I am delighted to invite you to join me and my guest Author Courtney R. Brown Jr. whose novel “The Rise & Fall of an Urban Empire”. This fascinating novel is an in-depth flashback of the lives of "True Documented Heroin Kingpins", not the fabricated fairy tale existence most street level hustlers now claim to live. To date, The Fat Man and The Field Marshal's illegal earnings could easily still label them MVP's in Detroit's Underworld Drug Game. Accumulating more than a million dollars a month in heroin sales, these childhood friends lived lavish, privileged lifestyles, that today's nickel and dime street hustlers could only dream of. Courtney R. Brown Jr., chronicles his father and Mr. Jackson’s Exploits from Meager Beginnings in the Civil Rights Era on to their ‘rise and fall’ in the posh suburbs of ‘70s Detroit. "The Kingpin's Kid", a film based upon the book, "The Rise and Fall of an Urban Empire", By Courtney Brown is currently in production in conjunction with Parliament Studios. While it is still in development, it has generated a substantial buzz at film festivals, in print media and internet websites as well as social media like Facebook and YouTube.
