Raised by his grandmother, he ends up going to an Ivy League school, shines bright and ends up landing the American dream job on Wall Street. Enjoying the posh and enviable life on Wall Street as one of its top players-, his life takes the most serious of turns when he realizes that Wall Street is a lot like growing up on the mean streets of North Philadelphia , but now there are other villains he must contend with as well as racism and jealousy. He meets shrewd and diabolical characters at every turn that threatens to add him to the list of statistics…another African-American male dead or in jail before his prime.
