*Deal of the Day*



For the first time, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson opens up about his amazing comeback—from tragic personal loss to thriving businessman and cable’s highest-paid executive—in this unique self-help guide, his first since his blockbuster New York Times bestseller The 50th Law.

In his early twenties Curtis Jackson, known as 50 Cent rose to the heights of fame and power in the cutthroat music business. A decade ago the multi-platinum selling rap artist decided to pivot. His ability to adapt to change was demonstrated when he became the executive producer and star of Power, a high-octane, gripping crime drama centered around a drug kingpin’s family. The series quickly became “appointment” television, leading to Jackson inking a four-year, $150 million contract with the Starz network—the most lucrative deal in premium cable history.

Now, in his most personal book, Jackson shakes up the self-help category with his unique, cutting-edge lessons and hard-earned advice on embracing change. Where The 50th Law tells readers “fear nothing and you shall succeed,” Hustle Harder, Hustle Smarter builds on this message, combining it with Jackson’s street smarts and hard-learned corporate savvy to help readers successfully achieve their own comeback—and to learn to flow with the changes that disrupt their own lives.

*Book of the Day*

Today’s book has been adapted into a television series, that also won an Emmy last night.

The first and only full biography on legendary Harlem gangster, Bumpy Johnson who was depicted in the movies Cotton Club, Hoodlum and American Gangster Al Capone may have ruled Chicago. Lucky Luciano may have run most of New York City. But from the 1930s to the late 1960s, when it came to Harlem, the undisputed king of the underworld was Ellsworth Bumpy Johnson. Bumpy was a man whose contradictions are still the root of many an argument in Harlem. But there is one thing on which both his supporters and detractors agree in his lifetime, Bumpy was the man in Harlem. Harlem Godfather: The Rap on My Husband, Ellsworth Bumpy Johnson is the first complete biography of a man who for years was Harlem s best kept, and most cherished secret. There is also a full chapter on Madame Stephanie St . Clair, the infamous Harlem numbers banker who instigated the famous fight with Jewish mobster Dutch Schultz. The book is written by Bumpy’s widow, Mayme Johnson, and details not only his criminal life but also his personal life. This book also details Bumpy’s relationship Harlem dopedealer with Frank Lucas, who has called himself Bumpy’s right-hand man, but was — according to Mrs. Johnson — little more than a flunky.

Book Review: The View 2 by Untamed

Book 2 picks up right where book 1 left off…Hudson and Karli settling into married life, much to the dismay of others. This would include Patricia (Karli’s Mother) and Michael, the ex-husband who can’t let go.

If I could give this book another subtitle, it would have to be “Two-Faced”, because many of the characters ere just that! They would send their representative, while plotting and scheming in the background. It seems as if Karli can’t trust ANYONE…except her infant daughter.

With all of the drama, I’m still Team Hudson. I felt like Michael went above and beyond to sabotage Karli and Hudson’s marriage.

With that being said, I recommend that you pick up this 💎💎💎💎, and thank @authoruntamed for mentioning Diamond’s Literary World.

The New York Times Bestseller!

After decades of silence, Robyn Crawford, close friend, collaborator, and confidante of Whitney Houston, shares her story.

Whitney Houston is as big a superstar as the music business has ever known. She exploded on the scene in 1985 with her debut album and spent the next two decades dominating the charts and capturing the hearts of fans around the world. One person was there by her side through it all—her best friend, Robyn Crawford.

Since Whitney’s death in 2012, Robyn has stayed out of the limelight and held the great joys, wild adventures, and hard truths of her life with Whitney close to her heart. Now, for the first time ever, Crawford opens up in her memoir, A Song for You.

With warmth, candor, and an impressive recall of detail, Robyn describes the two meeting as teenagers in the 1980s, and how their lives and friendship evolved as Whitney recorded her first album and Robyn pursued her promising Division I basketball career. Together during countless sold-out world tours, behind the scenes as hit after hit was recorded, through Whitney’s marriage and the birth of her daughter, the two navigated often challenging families, great loves, and painful losses, always supporting each other with laughter and friendship.

Deeply personal and heartfelt, A Song for You is the vital, honest, and previously untold story that provides an understanding of the complex life of Whitney Houston. Finally, the person who knew her best sets the record straight.

Mulatto: Daughter of America’s by Florencia LaChance

When I opened this book, I had no idea that it was the memoir of the illegitimate granddaughter of Ellsworth “Bumpy” Johnson aka The Godfather of Harlem. It recents horrific stories of abuse, abandonment, addiction and mental illness.

Florencia grew up in a house filled with love, until her stepfather came along. Treated differently, she often sought solace in other family members, and eventually found herself being shuffled around from place to place. It led to many years of instability and struggle.

At times, this heartbreaking story was hard to read, because each time I found myself cheering for Florencia, something would happen. I loved that things started to take shape when she embraced motherhood.

Go pick up this 💎💎💎💎book by @authorflorencia. I would love to hear your thoughts.

The Fury are coming to Nashville!

Nashville, Tennessee is one of the fastest growing cities in the country. Known for country music, the Grand Old Opry, hot chicken, the Titans and the Predators, the newest franchise NBA team would be added to the list. The Fury were launching their inaugural year and the team is about to heat up the city.

Basketball isn’t the only thing going on with the team. The players, owners, and other members of the staff have personal lives that aren’t always as glamorous as they portray. Love, lies, and drama. Everybody has some in their lives, athletes and those around them are no different.

Kier Keeling is a busy mom with a fulfilling career and a long-distance love she wouldn’t trade for anything. Her business life gets hectic when the marketing firm where she works gets the contract to work with the Nashville Fury. She knows one of the players personally but hasn’t seen him since graduate school. She was hoping things stayed that way.

Reichen Brandt had been in the League for four years. His career was red-hot, everything he worked for his entire life. He was riding high and he was determined to live life and stay on top. When he’s asked to join the Nashville Fury, he jumps at the chance to build a brand-new team and see what a new city has to offer.

What happens when you run into the person that you never expected to see again? What do you do when things you never expected come to light? Everyone has something they regret or want to hide. The question is will they be able to handle answers that are revealed when they find out everything they missed?

Book of the Day: Livin’ Life Like It’s Golden by Brenda Hampton

Today’s book is the one mentioned on the last episode of the Real Housewives of Potomac by @brendahampton_1.

On the outside looking in, Neil and Essence Danforth appear to have it all. But when Essence finds herself in a car accident with Preston Tillman, a heart-throbbing, charming young man who adores her at first sight, she learns that her marriage is not as solid as she thinks. Preston is determined to one day make Essence his wife. He will stop at nothing to take her from the arms of a man he doesn’t think deserves her. Neil is blindsided by Essence’s betrayal, and never in his wildest dreams did he think she’d be willing to partake in a sexual tryst, right in their own bedroom. Boldly making love between the sheets while he’s working is one thing, but lying about the affair is another. Critical decisions have to be made, and once the dust settles, a bombshell could send Essence to her knees, wishing she’d never chosen lust over love.
