Crack: Volume 2: Lockdown - Shaka Senghor

Crack: Volume 2 – the highly anticipated sequel to Crack: Volume 1 – Shaka Senghor takes his readers deep inside the world of hip-hop beefs, greed, betrayal and the corruption of our prison systems.
Some of our favorites from Crack: Volume One are along for the ride – Damu is now diving into the world of hip-hop with the ownership of Great Minds Studio. His studio is on its way to notoriety with their rising star, Microphonics, who is set to fill the void in the rap world that was left by the deaths Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls.
After a massacre occurs at Great Minds Studio, Detective Jensen is ordered to go undercover inside the Willie Lynch Prison Complex to solve a string of murders. Determined to prove himself to his superiors, Detective Jensen goes beyond the call of duty and finds himself fighting for his life. Will his true identity be known? Will he be able to get out alive or will the corruption of the jail system swallow him alive?
For success, the author must make the reader care about the destiny of the principals, and sustain this anxiety, or suspense… - Ken Follett

Shaka Senghor has delivered a masterpiece with the release of Crack: Volume Two. As you read this selection, you can definitely see the growth in his writing style which made Crack: Volume 2 a very smooth read for me. This book is fast-paced, suspenseful, addictive, and sure to have you begging for more.
The readers are given an inside look into the corruption that happens in the prison systems. From the problem of prisoner/staff fraternization, misuse of authority, trafficking in contraband, and abuse of prisoners
“When people are treated like animals, it’s likely they’ll respond like animals.”
It made him sick every time he went inside an institution and saw state-of-the art facilities. To him, it was just one more in a long list of signs that the state had set in motion a devious plan to ensnare the young Black males in his community.
I was able to learn more about the characters this time around, and no matter what these characters had going on in their lives, they all had some things in common: Love of their family, fear of losing their family, and loyalty to their family.
I highly recommend you order this book along with Crack: Volume One – I guarantee you will fall in love with the writing style of Mr. Shaka Senghor. I can now officially say Shaka Senghor is the filling the void left by my all-time favorite author, Mr. Donald Goines. Thank- You Mr. Senghor.
