2 Monster

Monster: The Autobiography of an L A Gang Member, by Sanyika Shakur, aka Monster Kody Scott

Category:  Biography

Subject/Topic:  “After pumping eight blasts from a sawed-off shotgun at a group of rival gang members, eleven year old Kody Scott was initiated into the L.A. gang the Crips.  He quickly matured into one of the most formidable Crip combat soldiers, earning the name Monster fro committing acts of brutality and violence that repulsed even fellow gang members.  When the inevitable jail term confined him to a maximum security cell, Scott channeled his aggression and drive into educating himself.  A complete political and personal transformation followed: from MOnster to Sanyika Shakur, black nationalist, member of the New Afrikan Independence Movement, and crusader against the causes of gangsterism.” – from the book’s back cover
