I Used To Love Her
How The Commercialization Of Rap Music Has Destroyed Black America



Edited By: Ryan C. Greene

Synopsis:  This book is an open letter to the emcee and the entire hip-hop community to take inventory on the destruction that has been sewn into our community. What once started as a positive culture of musical poets that embraced education, creativity, and empowerment of our race has evolved into a money making machine that promotes sex, drugs and getting rich by any means necessary. The true emcee has become a dying breed that has been forced into obscurity by large conglomerates that now run hip hop.


"I USED TO LOVE HER" will be a collection of commentaries and writings from people from all walks of life discussing the effects of commercialized rap music on different aspects of black culture.

SWEET SIXTEEN

If you had told me as a kid that one day I would illustrate a Marvel comic, I would have bet my right arm (make it YOUR right arm) that it would be Spider-Man. I never dreamed I'd be co-artist (with Barbara Slate) on a series for girls! Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Six issues in all plus a seventh bonus issue. So have I ever worked for Marvel comics? You bet!!!
