Thug Life, however, is an unconvincing novel that seems to play more on the author's fantasies than any reality. During the shooting a bullit hit a gas station and some peo I read the book . Filled with uninteresting characters and a storyline that at the very least feels implausible, and seems more about irrelevant name dropping, I can only come to this conclusion: Stick to non-fiction. The author has another book out about his life called Monster: The Autobiography of an . Gang Member that I also read. its basically about a guy called lapeace. He is a crip but is now stopped banging.

The follow up to his best-selling memoir Monster, Sanyika Shakur’s T.H.U.G. L.I.F.E. is a vicious, heart-wrenching and true-to-life novel about an LA gang member that masterfully captures the violence and depravity of gang life. Shakur’s protagonist is Lapeace, the leader of the Eight Tray Crips gang in South Central Los Angeles. In a deadly gunfight with Anyhow, a Blood and Lapeace’s rival since childhood, eight innocent civilians are killed. Anyhow is captured. Lapeace becomes a fugitive and he must hide out in the home of his girlfriend, Tashima, a hip-hop mogul as a pair of crooked LA detectives, John Sweeney and Jesse Mendoza, attempt to track him down.This novel was written from the confines of Shakur’s jail cell, and the authenticity of its street scenes--the relentlessness of violence, the do-or-die attitude of each side of the gang war, the sheer joy in the killing--is a testament to the hell that has been a majority of Shakur’s life. With T.H.U.G. L.I.F.E., Shakur delivers a powerful and gripping story about the terror of gang life and one man’s attempt to free himself.

if you looking for this book to be like the book monster. it isn't, this book is nowhere near it. reading this book made me think of how L.A. is now.
the book is a good read to me. people that started off friends ended up being enemies for life. one always trying to out due the other. sets that was cool before, now enemies within the crips. a lot of music is talked about all thru the book. the one crooked cop in the book, i was so happy when someone took him out. i'm a marine myself, he pissed me off.
just don't based the book off monster or you will not like it.

Monster was one of the prolific, well-written, in-your-face books in history. I think it should be mandatory reading for high school students. But that was Mr. Shakur's personal story and perceptions on life. This piece of crap is a terrible written, generic piece of garbage. The dialogue is forced and unbelievable. The story id ludicrous. The characters are shallow and have been seen in millions of other crappy "hood story" books. the author attemps and fails miserably to intertwine his philosophies that he presented towards the end of "Monster" into the story, having all characters saying words like "overstand" and "new Afrikkans". He is so unoriginal that he steals half of the story of Death Row records and just throws it in there, but in this book Death Row still exists and the main character- LaPeece- is sleeping with a woman who is an executive at a rival record company. Please, I beg you, don't waste your time and ESPECIALLY your money on this steaming pile of excrement

If you've read "Monster" then this is a must have to add to that collection.
From a street and sophisticated look at the life in South Central Los Angeles, here is the best-selling Author's debut "novel" to set the stage of what may become a series of real-to-life talez of a young black male.

The Protagonist is introduced as "LaPeace" which stands for "no-peace" his life intertwines with people of different classes.
His loves interests,the code of the street,shootouts and tradagies plagues Lapeaces life as he tries to get hold of it.
The author exposes the grime of the street,the consequences of being a snitch and everyday life of an a "ghetto star" (O.G)
Some familiar characters from His autobiography resurface making this a fictional look at the authors "real" life.
The Setting is in South Central around the mid-90s, the height of many artists career including Tupac Shakur known in the book as "Askari". Remember that fateful night in Vegas when this beautiful artist was cowardly cutdown? Lapeace happens to be there on the night and sheds light from his recollection of events of that moment - the shooting of "Askari" (Tupac) in '96.
Most of the plot centers on (3) things - Love,Loyalty and Friendship.
Of course there is heart-pumping moments throughout the book (The Crenshaw Massacre) mixed with his erotic encounters - the author endeavors to merge fantasy and reality as close as he can, and does so efficiently.
A Thrill of a adventures from Lapeaces' childhood to manhood.
Homicide,Thugs,Cops,Women,Money,Fame,family and the Homies.... Lapeace is on Mission.
Much Love from New Zealand

I was a huge fan of his autobiography so I felt the need to read this book too. He's truly a talented writer and this book is an easy read although fiction; which I do not prefer. It shows love exists even in lives where people have to live everyday and show no emotion. If you buy this you'll love it too. Who would guess a former gangbanger had all this in him too. Wish u the best San. I hope you find happiness too one day despite all your demends!!

Gangsterism Continues in this gripping "partially" fictional account of Sanyika's experiences post Monster. Having read some of the inferior works which were inspired by the commercial success of "Monster" the autobiography, it was refreshing to see the talent and originality which earned Sanyika critical acclaim back on display. T.H.U.G. L.I.F.E. is no less dramatic as life in the hood provides enough drama filled moments for a hundred books.

Love, loyalty, deceit, anguish, pain, hope, disappointment and confusion are as much the focus as the assortment of crooked cops, gang rivals and assortment of characters from ETG. The main character is LaPeace an older more focused version of the infamous Monster. The reference being to the state of living the author has been forced into as he struggles to escape his notorious past. La being Swahili for No coupled with peace.

The author also deals openly with the pain of a failed marriage making little effort to conceal the identity of his ex-wife Tamu from LaPeace's unfaithful mate Tammy. He talk's about his concern for his children and his search and desire to find true love. Of course his loyalty to his hood remain a central focus and we are introduced to a new generation of homies from ETG. Crazy De, Diamond, Sidewinder, Tray-Stone, Tray-Ball, Mad Bone and Lil Spike are mentioned in passing as a reminder of the reverence and esteem in which they are held by the author. Tiny and Sista Monster, Lil, Baby, Tiny Stag, Sista Sodi, Sekou and a variety of new personas round out the cast.

One of the most interesting portions of the book is the authors explanation of the shooting of Tupac Shakur. That alone is worth the price of the title as Sanyika draws on past interviews and conversations with accused triggerman Orlando Anderson and former Death row records head Suge Knight to formulate an interesting narrative. No love is shown for Suge Knight who appears as Deathrow Records Chief Simon Knowles nor is there any love for an unidentified character known as Bingo though there is more than enough bio information provided on Bingo to identify him to those in the know. There is also a detailed explanation of his involvement with the Spear and Shield collective and his identification with the Shakur tribe.

The author proves once again he is one of the best at painting word pictures and including the reader in the events of which he writes. If you enjoyed Monster, then you'll undoubtably enjoyed T.H.U.G. L.I.F.E.

While this may not be my absolute favorite book, it has been a great read. Like many series the first book is always better but this is a good follow up.
