had just ushered into the world. At the time of Kendrick's birth, Kendrick's parents had recently moved to Compton from Chicago in an effort to raise Kendrick in a culture other than the one that they had grown up in. This precaution proved to be futile however as drug violence seemed to follow them all the way to the West Coast.

Kendrick's parents had recently had a big disagreement on the route of life Kendrick's father was taking. Faced with the ultimatum of making a conscious effort to change his ways or lose his wife and son, Kendrick's father complied with the move and attempted to start fresh in Compton.

Another black mans' story.

I'm glad I read it, not much different from the norm. From Raggs To Riches.
