Share Article

First-time novelist Brandon McCalla has written Diamond Drought, a new work of fiction being hailed as AmericaÂ?s first hip-hop soap opera.

The story takes place in present day Brooklyn, NY and focuses on the life of Rich, a young drug hustler trying to pull himself and his family out of a life of crime. But the book doesn’t just focus on the hard-core elements of the streets. It also features a number of sub-plots that deal with such themes as friendship, loyalty, love and revenge.

McCalla, a hip hop enthusiast, weaves into Diamond Drought his unique perspective on the social, political and economic trends affecting the urban music scene. An on-line excerpt is available from Writersandpoets.com at http://writersandpoets.com/home.htm

McCalla is available for interviews about Diamond Drought, as well as its hotly anticipated sequel, Diamond Dynasty. McCalla can also comment as an expert on any of these subjects: urban music, the importance of hip hop to the youth, the drug culture, and inner-city gang violence.
