Advance praise for H.N.I.C.:
"You can tell that a true lyricist created this gritty tale about greed, betrayal, and street romance. The wordplay is dead on. Combine that with the details that give the freshness of immediate experience and you are no longer reading the story, you are suddenly a character in it. This is what good writing does—it puts you right there in the middle of the action. Excellent read. Salute!" —Miasha, best-selling author of Secret Society
"Prodigy is a proven storyteller and his skills spill over into the literature game effortlessly. This is a five-star read." —JaQuavis Coleman, best-selling coauthor of the Cartel series
