Still Crazy

Author:Darrin Lowery

Kevin Allen, a rich, handsome author and self-reformed Mack, is now suffering from writer's block. Desperately in need of a great story in order to renegotiate with his publisher to maintain his extravagant life-style, Kevin decides to go back to his hometown of Chicago for inspiration. While in Chi-town, he gets reacquainted with an ex-love (Yolanda) that he'd last seen during their stormy relationship that violently came to an end.
Unexpectedly, Yolanda appears at a book-event where Kevin is the star-attraction, looking every bit as stunningly beautiful as the picture he's had frozen in his head for years. She still has the looks of music video model and almost makes him forget as to the reason he'd ever broken off their relationship.
It's no secret, Yolanda had always been the jealous type. And, Kevin's explanation to his boyz, defending his decision for kicking a woman that fine to the curb was, "She's Crazy!".
The combination of Kevin's vulnerable state in his career, along with the tantalizing opportunity to hit that again, causes Kevin to contemplate renewing his expired Players-Card, one last time. What harm could one night of passion create?

Capturing as never before the matchless passion and searing honesty of the late Tupac Shakur, the brilliant young rapper, actor, and poet who was mysteriously gunned down in Las Vegas seven years ago, Resurrection showcases a range of previously unreleased interviews, writings, and private photographs and stands as an indelible testament to the artist's astonishing cultural legacy. Here is Tupac Shakur unvarnished, stripped of the shroud of legend and the romance of myth-in his own space, in his own words, and always, whatever the consequence, on his own terms. Comprised entirely of Shakur's own words and published to coincide with the nationwide cinema release of a major documentary film by MTV and Amaru Entertainment, the book penetrates Tupac's iconic persona to illuminate a flesh-and-blood artist revealing his innermost thoughts and emotions with relentless candor. Featuring stills from never-beforeseen concerts and home movies; dozens of rare photographs donated by family, close friends, and the MTV archives; previously unpublished poetry; and exclusive excerpts from Shakur's journals, poetry, and personal correspondence, Resurrection crystallizes the enduring significance and impact of one of the entertainment ndustry's most complex, haunting, and influential artists of all time.
