Cedric shares from his book,
“There are literally hundreds of thousands of Bayboys
Across this nation
Children still sprouting of a yesterdays
Dark drug cultural creation’s living dark reality
From cradle to cage
This story could be shared by many of them

The accursed dark breeding of a parental anti-nurturing
The days of a lost schooling
The inevitable gang affiliations
The ladder climbing to kingpinship
The bloody steps taken along the way

The falling in love and family
The betrayal in criminal organizations
The eventual and inevitable arrest
The writing Babylon love is simply the reality
From which they arrive
Published by Page Publishing, Cedric’s engrossing book is a raw, lyrical exploration of life in the Motor City.
